BE prepared to make the best $7.50 investment ever and buy a very special recipe book at this Sunday’s Slice of Haven food and wine festival.
The littlies at Kendall Community Preschool have been really getting their hands dirty in their school vege patch, planting, watering, composting, cultivating seeds, planting again and looking after the school chooks.
They have produced a colourful recipe book which chronicles their journey from yard to plate.
The kids made and ate fresh pesto with handmade pasta, handmade butter, silverbeet and cheese pie, Fathers Day apricot squares, a Spanish tortilla made with fresh eggs from the chooks, mint, strawberry and pineapple platters, and salad kebabs.
These delicious delights are found in the book along with photos of the children making and enjoying them.
Preschool director Susan Crowle said originally the recipe book was to be a gift to the students involved in the vege patch project.
“It was a way to remember all the wonderful hours spent growing, harvesting, preparing, cooking and eating good food with friends,” Susan said.
The parents then purchased copies for Christmas presents last year and the well-loved book sold out.
A reprint of the Kendall Community Preschool Cooking Book is on the press and copies will be sold at Slice of Haven this Sunday at stall number 73, along with seedlings cultivated from the preschool’s garden. Go and say G’Day to these young green thumbs and pick up your book. All money raised goes to funding more activities for the preschool students’ education.
