Lick LIPS launch

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

A Taste of the Low I sles was put to­gether by LIPS and con­tains a de­tailed his­tory of Low Isles with a com­po­nent of de­li­cious food recipes from LIPS mem­bers.

With 46 scrump­tious recipes that have all been tried and tested, there is sure to be some­thing for ev­ery­one.

The free book launch will be held at the Cen­tral Ho­tel on Thurs­day, May 9, from 7pm to 10pm and any­one is wel­come to at­tend.

LIPS mem­bers Nancy and Keith Bev­ing­ton and Louise Orchard put in al­most five months of full- time solid work into cook­ing the recipes, pro­duc­ing, edit­ing, re­touch­ing and de­sign­ing the book.

Kate Agrum took all the beau­ti­ful food pho­tos for the pub­li­ca­tion and the rest of the pho­to­graphs were from lo­cal peo­ple or LIPS mem­bers.

LIPS sec­re­tary Louise Orchard said there has been alot of hard work put into the cre­ation of the book.

‘‘The mem­bers have given us the recipes and put in so much hard work to cre­ate this book,’’ she said.

‘‘The book will be on sale at the launch for $39.95 and all the money raised will go back to the is­land.

‘‘ The first pro­ject is to re­de­velop the mu­seum on the is­land.

‘‘There are 180 peo­ple com­ing so far but we have room for up to 400 peo­ple.

‘‘ There will be amaz­ing door prizes, a guest speaker, slide shows, a free drink on ar­rival and nib­bles through­out the night.’’
