A JUNIOR chef is on target to raise £1,000 for charity from the sale of his self-penned cookbook.

Seven-year-old Dylan Allman, from Llangwm, published his first book Cracking Good Recipes just before Christmas.

Featuring 24 wacky recipes, all created by Dylan, including apple custard pie with shaving foam, ‘cheekie leekie’ pie, and Dylan’s personal favourite, flapjack stacks - there are tasty treats for all the family.

So far, Cleddau Reach pupil Dylan has raised £600 by selling his book at school, and through his very own website.

“My target is £1,000 so I would really like to hit that target and what I always say for people who are learning to cook is ‘If you buy this book you'll learn to cook’,” said Dylan.

Profits from the book, which is priced at £5.95, will go to the Wallace and Gromit Children’s Charity, which supports sick children in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.
