Dear Parents


We would like to invite all of you to contribute to a cookbook we are putting together for Doris Venner pre-school. We welcome all recipes, from all cultures – they can be starters, main dishes, desserts etc! Lots of us have a favourite recipe that we turn to time and time again whether it is a family favourite or something you enjoy for special occasions. Perhaps it is a recipe passed down through generations, e.g. Granny’s Apple Pie. We would love you to share it with us. In addition, all the children are welcome to draw or paint a picture for the cookbook and Doris Venner Staff will choose a winner. This picture will go on the front cover of the cookbook. We will also acknowledge all recipes so everyone will get a mention. (see attached example). We can have up to 100 recipes in the book and you can send in up to two recipes – this will allow for duplications (we might get five shepherd pie recipes sent in for example). You can also add any comments about the recipe too e.g. ‘favourite recipe of Tommy Smith’ (see example)


Can we ask you to email your recipes in where possible rather than submit them in handwritten format, although we can accept these too. Email addresses are at the bottom. The recipes will fall under these categories:


·         Soups and Starters

·         Healthy Options

·         Main Meals

·         Baking

·         Desserts

·         Other (please specify)


As well as being a fun cookbook that we can all be involved in, we plan to sell the cookbook at special occasions and future events such as the Christmas Fair and Mother’s day next year. As you know, we are a charity and this will help us raise much needed funds for the pre-school to enable us to provide great days out for the children such as Birdworld and the children’s Christmas Party or equipment for the pre-school.


We look forward to receiving your recipes – the deadline is Friday 22nd  March

Thank you
