blog post

A recipe book has been launched to mark the fifth wedding of the tea room at Marwood Hill Gardens near Barnstaple.

Called Tea Room Treats, it features favourite recipes coming from the staff and volunteers who work at Marwood mountain, along among delicate hand-drawn illustrations.

All the muffins shown in the meal reserve are cooked on site at the Garden teas home, using ingredients included locally.

Patricia Stout, property manager at Marwood Hill, said: "We got together all the that the volunteers and staff and had a big testing session of most of the cakes manufactured by our fabulous cook, Debbie Broome.

"We each chose our personal favourite and these come with become added in in our specific recipe book.

"Also the actual recipes, we have added some wonderful old black color and white photographs of our staff and volunteers when they were offspring, that happen to be rather charming.

"This little recipe book maintains one very friendly and personal feel which we hope reflects the nature of the gardens and the way consumers are managed."

As perfectly as celebrating the special anniversary this girl said the book was "a celebration of the commitment of everyone" involved at Marwood Hill Gardens.

"We are like one top family, and we love making our friends at the gardens and tea room feel completely welcome," she said.

"While we opened up your garden Tea space five years ago this has been a huge success.

"Debbie's cooking skills become superb, and everything she makes is absolutely delicious.

"We is often asked for the recipes of the cakes, therefore we thought it is perhaps time to put a few of them down written down. Our visitors often like in order to purchase a cake from us when that leave - our Christmas cakes are always very popular - but we understand just that some everyone is also excited to try making our recipes themselves. Now they can."
