A ‘delicious’ new book is set to take the culinary fame started by Trundle’s Bush Tucker Day to the next level.
The Parents and Friends committee (P&F) of St Patrick’s Parish School in Trundle has launched its highly anticipated recipe book called Cook.
It is a beautifully designed, full-colour recipe book, containing more than 215 recipes. It is the work of some of the best cooks in rural Australia, with contributions from St Patrick’s students (past and present), parents, grandparents, teachers, community members and local cooks.
The recipes are drawn from the inherited culinary wisdom passed down from generation to generation of country chefs. The recipes range from Asian Breakfast Soup to Marinara Linguine; Marshmallow Jelly Cake to Pear and Hazelnut Cheesecake; Condensed Milk Pikelets to Fig Jam.
There’s even a recipe for Camel Curry. Filled with ‘mouthwatering’ photographs, and drawings by some of the school’s 33 students, the book also has advice on how to keep backyard chickens and growing vegetables.
“Cooking and sharing recipes is at the very heart of country life,” says P& F President Kate Berry. “Many friendships have been forged, and memories made, over a cup of tea and scones, or a steaming bowl of soup at school events.”
While COVID-19 has put a stop to a proper launch celebration for the book, nothing can take away from the pleasure of the book itself.
All proceeds will directly benefit the students. To order a copy of the book at $30, email firstname.lastname@example.org or pop into the school office.
