Family recipes

The National Literacy Trust and Bradford Council are asking families to write their favourite family recipe and submit it with a picture of the dish and details of why it is so special to them. The recipes can include meals that have been passed down through generations, or a new dish the family has created together. Judges will pick 50 winning recipes to be published in the cookbook later this year. To enter the competition, email it with a photo and a short description of why the family likes it to or bring it into reception before 8th June.
