Find out how you can support StP’s 25th Anniversary Campaign

To mark St Petrock’s 25th Anniversary, Linda our kitchen manager, will be sharing 25 of our homeless clients’ favourite meals over the course of 2021.

Food that brings warmth, comfort and a taste of ‘home’ always goes down a treat. We’ll be posting the recipes here so you can try making them at home. Give them a go, make a donation and send us / share a picture of your dish on social media (#stpetrocks25) – we hope you enjoy them as much as our clients do!

  1. To get us started, a warming winter favourite: Linda’s special chicken curry

2. Just missed Veganaury, but a real treat for the taste buds nevertheless: Veggie & Tofu Stir-Fry.

3. A sweet treat for Valentine’s Day (and a favourite all year round with St Petrock’s clients): Queen of Puddings

4. A warming winter favourite with a hint of spring to come: Linda’s Chickpea, Mushroom & Thyme Pie…

5. A colourful treat to mark International Women’s Day on 8th March: Linda’s Suffragette Key Lime Pie (with purple, white and green!)

6. Old favourites always hit the spot. Linda cooks her Cottage Pie in bulk for our hungry clients – why not make one and freeze one to drop-off to a friend in need, or keep one in the freezer for post-lockdown guests?

7. A topsy-turvy special for April Fool’s Day: Chocolate & Pear Upside Down Pudding. (A potential for charming bank holiday weekend garden guests?)

8. A ‘down to earth’ favourite to celebrate World Earth Day: Quiche Lorraine. Serve with a crisp green salad straight from the garden.

9. Shakshuka: A speciality from North Africa and the Middle East, as Ramadan draws to a close. This easy-to-make take on poached eggs makes a great brunch!

10. Double Dhal with Carrot & Raita Salad: A special from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall to celebrate St Petrock’s Day & Devon Day on 4th June.

11. Sardines & Beans: A protein-rich feast from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall for St Petrock’s Day – perfect for rough-sleeper lunch packs.

12. Lasagne: This classic recipe was inspired by a kind meal donation from new Exeter restaurant, Sabatini’s. Traditional family favourites always go down a treat with StP’s clients!

13. Mediterranean Ratatouille: A colourful taste of the summer sun.
