Pace Center for Girls creates ‘Men Who Cook’ cookbook


PENSACOLA, Fla (WKRG) — The Pace Center for Girls serving Escambia and Santa Rosa counties canceled their annual fundraiser due to COVID-19.

To make up for lost funding, the organization pulled together more than 130 recipes targeted to help men show some skills in the kitchen.

‘Men Who Cook’ Cookbook:

  • Cookbooks are just $40 a copy and can be purchased online or over the phone.
  • (Can also purchase through several downtown shops)
  • SWEET DEAL – Buy 2 books, get the 3rd for ½ price = 3 Books for $100. (One to keep, two to gift!) Bulk options available for companies and organizations.

When we were forced to forego our in-person event this year due to COVID-19, our Men Who Cook fundraiser committee came together and quickly put the plan into place to create this cookbook.
