Freedom Favourites recipe book also has handy hints, poems

THE CWA has long been synonymous with recipe books filled with delectable delights, so who better to launch Freedom Aged Care's latest offering than Frances Tilly, a 50-year member of the Queensland Country Women's Association?

Entitled Freedom Favourites, the recipe book boasts handy hints, poems, ditties, great art work, and naturally, recipes, contributed by residents, friends and staff of Freedom's Toowoomba locations.

As the preface notes, the book is all about, "Happy experiences, rituals and memories from food lovingly prepared and shared."

The recipes are wide and varied ranging from fruit sponge and all in chocolate cake, to more savoury offerings like cheese puffs, quick oyster chicken and Spanish beef.

The handy hints are very handy indeed!

Need to remove the smell of onion from your hands?

Try rubbing them with a stick of celery.

Need to know if an egg is fresh? Look for a rough surface, especially at the narrow end.

Proceeds from the sale of the book go towards Freedom's Diversional Therapy Fund.

If you would like to purchase a copy - $10 per book - please contact Jan on 0409 451 343.
