Eat Well to Age Well - Big hit in Lithuania

'Eat Well to Age Well' has been enthusiastically discovered by the Nutritionist community on the Continent, namely in Lithuania.

An introduction to my book & Air Fryers

This is a brief introduction to my most recent book, and air fryers, which I have been busy developing a series of recipes for. Please check my recipes to see more.

I recently met Prue Leith, she had these kind words about my most recent book:

“Beverley Jarvis’ new book Eat Well to Age Well is perfectly judged to appeal to us oldies – not too complicated nor needing hours of work – ingredients easily available; healthy, light recipes; and nutritional information simply explained.”

September cream tea was a success!

Fortunately the cream tea in our garden did go ahead in late September 2021 and I believe a good time was had by all. A wonderful company from Cornwall called Rodda’s and son came up trumps, donating clotted cream and strawberry jam for 120 people. Other  local companies donated raffle prizes and I organised a pink wheel barrow of booze as first prize, which appeared popular. All in all we raised £2,800 for our wonderful Pilgrims Hospice
