We have teamed up with Mackie’s at Taypack to publish our first book of recipes to help raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy UK. With a collection of 31 fun and tasty recipes - both sweet & savoury that feature ice cream, chocolate, crisps & popcorn - the hardback book - titled 'Cooking with Mackie's' - will be available first at BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham (14th - 17th June) and the Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh (21st - 24th June) and our Ice Cream Parlour in Aberdeen from 25th June. (We will keep you updated when the books become available to buy online).
We hope that you’ll find this to be a fun, tasty collection of recipes which are easy to make at home - and provide interesting ways to enjoy our products whilst helping raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy. We have witnessed first-hand the suffering and effect that the condition causes, through the loss of both our former Sales Director and long term staff member, Denis Emslie, and Mark Taylor, brother of Taypack’s Managing Director, George Taylor, who sadly lost their lives to forms of Muscular Dystrophy. Proceeds from the book sales will go towards Muscular Dystrophy Scotland and their work towards developing a cure, along with providing resources and support.
