Put together by Pam Wallace, Christine Schwick, Jill Powell and Bridget Long, the cookbook contains 116 unique recipes.

The money raised from the cookbooks will con-tribute towards the refurbishment of the village hall, which is the largest claybat building in the south of England.
Mrs Powell said: "We all wanted to help with the refurbishment of the village hall and thought that this would be a good way of raising funds.
"The village hall is an important part of the community and is a facility that is used by so many people."
The hall has been redeveloped with a number of new amenities including new facilities for disabled people and a modernised larger hall.
The launch of Flavours of Ashwell will take place when MP Oliver Heald will formally re-open the hall.
- A food fair will also be running at the village hall from 11am-4pm.
