A charity cookbook compiled from the favourite recipes of the people of Epsom will be launched by celebrity chef Tony Tobin.

Tony Tobin, who has been in Ready Steady Cook since 1995, will be demonstrating some of the recipes sent in by locals.

The community cookbook, 'Recipe for Success', was created by the Ashley Centre to raise money for its chosen charities.

A spokeswoman for the Ashley Centre Said: “The Ashley Centre always supports a charity, and this year we have two – The Sunnybank Trust and the Epsom branch of Guide Dog Fundraising and Donations.

“We let them use the centre for fundraising, but we also wanted to do something to get the community involved.

“The lovely thing about the Ashley Centre is that it’s very community-minded and also has a lot of independent shops.

“They decided that a recipe book would be a very good idea because it doesn’t matter how old you are – you could be a five-year-old with a recipe for chocolate cornflake cakes or an older person with a family recipe – it’s very inclusive."

Young and old joined in with the collaboration, West Ewell Primary School even got children to send in recipes as part of a class project.

The Ashley Centre said they would like to thank everyone for sending in their favourite recipes for the book which is now being made.

Tony Tobin is currently helping staff go through the recipes to choose the ones that will be published.

Everyone who has their recipe chosen will receive a free copy and money from book sales will be donated to the charities.

The Recipe for Success book will be launched in The Ashley Centre on Saturday April 14, where you can watch Tony Tobin's cooking demonstrations.
