In 2014 the Friends of the University of Bristol Botanic Garden published a cookbook with recipes for some of the delicious cakes and biscuits which had been produced by volunteers for the staff and volunteers in the mess room during the early years of the Botanic Garden’s development at The Holmes. Some of the recipes have also been used by volunteers for our open gardens scheme to provide refreshments to visitors.
Whilst many of these recipes are still being enjoyed by those of us who purchased the book, it has been pointed out that many newcomers to the Friends and volunteers may not have had this chance.
We arranged for it to be reprinted early in 2020 and it was going to be available from the Botanic Garden at the Easter Sculpture Festival and thereafter at the Friends’ gardens opening during the summer. Unfortunately as we all know the pandemic stopped all events and we are now making this available through the University of Bristol online shop.
We do hope you enjoy trying out the recipes. All proceeds will go to the Friends’ Education and Training Fund.
Note: You will receive email confirmation of your purchase but as volunteer access to the Botanic Garden is currently limited there may be a slight delay. We will try to ensure this is posted within 2 weeks of your order being placed.
