Most of the recipes within Sheila's archive come in the form of A4 handwritten sheets, however there are several "compilations" that Sheila put together either for charity events or to share with friends and family around the festive period. This page details some of the features of these compilations and provides links to see the recipes they contained.

Eden Valley Hospice Food and Flowers Presentation

This small book (more of a leaflet really) indicates that it was produced on Thursday 11th November, 1999. Whilst all recipes are credited to Sheila, the book also includes a credit for somebody called Derek Armstrong although it is unclear what involvement Derek had (possibly production?).

The booklet was sold for £1 and indicates that all proceeds would be given to the Eden Valley Hospice funds.

Christmas Wishes

A selection of seasonal recipes from the city and guilds cooks professional, 1990 department of food and creative arts, Newton Rigg.

Many of the recipes in this book are actually credited to other authors so we think this is more a book that Sheila contributed to rather than one she wrote herself. For this reason, we have not included any recipe that was explicitly credited to someone other than Sheila.

This book was produced by Sheila with proceeds in aid of Eden Valley Hospice, Carlisle. It opens with a foreword from two members of Eden Valley staff, Dr. M A Briggs (Medical Director) and Mrs M Masson (Matron/Manager);

"It is with great pleasure that we write this forward to Sheila's latest Recipe Book. Once again an exciting collection of new recipes and old favourites are included.We are extremely grateful to Sheila and her sponsors for producing and printing this edition.

Sheila generously donated all the profits from the sales of this book to Eden Valley Hospice, which she has unstingingly supported over many years.We are sure you will enjoy these recipes, and also be tempted to join Sheila's demonstrations which have become an established part of fundraising for the hospice.

Sheila, we thank you very much indeed"

Festive Fare

A selection of tried and tested recipes suitable for the festive season, from Sheila Hogarth. The book opens with the following quote;

"Now thrice welcome Christmas, which brings us good cheer, mince pies and plum porridge, good ale and strong beer."

Proceeds from the sale of Festive Fare were in aid of the Inglewood Infant School fund.

More Christmas Recipes

This book didn't have any kind of footnote or introduction so we're not sure exactly why it was produced other than as a way to share some recipe ideas for the Christmas period.

The "More" in the title probably refers to the fact that Christmas was a common theme in the recipes Sheila tended to share.

Cooking for the small family

This was a hand-written book (more of a pamphlet really!) but the version we have looks to have been photocopied, so we assume this was something Sheila put together prior to buying a computer.

The cover is plain, but signed by S. Hogarth.
