Avery supports 100 years of the Royal British Legion

As a part of the Royal British Legion’s Centenary, the Cooking With Heroes: The Royal British Legion Centenary Cookbook has recently launched, highlighting the contribution made by the Royal British Legion and by the British Armed Forces over the last 100 years.  Avery’s ‘Taking care with your food’ article can be found on page 114.

The book is written by serving military personnel and veterans to mark the centenary by celebrating 100 regions in which the RBL has operated – from Antrim to Australia, Guyana to Glasgow, Swansea to Singapore. Each region is represented by an authentic and delicious recipe particular to that part of the world, as well as a profile of a regional hero whose valour, conduct and commitment deserves to be remembered.

In honour of the cookbook release, Avery Healthcare is offering residents, relatives and chefs the chance to win one of the books by recalling their favourite childhood food memories. To enter, participants must send their stories/recipes to marketing@averyhealthcare.co.uk by 31st October 2021, with the winners to be announced the following week.
