Add recipes to the Lockdown Cookbook

We have been contacted by Jonathan, an artist working with SPUD in Sway (a community arts charity) on a project called The Lockdown Cookbook, which is a cookbook for, and by, the people of the New Forest, particularly Sway, Milford on sea & Lymington. 

Jonathan is looking to get in touch with members of the community who would be interested in contributing recipes to the cookbook, as well families and younger members of the community who would like to cook one of these recipes. 

The cookbook is inspired by his great-grandmother's handwritten cookbook, which was passed on to him, and contains all sorts of weird and wonderful recipes collected from the wireless, family, friends and - most intriguingly - strangers. It's a community cookbook written before, during and after the war. 


Nowadays, in a period of scrambling around for flour and eggs in the supermarket, Jonathan wants to create a culinary time capsule of a country kept indoors by the pandemic, and the food they ate. 

He is keen to reach as many people as possible in all generations, but especially older, more isolated people, who might not have Facebook, or email. 

To join in, or for more information about getting involved with the project can be found by clicking here.
