Local foodie Libby West shares a recipe

By April 27, 2009No Comments

F.O.O.D. Week is over for another year but recipes live on. Here is the first of our Books on the Menu local foodies with a favourite recipe to share. Libby West (pictured) is our own very own Lady Steptoe. She quietly goes about creating a wonderfully friendly atmosphere where guests and family feel incredibly welcome and warmed by her stunning food. Passionate about food and recipes she has also created fabulous feasts for the Friends of the Botanic Gardens. At Books on the Menu Libby spoke about discovering her mother's kitchen drawer stuffed full of small books and recipes. Her own collection of papers includes a personal rating system. Here is one that earns a ten out of ten:
