Calling All Cooks!

As a fundraiser for Mòd nan Eilean Siar 2011, the Ladies Committee are currently preparing to put together a Mod Cookbook.  As a result, they would appreciate any recipes that are favourites – home baking perhaps being a Mòd speciality!  All recipes will be gratefully received; starters, mains, puddings as well as baking and so on.

The Ladies Committee would appreciate receiving all submissions by the end of June.  Recipes can be e-mailed to Moira Maclean or Christine Morrison at the following e-mail addresses:
