Charity recipe book launched by young chef of the year

Taste Recipe Book Launch

Favourite recipes from local food spots and keen cooks living and working in Chesterfield have been gathered together by Chesterfield College to create Taste, a mouth-watering recipe book, to raise money for Ashgate Hospicecare. Derbyshire Young Chef of the Year Natasha Hart visited Ashgate Hospicecare help launch the new book and give some top tips for making her recipe at home.

Packed full of savoury and sweet delights the book includes delicious treats like a stuffed chicken recipe from the Chesterfield Football Club Physio, Jamie Hewitt and a chocolate and caramac Roulade from Andrea Loomes, Head Chef at Ashgate Hospicecare.

Local restaurants and food retailers like Calabria and Jacksons the Bakers have shared their favourite recipes too, making the book a must for any self-respecting foodie to have on their cook book shelf!

Mhairi Herring, from Ashgate Hospicecare said “Thanks to all who have contributed to the Taste book and to Chesterfield College for producing it. Every penny from the sale of Taste will raise vital funds to allow us to provide care for people with life limiting illnesses. So grab a copy and get cooking. The recipes look delicious. I can’t wait to try Ainsley Harriott’s sticky toffee pudding. I wonder if the calories won’t count as it is all for charity!”

This latest fundraising effort is part of a bigger campaign by Chesterfield College to raise £30,000 for the Hospice’s £1 million Urgent Bed Appeal

The books are now on sale for £5 from Ashgate Hospicecare shops, Chesterfield College, Chesterfield Football Club, Calabria, Jacksons the Bakers and Maison Mes Amis.
