A NEW cook book full of recipes put together by Littlebury residents goes on sale in the village on Saturday.

Littlebury village hall committee has spent the last six months compiling Littlebury Cooks! in a bid to raise funds.

The book is a collection of over 120 recipes which have been submitted by the community and offers something for everyone, from a quick ‘Midweek Supper’ to a ‘Perfect Pudding’.

Local artist Lizzie Sanders created a digital painting especially for the cover of the book. A limited number of signed prints of the pictured will be available to purchase on a first come, first served basis.

“The book contains a wonderful variety of recipes and I hope those who purchase a copy will enjoy trying new dishes and maybe rediscovering some old favourites.
