The Green Beans & Guacamole cookbook project stems from the love for people like Austin Hanson, who have intellectual disabilities. When Austin wanted to throw his mother a surprise birthday party, he ordered the flowers and balloons, purchased the cake, and decided the on menu. As you can imagine, it was a wonderful affair and everyone enjoyed the menu, which consisted of green beans and guacamole! The GB&G coffee-table style cookbook will feature recipes from Houston’s top restaurants (think Phillipe, Tony’s and Mark’s) with proceeds benefiting the ARC, an organization advocating for people with intellectual and other disabilities. Beth Walker from our Houston office has been active in the project. A recent event at one of Houston’s new hot spots, Sorell, raised over $10,000 for the project.
