We are now selling our recipe book ‘Eat well feel great: colourful and delicious meals and snacks for one or two’ for just £5.00 (plus P+P where needed) with all proceeds going to support the charity’s services for older people in County Durham.
Older people asked us to inspire and motivate them to try new dishes and make meals more interesting and varied. This led us to produce this publication packed full of colourful and delicious recipes for one or two people.
Our collection features traditional favourite dishes which have been given a modern and healthy twist inspired by Mediterranean cuisine. In addition a wide range of fresh new recipes introduce people to delicious snacks and meal ideas that are quick and easy to make. More than half the recipes are suitable for vegetarians. There are suggestions for the use of alternative ingredients to ensure that dishes can be interesting and varied.
- Smoked mackerel paté
- Baked fish and chips
- Sardinian stew
- Tuna nicoise salad
- Roasted vegetable tagine with couscous
- Chicken, spinach and potato frittata
- Spice roasted fruits with honey and orange sauce
With a spiral binding that allows the book to lay flat, large colour photos of each recipe and easy to read text ‘Eat well feel great’ is perfect for those who want recipes for one or two people.
We are thrilled that Simon King (Hairy Bikers) supports our work and our recipe book. He said “Come Eat Together is an absolutely brilliant project bringing older people together to enjoy good food and good company. Sometimes it’s hard to get motivated to cook different tasty meals when you live on your own, this recipe book has loads of tasty creative healthy food to get your taste buds going!! I really hope you all enjoy making the dishes in the book, go on why don’t you give them a go! Keep up the fantastic work Age UK County Durham!”
We even cooked some food on the radio when we were interviewed by BBC Radio Tees
Harriet Gibbon, Chief Executive of Age UK County Durham said
