The Women's Cookery Collective

The Women’s Cookery Collective was Est. in 1999. The Collective began life, like so many other things, in a very small way. 4 women, in their late 60’s, early 70’s, were excellent cooks and had been cooking for most of their life. They were grannies and wanted to earn extra cash either for their families or to save up for a trip to Mecca. They approached Julia and she agreed to market the Collective and put events together. Since 1999 it has grown and provides extra money and skills for women from the community.
