The title 'Come and Eat' comes from the Bible - John chapter 21 verse 12. This book is based on one originally put together in celebration of the centenary, in 1997, of Mackintosh Evangelical Church, Mackintosh Place, Roath, Cardiff, Wales, UK. It was to foster the tradition of entertaining and in recognition that many a lasting friendship and good conversation begins over a meal. Church members and others who had experienced Mack hospitality at some time were asked if they would like to contribute some favorite recipes to a simple ‘cook-book’. The response was great with recipes coming from far and wide.
For this eBook other recipes have been added and some removed and recipes now have metric measurements although some Imperial units have been also retained for those who are more familiar with UK cooking. For common abbreviations e.g. tsp, dsp etc. and conversions see the tables at the end of this book.
There are recipes to suit all tastes and pockets, from the simple to the elaborate, from the well tried to the rashly ‘experimental’. Many of the recipes are simple and easy to cook using ready prepared tinned ingredients or frozen pastry and you can experiment and change ingredients somewhat, don't be afraid to try something new. We have not tried all of the recipes personally so make them up at your own risk!
You’ve got the recipes, now follow His example and invite someone to come and eat.
