Youngster’s Slestered Peenie cookbook ready

 A Young Enterprise company from Brae High School is ready to start distributing copies of its cookbook.

The Slestered Peenie Company compiled recipes and took orders at events including the Shetland Arts and Crafts fair.

Members of the local community contributed recipes and there is a foreword from Shetland’s Great British Bake Off contestant James Morton.

Jamie Oliver also donated a recipe for the ‘Peerie Book of Cook’. It is illustrated with graphics by talented group member Julie Dennison.

“We have learnt so much through this project and look forward to getting all the orders out to the public that has supported us so well. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped us throughout this process.”

Support came from the group’s link teacher, Shetland Area Board of Young Enterprise and business advisers.
