Big helping of kindness
PRESBYTERIAN Ladies’ College student Emily Johnson has produced a cookbook fit for any master chef’s kitchen.
Emily designed the cookbook Around Our Table as part of her Year 10 personal project, with all money raised going to the Ability Centre to purchase equipment for children with cerebral palsy.
With help from family and friends, Emily collected a long list of recipes, tested each one, photographed every dish and laid out the book.
Emily said her project was a natural choice, as she loved cooking and wanted to make a difference to children with cerebral palsy by helping a charity she respected.
“This project gives me the opportunity to share my love of cooking and spending time with friends and family, while raising money to help make life a little bit easier for a child with cerebral palsy and their family,” she said. “All the recipes that I have used in the book are family favourites, recipes from family and friends that we cook again and again.
“There are some recipes that are originally from well-known chefs and in the process I have sought permission from them to reprint their recipes and amazingly, they all generously agreed to allow me to reprint their recipes.”
Emily said she hoped to raise between $3000 and $4000, which would provide one large piece of equipment and two smaller pieces of equipment for a family.
