Cooking corner

We have been given a 1996  cutting of an item on the Martinborough Collie Club’s Ladies’ Committee who were catering for the Collie Club’s centenary trials event held on Colin McLeod’s Hillside property.

Each of the ladies had given a favourite recipe for the article . These were varied covering every aspect of cooking from cakes to relishes. Including such tempting names as Chocolate Cinnamon Cake,  Sweet Gherkin Relish, Caramel Biscuits, Fruit Loaf, Snax Pudding and Bhami Noodles. 

It was very difficult to chose one for the Cooking Corner, however having a bit of a weakness for chocolate cake myself I have chosen  Yvonne Harvey’s Chocolate Cake for this month’s recipe. More will follow in later issues.
