Cookbook a tasty Christmas gift
IF you are looking for a stocking stuffer with lasting appeal, Mid North Coast Community Care Options’ new cookbook could be the item you are after.
Launched this week at the organisation’s Christmas party at the Chill Out Cafe, the CCO Cook Book 2 of Tasty Delights is a collection of recipes contributed by CCO staff and clients, their relatives and friends.
The party was the final event for the year in the Nana’s Kitchen series of regular gatherings for clients.
CCO case manager Jenny Green said they had wanted to get people out of their houses, meeting each other and enjoying a meal together.
She said the gatherings had guest speakers, including chefs, and had introduced clients to a lot of new ideas, but the main benefit had been the opportunity they had of getting to know each other and enjoy each other’s company
“A lot of people don’t cook for themselves,” Ms Green said.
“They lose the touch.”
Tasty Delights 2 is the second cookbook the CCO has produced and Ms Green said the next would be a book on cooking for one person.
Chef Michelle Mathews whipped up platters of fresh and delicious food for the Christmas party, including some dishes from Tasty Delights 2.
