Sunshine bars, by Miss Katie Green

Drum roll please.......
It gives me IMMENSE pleasure to introduce the Keston Kitchen's first Guest Chef, Miss Katie Green!

Chef Biog: I have been fortunate enough to know Katie since primary school and have watched her develop over the years into a fine and competent chef. As well as creativity in the Kitchen, Katie is an a fantastic knitter, and has produced many beautiful wool products.
Katie specialises in vegan coking, in particular, no-one could forget her amazing butternut squash and filo pastry tart. She is also renowned for her baking, and regularly delights friends by turning up to social occasions armed with a tupperware full of sweet treats.

I am delighted to welcome Katie as our first Guest Chef. We would like this to become a regular spot on The Keston Kitchen, so if you are a budding chef and want to share your favourite recipes, please get in touch.

Put the sugar, syrup and butter in a small pan and heat gently,

to bind and there are no dry patches.
