Charity cookbook raising funds for Alzheimer's Society

20th September 2018

A new cookbook raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Society includes a chocolate recipe ideal for Christmas menus in pubs and bars - Buffalo Trace Bourbon Truffles.

Author Jenny Arnot has produced the charity cookbook, called ‘Unforgettable Recipes’, with contributions from leading food and drink industry businesses including Buffalo Trace distributor Hi-Spirits,

Buffalo Trace Bourbon Truffles are ideal for festive buffets or as a treat at the end of a meal, served with coffee or a measure of award-winning Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

The cookbook features 46 recipes, including cocktails such as Southern Comfort with Lemonade & Fresh Lime, Southern Comfort Black & Cola, and Buffalo Trace and Ginger.

Jenny hopes to raise more than £25,000 by asking for donations for a copy of the cookbook. She said, “Having lost my mum to dementia back in January 2017, I felt I wanted to do something to help others like my mum get support for such a cruel and life changing illness.”
