Three women who share a passion for promoting the wealth of produce in their home county are set to cook up thousands of pounds for a good cause.

Food champions Mary Kemp, Melinda Raker and Vanessa Scott will release their cookbook, Norfolk’s Own Cook Book: Everything Stops for Tea, on June 18.

The authors highlight the myriad edible gifts of the orchard, vineyard, hedgerow, sea, land and sky in the 192-page full-colour book.

Focusing not just on the niceties of afternoon tea but also the old-fashioned joys of high tea, it is full of sweet and savoury goodies and a selection of beverages too.

Every penny of the £20 retail price will go to Marie Curie which provides care and support for people living with a terminal illness and their families.

Top chefs, including Galton Blackiston, Chris Coubrough, Richard Hughes and Roger Hickman, share the recipe platform with the Lord Bishop of Norwich, Anthony Gormley, Stella Rimington, 13-year-old baking competition winner Mermaid Sandelson and 103-year-old home baker Alice Syzling who was in service for many years.

The 80-recipe book includes details for how to bake apple crumble cake, honey cake, Cromer crab, rocket 
and ricotta tart and Norfolk ale fruit loaf.

Norfolk chef and supporter Delia Smith said: “Everyone should own a copy of this very beautiful cookery book, and know that each time they cook and serve one of the excellent recipes therein they are giving support to the vital care that Marie Curie provides for the people of Norfolk.”
