Restaurants and Chefs in Lyme Regis and Axminster have donated some of their best recipes to support a local charity.

Due to the Covid lock down restrictions, Axminster and Lyme Cancer Support had to cancel all planned in-person fund raising events for 2020.

It has now published a cookbook with a difference. Recipes with Love, is the first community cookbook published by Axminster and Lyme Cancer Support.

It draws together a collection of the most-loved recipes from chefs, popular restaurants and supporters of the charity. Some of those contributing include Tierra Kitchen, Monmouth Pantry and The Galley Café of Lyme Regis amongst many others.

Mary Kahn, founder of the charity said: “This book has been brought together quickly and I’d like to thank the many people and businesses that have contributed to its production. When the first lockdown started, we wanted a project that would bring our community together and help with our fundraising efforts.”

Mary added: “Every recipe was tried and tested, with our kitchens resembling the Bake-Off tent at times. As a charity, our aim is to support anyone affected by any cancer, in our area. The profits from the sale of the book help to continue our needed work and services in the Axminster and Lyme areas.”

Recipes with Love has 39 recipes split into two sections, savoury and sweet. Each one with some notes on the origin of the recipe or additional information and simple to follow guides with refreshing and clear photography.
