Fundraising Recipe Book released late June
We are nearing the end of a huge combined effort in producing a recipe book, titled "FEED – Its game on in the kitchen".
The book is a collection of delicious recipes from our netball community and sponsors. Led by Chef extraordinaire Grant Kitchen, who is the General Manager of the Empire Hotel, we will have what we consider to be a very professionally designed high quality Recipe Book which we expect will have a very long shelf life.
Included in the book will be a celebration dinner prepared by MasterChef winner, Brett McGregor, along with recipes from well-known netball personalities. Many from our netball community will also be delighted to discover the recipe for Russian fudge which has been famously fought over by Casey Williams, Jolene Henry and Temepara George!
We have an absolute new appreciation of the production of recipe books. The precision of the photography, the design and styling of the place setting, the actual plates, the props, the back ground, the lighting, and that’s all before the food is prepared and plated for the actual shoot. One flan recipe took 45 minutes to get the perfect shot! So with almost 100 recipes photographed, you can imagine the detail that went into planning and the time taken to ensure each shot was true to the essence of the recipe while capturing its stunning presentation.
We have been extremely fortunate to have the newly transformed Empire Hotel as the backdrop for most of the food preparation and the photography. The Empire is a beautiful lady that has come back to life and definitely worth a visit. The food and ambiance is terrific and highly recommended.
The committee is a dedicated group of volunteers who are all professionals giving their time freely to the netball community at Netball North Harbour, along with a core group of Netball North Harbour staff.
A special acknowledgment to Benefitz who will be printing our book. This local company is without doubt the North Shore’s most visible supporter of almost every sport, school and event on the North Shore. Netball is very fortunate to have Aidan, Dallas and their team as one of our community sponsors.
Thanks to such a passionate and professional group on the committee our first print run for “FEED – Its game on in the kitchen “ will see 4000 books go on sale in late June
We hope that this Recipe Book will be a highly successful fundraiser for Netball North Harbour. Funds raised will go toward the maintenance and upgrade of the Netball North Harbour complex for all our netball community to enjoy.
– Lynette Brady, Director of Netball & Operations
