This came up in a Facebook thread - what would you include in a Chalet School Recipe Book? I know there's the Cook Book, but none of those recipes really relate to food actually mentioned in the books. Karen's raspberry fluff and potato balls, Anna's lemon biscuits, Frau Marani snr's honey and nut biscuits ... what else :D ? If drinks are included, Karen's lemonade and Mlle's coffee!

Fond as I am of The Chalet Girls' Cook Book, I'm not entirely sure it relates that much to real life, even then!

We'd surely better have Karen's recipe for Pflanzenwurst, since they're said to be fiddly to make but delicious. The vegetable stew, too - I would suspect it likely to be more popular now than the everlasting roast veal. And the miraculous gooseberry jam, of course...

Cream eclairs - or whatever it was Erica splurted at Joey, and cherry jam to go with the bread twists - presume they are croissants, so a good recipe for them as well!

Doesn't Matey do jam-making as well? And how about Joey's 'inventive' sandwich fillings?
