Cook, Care & Share with Kate

July 20 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

This month’s recipe for our Cook, Care & Share project is Strawberry Cream Puffs (well, it is Wimbledon month!). All the ingredients you need are listed below.

In our demo video, local chef Kate talks you through all the steps, including making your own puff pastry from scratch – though shop-bought is fine too.

[If you enjoy this Cook, Care & Share demo maybe you’d considered making a donation to support our Time for Me Fund Appeal? Text SUPPORTCARERS to 70450 to donate £2. Texts cost £2 plus one standard rate message.]

Next month, we’ll be making something orange and delicious as 20th August is International Orangutan Day. Check out what’s in store for August.
