WI Team Member Ann is not known for her cooking but has recently found she has enjoyed trying out recipes from Dr Micheal Mosley's books. This is one of them...
With this creamy fish dish a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc would be perfect but for a special occasion why not upgrade to a Sancerre one of the most beautiful wines from the Loire Valley? Our editor always says Merlot goes with anything and indeed it would match this dish very nicely, if red is your tipple! 🍷
Kate is a long standing member of Baslow WI and a former WI President. She is a keen baker and supports Baslow WI in many different ways. This is a recipe that she has been using for many years it has been enjoyed by her family and WI members on many special occasions. Thanks Kate!
Cath is a member of Baslow WI, a great cook who often volunteers to help in the kitchen at Baslow WI meetings. Cath hosted a fantastic fund raiser at her home on the edge of Baslow Village supported by many members and friends. This recipe for a side dish is perfect at this time of year when courgettes are in season but would be perfect at any time of year as they are readily available in the shops all year around.

Our editor loves a nice piece of carrot cake and this one would be perfect as a mid-morning snack with a great cup of strong coffee such as a Mountain blend from Northern Tea Merchants, Chesterfield. If served as a sweet course at the end of a delicious meal a drop of French Cognac would go down well too! ☕️

This highly recommended fruit loaf recipe comes from Christine Thompson.

These scones would be amazing as part of a very special tea. Our Editor would recommend either Earl Grey or Rwanda tea (perfect from Northern Tea Merchants, Chesterfield) in your cup and if you are really celebrating how about adding a touch of fizz in your glass? - To keep things a bit more 'British' try a Chapel Down from Tenterden, Kent. Delicious! 🇬🇧
