Every copy of Timberscombe Cooks! sold out within one hour when the Village cookery book was launched last Saturday in the Village Hall. Fabulous village support meant that plenty of people came along to taste free nibbles and samples of food from recipes in the book, all provided by the volunteers who supplied the recipes which have an Exmoor twist. A terrific range of hot soups and starters were on offer, followed by meat and vegetarian main courses and local chutney. The puddings and cakes supplied were also an example of the huge range of talent in the village.
We are now looking into a reprint being available before Christmas for those who would still like to have a copy, or give a copy as a gift. If you would like to order any copies please let me, Gabrielle Horrobin, Joy Booth, Marion Moncrieff or Marion Jeffrey know. We are so grateful to all the lottery players who have made this unique book possible and we are putting a copy into the History Group archive as an example of what a community can achieve for future generations to look back on with interest. As an example of co-operation in our community this has been a great example of working together and having fun and enjoyment at the same time. Our thanks go to everyone who has made Timberscombe Cooks! Book such a success.’
