Family Recipes

Food is a way to connect with family and community. Our recipe collection includes familiar favourites, along with recipes to save you time and money. These tried and tested meals suit all cooking levels and use minimal kitchen equipment. We have cooked and improved these recipes many times so they are tasty, healthy and make home cooking as convenient as possible.

These recipes work well for group cooking classes and can be increased for large community events.

The cost of each recipe is based on how much you need to buy all ingredients from scratch, making it cheaper if you already have items in your cupboard. Prices are based on South East Queensland supermarket prices (current as of February 2020).
