TV chefs joined hundreds of guests at a book launch in aid of people with learning disabilities in Cricklewood.

Katie Caldesi and her husband Giancarlo Caldesi were guest speakers at the Cook, Share, Taste book launch which helped raise £15,000 for Norwood and Israel Cancer Association.

The book was created by Cooking Lunch Girls, a group of 17 women from Barnet who chose to sell copies in aid of the two charities.

Norwood will use the money to support children with learning disabilities at the Hope Centre in Walm Lane, Cricklewood.

Mr and Mrs Caldesi have featured on top cookery shows including Masterchef and Saturday Kitchen.
