Juniper Barn in Rendham launches charity recipe of the week

Claire Cornier

Juniper Barn village shop and café in Rendham, a village nestled by the Alde River in between the towns of Saxmundham and Framlingham, is launching an initiative to encourage people to share their passion for food or drink while helping to raise money for local good causes.

Juniper Barn’s Recipe of the Week will be all about bringing food, drink and the wider community together through the sharing of recipes that evoke memories, or that were inspired by a particular trip or life event. From the beginning of January 2022 members of the public are invited to make submissions, a selection of which will be included in a Juniper Barn recipe book to be published in late 2022. The book will be sold in the Juniper Barn shop and online, with all profits from sales going towards a local project or cause which will be decided by the village itself, and announced when the book launches.

Submissions should include: The ingredients and a step-by-step recipe that is easy to follow, the story that makes the recipe special, an image of the food or drink and a photo of the person submitting. Full details of what will be required can be found on the Juniper Barn website. People whose recipes are selected for inclusion in the recipe book will receive a free copy once published, and many recipes will feature on Juniper Barn’s website and social media channels.

Claire Cornier, the new owner at Juniper Barn, has travelled extensively and she has been inspired by her cultural and gastronomic experiences. “My hope for the Juniper Barn Recipe of the Week initiative is that the resulting book will be an interesting collection of drink and food recipes which will inspire people in the same way that my travels have inspired me. The stories behind the recipes will make it even more appealing and the profits will benefit the local community so we’re hoping that everyone will get involved.”

The café at Juniper Barn offers a seasonal menu of delicious all-day breakfasts, freshly prepared sharing boards, ‘soul bowls’ of homemade soup, stews and curries, and a tempting selection of cakes and pastries, with the menu being updated monthly. The shop also sells a range of fresh and local food including bread and fresh vegetables, championing local producers as much as possible.
