Taste of Cricket Cookbook: Submit your own recipe

Your Taste of Cricket recipes could feature in a new cookbook!

Following the summer’s Taste of Cricket festivities, the ECB is launching a Taste of Cricket cookbook, brought to you by Raising The Game. The book will feature a range of beloved classics and innovative twists on match tea recipes, crowdsourced from grassroots volunteers, cricket and foodie royalty, and famous fans of the game.  

The ECB invites cricket fans to contribute their own match tea recipes for a chance to be featured in this cookbook. Entering is simple: just fill out this form (a Google account is required). 

Eligibility: UK residents aged 14 and over 

Two winners will be selected to have their recipes, photo and cricket story included in the cookbook.  

Submit your recipe today and become part of the Taste of Cricket legacy!
