Galloway author Muriel Palmer has published another book for charity called The Creetown Cookbook.
this time the charity concerned is the Creetown Heritage Museum Trust and all profits from the sale of the cookbook are to be donated to the museum. What started as a one-off has almost become an annual event. In fact this year there have been two books – this one - and one that she published in the spring, called ‘Icons of the Passion’.
The book was printed by J&B Print, Newton Stewart and is available from several outlets in the county as well as from the Museum. These outlets are the Gem Rock Museum, Creetown; the Visitor Information Centre, Mill on the Fleet, Gatehouse of Fleet; The Stables Tearoom, Palnure; Galloway Smokehouse, Carsluith; Marrbury Smokehouse, Carsluith and ReadingLasses, Wigtown. In addition the cookbook can be ordered direct from Muriel – 01671 820659.
The wire-bound book contains over 100 recipes including soup and starters; main courses; puddings and desserts, baking and preserves. There are plenty of comments on the sources and providers of the recipes.
It includes over 15 original and delightful illustrations by Angela Hurrell who runs the Garrocher Market Garden. The cookbook will be available for sale from Angela’s fruit and vegetable stall in both Creetown and Wigtown.
There is to be a official book launch on Sunday, August 21 at the Creetown Heritage Museum between 4.30pm—5.30pm. All are welcome and light refreshments will be served.
