A local childcare centre in the Southern Highlands created a cookbook made of delicious family recipes. Proceeds from each cookbook sold was donated back to OzHarvest. Check out one of the recipes below for Chocolate Semolina from the Czech Republic.
Warm Cuddle Chocolate Semolina
This recipe has been handed down three generations so far on Wayne’s Czech Republic side. It’s important to us because back when our grandparents were growing they had many hard challenges compared to what our kids have now. They had to deal with World War II and the great depression, and food, money and warmth was hard to come by. In the back country (Czech) it snowed and was cold. Wayne’s grandfather to this day always tells us how you cannot give your children enough cuddles. You never know when the last cuddle may be and this dish reminds us of a Warm Cuddle.
