‘Pass It on’ Paella.

Mrs Howard’s ‘paella vegetariana’ originates from Valencia, however the Spanish usually add pork, rabbit, chicken or seafood to the dish. She showed is how the rice is traditionally added to the pan in the shape of a cross before being mixed in with the other ingredients. Paella for breakfast on a sunny morning. What could be better?

COOP-Fairtrade Cappuccino Cup cakes- Pass It On!

Lucy, from our local Nursery Lane COOP, demonstrated the COOP recipe for Cappuccino cup cakes.

Using all Fairtrade ingredients provided by our local store!

Some people just couldn’t wait for these delicious cakes to cool!

Fresh out of the oven.

Some of our regulars helped with the icing.

The cakes were light and fluffy.

And easier to ice once cooled.

But enjoyed by everyone!

Just like the picture in February’s COOP magazine.

A huge thank you to our Nursery Lane COOP, for lending us one of there colleagues to demonstrate at our ‘Pass It on’ Cafe! Our Fairtrade ambassadors will be baking some of these cup cakes for our ‘Friends’ Fairtrade Cafe on Friday 9th March. Hope to see you there.


Thank you to Martin, from Roundhay Bakehouse, for another great ‘pass it on’! Financiers are delicious little French little cakes, lovely with a tea or coffee!

We had a few new people this week. Why not join us to watch a demonstration and have a chat with a coffee, and of course sample whatever has been cooked or baked!
