David Nicholls, executive chef of the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park hotel in London, asked world-renowned chefs and food writers to contribute their favorite recipes for his new cookbook, “Off Duty, The World's Greatest Chefs Cook at Home.” They include Daniel Boulud, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Thomas Keller, Alain Ducasse, Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsey, Nigella Lawson, Eric Ziebold, and Nobu Matsuhisa. Nicholls is publishing the book to raise funds for spinal cord injury research. In 2003, Nicholls’ son became paralyzed from the neck down, after a diving accident. Nicholls hopes research will enable son and others with spinal cord injuries to walk again. (For more on the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation, visit www.nichollsfoundation.org.uk.)

Proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation, which aims to support spinal cord research along with development, awareness, and rehabilitation.
