If it s a while since pay day and the cupboards are looking bare George Mann has a few recipes to get you through. The 89-year-old s Scottish breid and butter pudding is one of four recipes passed down through his family that are included in the Nostalgic Nosh cookbook. Compiled by Age Concern Auckland, the cookbook includes 162 family recipes from the organisation s clients and supporters. Mr Mann, an Age Concern client, says bread and butter pudding has been a staple in his diet. His mother made the pudding at a time when families were large and food was scarce. The Ranui resident grew up in Scotland and was one of 14 children. He says families of that size were common. I would walk a mile and a half home from school and all I would get was a piece of bread with margarine. He remembers his mother making the most of stale bread when he was young by softening it with milk then adding butter and raisins if they were lucky. It s still a favourite of mine. The book contains a mix of sweet and savoury treats and also includes recipes for home- made medicinal and cleaning products, such as glass and lin- oleum polish. Other old-time favourites in the book include an old English mint chutney, steamed ginger pudding and a rustic rhubarb and strawberry pie. Nostalgic Nosh is available from Age Concern Auckland for $10 plus $2 for postage. The proceeds from sales will go to the organisation. Call 820-0184 for more information. The Western Leader has a copy of Nostalgic Nosh to give away to a lucky reader. To go into the draw email edwl@snl. co.nz with your name, address and daytime phone number before 9am on Tuesday, November 9. Boaties briefing on crossing bars A Coastguard awareness day will educate boaties on how to make bar crossing a lot safer. Any boatie planning to cross the Manukau Har- bour this summer should attend the day on November 14. The event at the Coastguard Manukau base at French Bay, Titirangi, will help people understand how dangerous harbour bars can be. It will highlight how important it is for boaties to prepare care- fully before they go out. Coastguard president Peter van Rooyen says boats capsize easily on the Manukau Harbour bar because of unusually steep seas. Even very experi- enced boaties have got into trouble while cross- ing the bar which is why it s important that boaties are well- prepared before they go out on the water, he says. It pays to get good quality local information on when is the best time to cross and how. Boaties interested in attending need to pre- register and bring their boats to the boat ramp at French Bay on the day. A briefing on how to prepare for a bar cross- ing and what to look for when crossing the bar will kick off at noon. Visit www.coastguard. org.nz or phone 0508 RESCUE to register or for more information. Yates appointed as chair By VANITA PRASAD Denise Yates was made chairwoman of the Waitakere Ranges Lo- cal Board at its first meeting on Tuesday. The Huia resident is a former chairwoman of the Waitakere Com- munity Board and has served as a Waitakere City councillor. Janet Clews, a for- mer mayor of Glen Eden, was voted deputy chairwoman. The other members of the Waitakere Ran- ges Local Board are Neil Henderson, Judy Lawley, Mark Brickell and Greg Presland. Around 50 members of the public turned out for the meeting at Lopdell House. With only the location and date for the next meet- ing to be decided, most of the meeting involved signing in the board members and appoint- ing the chairperson and deputy chairperson. It was the first of Auckland s 21 newly created local to meet. New Lynn MP David Cunliffe, deputy mayor Penny Hulse and Wai- takere councillor San- dra Coney attended. The two councillors said they would try to attend west Auckland local board meetings when possible. Ms Yates said that would be a real advan- tage for them. It s still unclear about how the local boards will com- municate with the Auckland Council so having that genuine interest from Penny and Sandra will be ben- eficial for us.
