MEMBERS of a vegetarian cooking club in Weston were given some recipe ideas from an exciting up-and-coming expert chef.

Martin Conway has been shortlisted in Cossey Produce’s Search For A Chef competition, and hosted a demonstration for 30 members of the Eating Better, Paying Less club

Club co-ordinator Wayne Erasmus said members – who meet fortnightly at the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Worle – were impressed by Martin’s skills.

He said: “We regularly hold talks on healthy living and demonstrations on how to prepare vegetarian meals for our members.

“Martin cooked a spinach and feta strudel with a roasted vegetable cous cous, which we all enjoyed.”
