We published a cookbook from the shared recipes, adding some wonderful illustrations from Deborah Caulfield. We did a hard copy because we realised for many deaf and disabled and older people, they missed out on digital resources as they do not have access – for a variety of reasons. However, there are QR codes linked in the book for further information and resources.
This is funded by Greenwich Council so if you would like a copy and you are in #RBG send us an email at email@example.com
