Friend of the Food Chain and mistress of the Hideout’s Soup and Bread and Veggie Bingo series’ Martha Bayne has set up a Kickstarter page to offset printing costs for Soup and Bread: the Cookbook, featuring recipes from a bevy of local talent (including yours truly), and design by former Reader art director Sheila Sachs, so you know it’ll be mighty pretty.

The second season of Soup and Bread starts up January 6, and Martha’s hoping the book’ll be ready in December. Profits will benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
