The book is unusual in the fact that it will combine recipes from professional chefs based on the Island; local personalities; people in the food trade, as well as Island residents/home-cooks. Dishes will range from sweet to savoury, plus some local specialities
Editor of Taste of the Wight, Lindsay Becker commented “We are really excited to already have recipes from Rob & Josie Da’ Bank; Bluebells Cafe, The Tomato Stall and more. We are now looking for recipes from home cook’s, so if you have a passion for local food and are a whizz in the kitchen then we want to hear from you!
Maybe you have created your own chutney or a garlic infused dish, or have been passed down your Grandma’s apple pie recipe; so please share it with us”
Youth Trust Director, Eileen Monks OBE explains, “Bite the Wight is one of the many events that the IW Youth Trust put on over the year. The aim is to bring the community together over food. Taste of the Wight are really capturing that spirit in their Island Recipe Book which will bring the Island’s amazing produce into people’s homes”.
Recipes will need to be submitted by January 29th 2016 to be considered. These can range from easy five minute meals to an elaborate dinner party; from savouries to sweet puddings. The Island is your oyster!
