A-Deli Hand-Picked Recipes blog

Over the past year and a half, our College nurse Ms Adele Cutbush has been making creative use of her spare time by creating a recipe blog, so that others can enjoy some delicious home-cooked meals. Due to the lockdown, she has finally launched it, and hopes the Waverley community might be interested in having a look. Her mission is to add a new recipe every week. From flavoursome Corn and Zucchini Fritters to nutritious Toddlers’ Cottage Pie, there really is something for everyone. Happy cooking (and feasting)!
