The Canowindra Pre-School Kindergarten Inc will receive a Cabonne Council Community Assistance Program Grant of $7,889.30 after it was confirmed at the last Council Meeting in April.
The grant money will go towards the production of a coffee table, display style cook book that tells a story along with each recipe.
The cook book will be put together by Pre-School employee Katie Kelly who has a lot of food knowledge and styling skills that will showcase recipes from the local community.
So if you have a favourite recipe and a story about who you used to cook it with or who it reminds you of the Pre-School would love to hear from you! Simply email your story and recipes to firstname.lastname@example.org the cook book should be ready by Christmas time.
