Final call for recipes from Somerset families

Families in Somerset are being reminded they only have a few days left to provide their favourite recipe for a charity cookbook to raise money for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

Families in Somerset are being reminded they only have a few days left to provide their favourite recipe for a charity cookbook to raise money for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.



Rural insurance firm Cornish Mutual launched an appeal recently for people to upload traditional, homemade dishes to a special website http://www.eattogether.co.uk/ as part of the Come Together, Eat Together campaign.



Food fans have until Friday 25 March to get their entries in for the Air Ambulance charity cookbook which will be produced and launched later this year.



A number of well-known local chefs including Rick Stein, Lesley Waters, Sam Moody, Arty Williams and James Knight-Pacheco have already contributed recipes to the cookbook and it is expected there will be around 30 dishes included once it is finished.



Melissa Ward from Cornish Mutual, said: Weve been thrilled with the support so far but were still looking for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack recipes for the charity cookbook. Wed love to hear from people whove got a great traditional, homemade recipe that theyd really like to see in print.



We want to find people who are passionate about enjoying food together whove got ideas for meals and dishes that families can easily prepare. The Air Ambulance is such a fantastic cause and we want to raise as much money as possible through putting together and selling this charity cookbook everyone can get involved and help us do this.



The Come Together, Eat Together campaign, launched by TV presenter Anthea Turner recently, is aimed at re-capturing enthusiasm for home cooking and enjoying eating together as a family. It comes after recent research found that almost half of families no longer ate together at least once a day.



As a mutual organisation at the heart of the South Wests rural community for more than 100 years, Cornish Mutual is proud to be supporting this campaign and helping to raise much-needed funds for the Air Ambulances continued work.
