Lurking in Tamahere kitchen cupboards may be a 25-year-old or so Tamahere School cookbook.
If so, it’s time to consider an upgrade and a new generation of school parents are up for the job.
The Tamahere School Cookbook Committee is embarking on the exciting task of creating a cookbook for the current era and is inviting recipe contributions from the community.
“All profits raised will go towards our new school pool,” says Angie Millar of the organising committee.
Tamahere families, students, and teachers as well as local chefs, cafes, caterers, and celebrities are being asked for their favourite family recipes.
“We are basing the cookbook around family favourites – simple and easy, tried and tested recipes that everyone raves about, recipes that have been cooked many times and have pleased family and friends,” Millar says.
“We ask that all families supply at least one recipe, and up to three per family.”
Recipe Categories: breakfast, smoothies/juices, healthy snacks, soups, salads, weekday family meals, nibbles, entertaining, kids’ parties, Dad’s Army, baking, and desserts.
Recipes need to be submitted via an online form here on a dedicated website, TamahereCooks, by Friday, September 11.
UPDATE: The finished cookbook, Divine Eats, is now on sale. To buy visit here.
Tamahere Forum would be interested to know if anyone still has a copy of the school cookbook from a quarter of a century ago? And are there earlier or later cookbooks from other eras? Are they well thumbed? Did they give rise to lasting family favourites?
