THE Flora Cookbook judging process has finally begun.
A huge thank you to everyone who submitted a favourite family recipe for our new Flora Cookbook.
We had a fantastic response to the campaign and received a wonderful mix of recipes: – soups, breads, main meals and lots and lots of desserts – we clearly all love a little something sweet.
OUR CAMPAIGN AMBASSADOR, MASTERCHEF'S NICHA MAGUIRE (RIGHT) AND FLORA DIETICIAN HARRIETTE LYNCH ARE NOW STRUGGLING TO NARROW IT DOWN TO THE FINAL 12 RECIPES WHICH WILL FEATURE IN OUR NEW COOKBOOK. THOSE 12 RECIPES WILL BE TWEAKED SLIGHTLY TO MAKE THEM EVEN MORE NUTRITIOUS BY, FOR EXAMPLE, REDUCING THE SALT AND FAT CONTENT.
WE WILL BE ANNOUNCING THE 12 WINNING RECIPES IN THE COMING WEEKS AND THOSE LUCKY LADIES WILL BE INVITED TO JOIN US AS VIP GUESTS ON RACE DAY AS WELL AS RECEIVING &EURO;250 TO THANK THEM FOR THEIR RECIPES.
The Flora Cookbook – recipes for the heart you love – will be available to download from the Flora Women's Mini Marathon Facebook page in mid July and the Flora Cookbook Roadshow will be travelling the country later in the year to showcase the delicious recipes to you. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for further information and dates.
Huge thanks also to Maguire who has inspired lots of you to get more creative in the kitchen with her heart-healthy recipes over the past few months.
