Be Part of Our Community Cookbook


Calling all bloggers… we’d like your help to create a KOSS Community Cookbook!

We want your favourite family recipes… breakfast, lunch, evening meals and desserts that please your VIPs… healthy snacks, cakes, party treats – anything and everything goes!

To be part of the Cookbook:

We’d like email your recipe to

Ideally, we’d like your recipes to include a couple of creative photographs of the finished dish and/or the making/baking process and of course any of your little peoples pictures and descriptions!

Talk about our #kosscookbook campaign on your blog too & help us spread the word!

We will be taking the recipes each quarter and making them into a Charity ebook.  The ebook will be available to buy for £1 and the proceeds will go to The Lullaby Trust.

Each blogger will have their own recipe page.

It will be a seasonal cook book so we want your best Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter Recipes.

Here are the cut off dates for each book:

Spring – 20th March

Summer – 9th May

Autumn – 5th September

Winter – 7th November

It’s really that easy to get involved, all entries will be entered into a prize draw so please do get creative in the kitchen to be in with the chance of winning a very special prize!
