Some thoughts about Local: recipes and stories from Sydney’s Inner West

Local: recipes and stories from Sydney’s Inner WestLocal: recipes and stories from Sydney’s Inner West by Stanmore Public School P&C
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a lovely book from Stanmore Public School.

It has information about the kitchen garden, and the kitchen at the school as well as short suburb histories and statistics for the Marrickville area, and includes photographs of the school.

It also has recipes, and these have photographs accompanying them. The recipes are provided by parents, locals and teachers, and there is a rather lovely 'parents to...' listed for each recipe(other relationships such as mum, grandparent, local are also included). There are recipes from local business owners, and The Henson and Cornersmith are amongst those providing recipes.

This is a genre of books I really enjoy which are local studies meets recipes.

The recipes I have tried have all worked well, and there are many more recipes to explore.

It is published by Stanmore Public School P & C.

This is the first time I have added a record to Goodreads. It would not accept a book which did not have an author. Now I have added one book, there are a couple more I will have to add.

I was also really interested to find that this book was not listed on Trove.
