Welcome Whitewater

It was a welcome relief on a blustery afternoon as we happily received the new release, Whitewater Cooks with Friends by Shelley Adams. For this, her third Whitewater cookbook, Shelley celebrates her mantra, 'great recipes are meant to be shared', bringing together a selection of recipes passed to her by her own food-loving friends. It's a lovely collection of recipes to enjoy with friends and family. Sticking with the winning format of  her other Whitewater books, there are excellent soups, salads, main dishes, and of course, desserts - all very homey and just right for sharing around the family table.

Drop by the shop and treat yourself to a copy of Whitewater Cooks with Friends - your own friends and family will thank you for the wonderful, cozy meals you will share with them this fall.
