Dear XXXX,

I am writing to ask you, if you might be willing to donate one of your recipes to a fine cause: WikiEducator

WikiEducator (WE) is to education, what Wikipedia is to information (we are open source, and WikiEducator's founder sits on the International Advisory Board of the Wikimedia Foundation - the same technology engine of Wikipedia).

WikiEducator is a global project of the Commonwealth of Learning in Vancouver (, and is aligned to achieving the UN's Millennium Development goals. We have over 10,000 users in many countries throughout the world, and are in the top 150,000 websites in the world. We are growing rapidly...Check out our global traffic rankings - ou can see our global traffic rankings at:

We are developing a project node within WikiEducator, devoted to developing Open Educational Resources for the Culinary Profession - (as is the wiki-way, we are a work-in-progress).

We are asking our favourite chefs to donate recipes in any format (i.e., text, images, audio, video) ~ so that others may learn from their experience....and elevate the Culinary Profession around the world!

You will be in fine company:

  • Ryan Stone, Sous-Chef, Vancouver Mariott Pinnacle Hotel Downtown, Vancouver, Canada
