Cookbook Initiative who were extremely helpful! Each book sold

It was all done online and was pretty easy - you just register,
then complete individual templates, with individuals able to upload
their recipes straight to the website. We asked each town to
produce 15 recipes, the only criteria was that the dish was a

printed by the beginning of December in time for Christmas.
We ordered 75 copies and sold out, making £187 profit. Our
French town ordered 300 and they're still selling!'
