RESTAURANTS and chefs in Lyme Regis and Axminster have donated some of their best recipes to support a local charity.
Due to the COVID lockdown restrictions, Axminster and Lyme Cancer Support had to cancel all planned in-person fundraising events for 2020, but it has now published a cookbook with a difference to boost coffers.
‘Recipes with Love’ is the first community cookbook published by Axminster and Lyme Cancer Support. It draws together a collection of the most-loved recipes from chefs, popular restaurants and supporters of the charity.
Some of those contributing include Tierra Kitchen, Monmouth Pantry and The Galley Café of Lyme Regis, among many others.
Mary Kahn, founder of the charity, said: “This book has been brought together quickly and I’d like to thank the many people and businesses that have contributed to its production. When the first lockdown started, we wanted a project that would bring our community together and help with our fund raising efforts.
“Every recipe was tried and tested, with our kitchens resembling the ‘Bake Off’ tent at times. As a charity, our aim is to support anyone affected by any cancer, in our area. The profits from the sale of the book help to continue our needed work and services in the Axminster and Lyme areas.”
‘Recipes with Love’ has 39 recipes split into two savoury and sweet sections, each one with some notes on the origin of the recipe or additional information and simple-to-follow guides with refreshing and clear photography.
The book is available from the charity’s online shop, as well as from Archway Bookshop in Axminster, Serendip Bookshop in Lyme Regis, Felicity’s Farm Shop in Morcombelake, Millers Farm Shop in Kilmington, and Dalwood Post Office.
