Recipe book

You can buy our recipe book at Saturday rehearsals.

We all know we've got exceptional cooks in our midst. Who can forget the myriad of salads, divine Jansson's Temptation, or green-orange spinach-lentil roulade at Christmas parties? As for cake - well, that's what we come for on a Saturday morning!

So in 2018 we created a cakes and parties bookJane Dorner (soprano) worked really hard to collate, illustrate, and design the book, and arrange production. Choir member and artist Sarah McMenemy produced a wonderful cover for it.

Thank you to everyone who contributed.
