A family favourite – or maybe your grandmother’s signature dish? Whangaparaoa School’s Parents & Friends Association is producing a recipe book as a fundraiser, and is looking for recipes from the community which have a special story behind them, or are connected to the Hibiscus Coast in some way.
Recipes can cover all categories from mid-week family meals, to party food or lunchbox ideas.
PFA member Sian Stimson says while many people search online for recipes, it can be frustrating when you can’t find the same recipe a second time, your device’s battery runs flat, or the end result is nothing like you expected!
All the recipes for the book are being tested and Sian’s family tested kumara brownies.
She says a recipe book can also be a great way to teach children and young people how to cook, involve them in planning meals, and expose them to a wide variety of foods.
Recipes, and photos if possible, can be emailed to email@example.com by Friday, July 7.
