The cast of Broadway's "Les Miserables" has come up with an innovative way to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS: a cookbook.

Ah, but not just any cookbook. The "Foodbook," designed to resemble a certain well-known theatre program, contain recipes that can be sung to the tune of songs from "Les Miz."

Examples:

* "Red and Black Chili" (to the tune of "Red and Black") begins; "Red . . . the beans you soak at night / Black . . . the skillet which you light / Onions, garlic it will hold / Sauteed 'til they turn to gold."

* "I Creamed a Cream Potato Soup" (to the tune of "I Dreamed a Dream") begins "I melted butter in a pot / The pot was large for leeks and celery. / I cooked ten minutes, not too hot. / I stirred it often, as they tell me." The book includes a total of 46 recipes, from "One Dip More" to "Bring Him Home [Fries]," "Empty Pears With Chocolate Ladles" and "Who Am Ice."

All the recipes are written in conventional style as well ("for those who can't carry a tune").

The cookbook costs $15 and can be ordered by writing to: "Les Miserables," BC/EFA, 1650 Broadway, Suite 501, New York, NY 10019.
