Educational Developers Cookbook | rowellc

When my children were small quite often I’d be asked to contribute a family recipe to a book which would be collated by the parents’ association, and sold to raise funds for the school. As my children are all grown up but not grown up enough to provide me with grandchildren I was reflecting on this in the run up to Christmas feeling somewhat nostalgic for that time. It suddenly occurred to me that we could do something similar for our own community.
