“There are sections for starters, main courses, puddings, cakes and biscuits, bits and bobs and top tips.”

The books are for sale from local foodies, pubs and restaurants as well as plus Taste of the Country, Mrs Brown’s Tea Rooms, Ivy Heart, Richard Harvey, Talton Mill, Paddock Farm, Brailes, Meg Rivers Café, Lapstones and The Natural Health Clinic.
