Students release cookbook

Jessica Gosling and Alannah Mouat have released a cookbook designed especially for students.

Two Cambridge girls have put their passion for sport and food to paper with the release of their own cookbook, highlighting their ideal easy foods for physical activity and mental balance.

The book, “To Fuel an Adventure”, is based on the go-to foods that Jessica Gosling and Alannah Mouat eat for exercise, convenience or comfort, described as “Perfect for school and Uni-aged students,” by co-author Jess. “Recipes are simple and easy to understand, and may just keep students off those tragic two-minute noodle diets!

“It’s not exclusive to teenagers… they’re quick, easy recipes that are still quite healthy.”

The girls came up with the concept for the book in Term 1, during their final year at Cambridge High School, and were working on it up until its release in October.

The 17-year-olds said they had a lot of fun making the book, which started out as a fundraiser to help cover the cost of adventure racing in the annual Coast to Coast event this year. “Unfortunately, we had to pull out of it because I injured myself and Alannah’s now focusing on lacrosse, but definitely in future we will be doing it,” said Jess.

Their all-round favourites from the book were the brown rice salad, the tomato pasta, the blackberry and lime meringue pie, and the chocolate mint “freak” shake.

The book is available now at Paper Plus Cambridge.
