Many local families have spent their time in Coronavirus “lockdown” reacquainting themselves with their kitchens, and the Devonport City Council is keen to share the fruits of their labour.
As part of National Families Week, which begins on 15 May, Council is seeking favourite family recipes which will be included in a recipe book, which will be available to download from Council’s website for the whole community to enjoy.
Mayor, and chief judge, Annette Rockliff said there was no limit to the type of recipes eligible.
“It could be one that has been handed down through the generations, or it could be a yummy concoction you, as a family, have created in isolation.” she said
Cr Rockliff said prizes will be given to the top three recipes submitted by Thursday 21 May.
Recipes can be submitted to [email protected], online at https://www.devonport.tas.gov.au/live/your-community/community-services/community-recipe-book/ or they can be dropped off at the ground floor of the paranaple centre, the East Devonport Child and Family Centre and the Devonport Community House
Entrants are asked to indicate if they do not wish to be included in the recipe book.
“We would love a photo of families cooking up a storm to use with their entry,” Cr Rockliff said.
Winners to be announced on Wednesday 27 May.
Cr Rockliff said the pandemic – and the importance of physical distancing for ongoing community wellbeing – meant Council was celebrating National Families Week in a different way this year.
However, she said current circumstances highlighted the importance of the theme of National Families Week – Stronger Families, Stronger Communities – and the role families play by working together to support each other and provide care for those in the broader community.
