Big help­ing of kind­ness

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.
