ALMOST 90 Daventry women have put their heads together and their aprons on to create a recipe book.

Members of the Daventry Women’s Guild have contributed their own family recipes to create the ‘Family favourite recipes - fit for a Queen’ cook book.

The group have created and designed the books, with the help of designer Stephanie Thannhauser, to raise club funds.

Club member Sheila Baker said: “We felt the main problem with modern day recipes are they can be quite complicated and require tiny amounts of expensive ingredients.

“We realised most of our members had been cooking family meals for years, many of them using recipes handed down from their mothers and grandmothers.

“We began to collect these and decided to put them together into a book.”

The book contains over 100 recipes in total.

A grant from Daventry District Housing‘s Community Chest fund helped the Women’s Guild with printing costs and the book will be sold at £4.99 to make profits for the group.

The book is currently on sale at New Image hairdressers and the Hideout Cafe in Sheaf Street or directly from Daventry Townswomen’s Guild on 01327 705662 or emial daventry

The group also have a forthcoming open day event at the Daventry iCon on Saturday, October 20 from 10.30am until 4pm. The tickets for the informal event are £20 and include coffee on arrival, a light lunch, guest speaker Reverend Canon Roger Royle and a presentation from Lucy Adlington.
