A RECIPE project is giving people the chance to get involved in this year’s Weston Super Food Festival and have their favourite meals featured in a booklet.

It is one of the community projects planned for the Mercury-supported event to be held in Weston on September 27-29.

The festival is in its second year and attracted thousands of people to the town to visit the stalls, marquees and demonstrations.

Mercury readers are being invited to contribute to the project by submitting their favourite recipes, and the best ones will be featured in a booklet to be distributed during the festival.

The Blitz Tearoom, based in Waterloo Street, has teamed up with festival organisers to sponsor the project.

Festival organiser Sally Packer said: “The idea behind the project is to pass on recipes and ideas that will be useful to people struggling to cook healthy family meals on a tight budget.

“Last year several of Weston’s older residents contributed war-time and post-war recipes, and this year we want to widen and expand the project to include present day recipes as well as those from the past.

“With its 1940s theme and austerity memorabilia The Blitz Tearoom is a perfect partner for the project so we are delighted to have their support.”

The Blitz Tearoom is collecting the tips and recipes, which can be typed or handwritten, and should include instructions and ingredients. Your name should be included if you would like it in the booklet.

Alternatively, they can be emailed to
