Well now they’re extending the scheme to include a new downloadable cookbook.
For every cookbook downloaded Tilda donates a meal to a pregnant Bangladeshi mum. Low birth weight can seriously affect babies’ physical and cognitive development. The donated meals helps to keep mums and their unborn children healthy – and gets them the best start in life.
Last year Tilda donated over 305,000 nourishing meals and this year wants to help thousands more mums.
The recipes in the cookbook come from celebs such as Aggie MacKenzie, Alison Hammond and many more, plus a few bloggers too.
As you’d expect many of the recipes in the collection feature rice, like a really easy Pilaf and a wonderful looking Nasi Goreng Malaysian Fried Rice, but there are plenty of other family-friendly staples like Fish Pie and Bread and Butter Pudding.
So is the book any good? Well I’ve checked it out for you…
Who is it for?
Mums with a heart who want to get their hands on great family recipes, but also help out fellow mums in Bangladesh by giving them a nourishing meal just by downloading the book!
Easy to follow
It’s simply laid out with unfussy but appealing recipes. There are three sections split into recipes from celebrities, food bloggers and Tilda – I would have been tempted to section them off into meal types to make it a little more user friendly, but as there’s a list of contents at the beginning you hardly get lost.
Family-friendly recipes aren’t always the best looking, but the food styling and photography here are top notch, resulting in beautifully inviting images to tempt you into each recipe.
Most likely to cook
Jo Pratt’s Easy Tray Bake Chicken is simple to put together, packed full of delicious flavours and I love her suggestion of combining any leftovers with chicken stock to make a tasty soup.
The Funny Faced Frittatas are a great meal idea for feeding little ones – they look fun, have a good amount of vegetables in and even some rice which is an ingredient i’d not thought of adding before. I love the fact that they are cooked in muffin tins, creating the perfect bite-size portions that would not only serve well in packed lunches but also as party canapes.
Would you buy it for a friend?
Well no because it’s FREE – but i’m going to tell all my friends to download it!
