DELICACIES devoured by hungry boys at St Joseph’s College, Gregory Terrace, are available for public tasting in a new cookbook produced by the Terrace Ladies Group.
Terrace mums, dads and grandparents donated their best family recipes for The Terrace Cookbook, in honour of the school’s 140th anniversary this year.
Members of the TLG gathered at the Terrace sports facilities at Tennyson for the official launch with special guest celebrity chef Alastair McLeod on March 27.
TLG president and mother of four Andrea Splatt has put three boys through Terrace.
Mrs Splatt believes eating good-quality food as a family is the secret ingredient to mothering success.
“Meal times is one of the few times families can sit down and talk to each other, to enjoy each other’s company,” she said.
“Regardless of how formal or informal the occasion, the rituals of meal times create a strong foundation for a real sense of family, which is also an important touchstone of Terrace.
“It is said that our sons enter the gates of Terrace as boys and leave as Terrace gentlemen, and it is the extraordinary connection and collaboration between school and home that nourishes and nurtures this transition to a true Terracian.”
While readers can drool over hundreds of timeless family recipes, the 336-page cookbook also includes flashbacks to life at Terrace over the past 140 years.
