The Anglicare Diocese of Ballarat launched their new cookbook on Thursday with the hopes of raising funds for the Ballarat centre.
The 500-recipe cookbook was a collaboration between the Ballarat Diocese Anglicare Steering Committee, Ballarat parishes and Ballarat Grammar School
Ballarat Diocese Anglicare Steering Committee member and Ballarat Grammar School captain Matthew Hall said the cookbook became the perfect chance to bring the parishes together for a good cause.
“We started thinking about it two and a half years ago on the committee and thought not only would it be a good fundraiser but also good for getting people together from all parishes,” he said.
Ballarat Grammar School students were given the opportunity to design each segment of the new cookbook including the cover.
It was year 12 student Elizabeth Wilson who took out first place for every design.
Inspired by a food advertisement on television, Ms Wilson had a different take on the tradition cookbook design.
“I saw the competition and thought I should have a go,” she said.
“I thought it would be a good idea to have more of an art and a creative side to food.”
Six hundredcopies are currently available to purchase at the Ballarat Diocesan Centre and Anglicare Centre with funds raised going towards the Anglicare Diocese of Ballarat.
