Celebrating Moss Vale and Bowral’s history never tasted so good with the launch of Council’s Sesquicentenary cookbook.

The Tastes of 2 Towns Cookbook celebrates Bowral and Moss Vale’s 150th anniversary with recipes from some of our Shire’s most celebrated Chefs.

The cookbook features 26 recipes from local chefs and provedores, including matching local wines and beers.

Amongst the inspirational meals – which all feature a unique Southern Highlands twist – readers will find historical photos and gems from our past.

Council’s Manager of Strategic and Assets, Mark Pepping said the cookbook was a collaborative effort.

“Similar to our 2013 Sesquicentenary Calendar, the cookbook would not have been possible without the assistance of our Bowral and Moss Vale Sesquicentenary Committees,” he said.

“Other contributors include local historians David Baxter and Leonie Knapman and the Berrima and District Historical and Family History Society Inc who helped us source the wonderful historical photos which are scattered throughout the book.”

“It almost goes without saying that we also owe a great deal of thanks to all the participating chefs, provedores, cafes and guests who lent their support to the project,” Mark added.

In time for Christmas, The Tastes of 2 Towns Cookbook will be available from December 3 at Council’s Moss Vale Civic Centre, the Mittagong Visitor Information Centre and selected newsagents and bookshops for just $19.95.
