Recipes needed for Flora run cookbook

PARTICIPANTS in this year's Flora Mini-Marathon are being called on to share their favourite family recipes for a new Flora cookbook.

Flora has joined forces with Masterchef winner Nicha Maguire to help collate recipes for the new cookbook.

Details about the new cookbook comes 24 hours before registration for this year's Flora Mini Marathon, in association with the Herald, begins.

Participants are advised to register early as the 10k event, which this year takes place on Monday, June 3, regularly reaches maximum capacity well in advance of the closing date.

The new Flora cookbook is expected to attract thousands of entries – and will see Nicha work with Flora dietician Harriette Lynch to introduce small changes to recipes submitted to make them even more healthier. "I am delighted to be teaming up with Flora on this exciting project," Nicha said.


"As a busy mum, I know how important it is to have a stock of trusted recipes that all the family can enjoy.

"The Flora Women's Mini Marathon is a really special event and I can't wait to join forces with the other 40,000 women on the big day, raising much-need funds for charities."

Approximately 15 participants' recipes will be chosen for the Flora Cookbook.
