Local school publishes favourite lockdown recipes

City of Port Phillip
The family and friends of students at South Melbourne Park Primary School have put together their first cookbook, celebrating family-friendly recipes, lockdown favourites and healthy eating through the seasons.

‘Cooking through the Seasons’ commemorates the strength of the community during 2020. Recipes have been contributed by teachers, students, family and friends and leading local businesses and restaurants.

The school’s principal, Rosemary Cosentino, said that the cookbook is a great example of a community working together, and a unique and interesting fundraiser for the school. The cookbook is being sold for $30 to raise money to build a playground.

The cookbook is filled with tried-and-true family favourites across cultures and generations that you will return to again and again for daily cooking inspiration and special family celebrations. It encompasses shared values of diversity, commitment to healthy eating and the respect for seasonal produce and sourcing food locally.
