Food & Kindness – The Sobell House Cook Book
Sobell House is a very special place, so Food and Kindness is a very special kind of cookbook. Published to raise awareness and funds for the hospice, it's also about recognising some of the local businesses in the food and drink industry that have supported Sobell House over the years, and have been badly affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
In the book you will find over 30 stories and recipes from a wide range of local chefs, restaurateurs, food writers and celebrities, many of whom hold Sobell House close to their heart. You’ll find a recipe for hummus from Stephen Fry; the perfect vegetable soup handed down to Mel Giedroyc by her mum; a tasty vegan lunch courtesy of Sue Perkins; and the star of BBC 3 mockumentary This Country, Paul Chahidi, who is an ambassador for Sobell House and proudly showcases his Mediterranean pork, lemon and parmesan meatball dish.
Alongside these famous supporters, plenty of Oxfordshire eateries have also got involved with the book, giving readers the chance to make some of their best-loved dishes at home and discover the stories behind each unique venture. Among these are waterside destination The Cherwell Boathouse with breaded halloumi and sweetcorn fritters; city-centre brasserie No. 1 Ship Street with French onion soup; and South Indian restaurant Bhoomi Kitchen with Keralan fried chicken.
Food and Kindness is all about bringing the local community together to celebrate the inspiring work and ethos of Sobell House who have been supporting the local community since 1976. Purchase a copy today and support your local hospice.
