A big thank you to everyone who took part in our daily recipe challenges last term – we really enjoyed seeing your photos and hope you enjoyed taking part.
To change things around a bit, this half term we’d love it if you could share your recipes with us!
Do you have a recipe that you love making and eating at home?
If so, please send it to us via email to rhiannon.butlin@stchris.co.uk.
It can be for a starter, a main, a pudding, a snack or something baked – the only proviso is that it needs to be vegetarian please. We’ll share your recipes with the St Chris community and, if we get enough we may even look at making a cookbook!
Please do try the recipes out and let us know how you get on so we know which ones are doubly rated and approved!
Here’s the first recipe and it’s by our Head Richard:
