Catbrook Centenary

Cook Book

We want YOUR favourite recipes!


Catbrook & District Memorial Hall is shortly going to be celebrating its centenary, so the idea is to create a recipe book made up of 100 personal recipes from all of us who live in the local area. We're looking for soups, starters, snacks, children's recipes, main courses, salads, accompaniments, desserts, cakes, biscuits - well, anything that involves lovely FOOD!


We also want your drinks and cocktails recipes - there may be a queue for the testing of this section!


Is your dish special to you? Please also let us

have any anecdotes that go with your recipe,

we'd love to include them.


The finished book will be sold to raise funds for

the continuing upkeep of the hall


The recipes will be compiled into a user friendly cookery book, professionally printed, so we're after your recipe including the ingredients, how you make it and (eventually) a photo of you or your dish. This is a photo of 'Sarah's Cookies' just to show you how simple it could be. You'll be able to buy copies of the book for yourself and your relatives!


NOTE: If your recipe comes straight out of a cookery book then we need to know which book so we can give the original creator a credit. If you've tweaked it in any way then there are no copyright issues...

So how does it work?


We'd like you to send us YOUR favourite recipe, it's as simple as that! You can either email it to us using the 'Submit Recipe' button below, or you can hand it on a piece of paper to any of the committee members at any event. We are aiming to have 100 recipes in the book to celebrate 100 years of Catbrook Memorial Hall - send us yours now!

Then what happens?


There's a small group of people (Justine, Gretchen, Tracey and Sarah) who will look at all the recipes, see that we have a good balance and then ask for volunteers to test them and, most importantly, TASTE them! Once the book is printed you'll be able to buy it, any profits will go to Catbrook & District Memorial Hall. We plan to have the book ready for sale in 2020.
