Download all our recipes in a handy cookbook

You waited patiently, and it’s here at last! Our brand new Skanda Vale Cookbook app brings together the very best recipes from the Skanda Vale Temple Kitchen with some firm favourites from the Hospice.

All proceeds from the sale of this app help us to provide free care for people with life limiting illnesses. Our sincere gratitude and thanks to Richard Fairall for testing each recipe and developing this app.

    I just wanted to ask if it will ever be available as a good ol fashioned book?I personally am old school and dont use apps at all.Having said that this is a great idea especially as nowadays alot of people live off apps!

    Great I look forward to the cookbook. I can buy loads as gifts then. The app is great but I have no room on my phone to download it at the mo. So happy to have the chance to have the taste of Skandavale at home!
