Cookbook represents diversity of community

RECIPES from around the world make up the community cookbook that celebrates the 30th anniversary of the East Creek Community Centre.

Centre members of all ages and cultures have contributed to the 80-page book, which Older Persons Action Program co-ordinator Bea Kraessig said are all delectable.

"There is a section From Around the World because we have a lot of people from overseas who live here," Ms Kraessig said.

The recipes cover everything from nibbles and entrees through to desserts.

"We can't miss out on the desserts!" she said.

The book really represents the diversity of the Toowoomba community.

"We have Asians, Middle-Eastern, North Americans and Europeans," Ms Kraessig said.

"Plus plenty of Aussies."

"And, of course Swiss - my own."

Her favourite recipe is anything with chocolate in it. "I got weaned on chocolate," she added.

It's a substantial A4-size book with easy-reading large font that is easy to read and several photos.

The cost is $12, with the proceeds going to the East Creek Community Centre.

To secure a copy, contact the centre on 4639 2755 or email info@eastcreek.com.au.
