West School unveiled its new cookbook idea, "In the Kitchen with Westy," at the Parent Teacher Council's recent kick-off meeting.

The cookbook, titled after West School's mascot, Westy the Whale, will include favorite recipes from families and faculty. The cookbook will be separated into sections for starters, main dishes, side dishes, snacks and desserts. There also is a special initiative to ensure that every child enrolled at West School will be included.

Jill Castle, child nutrition expert and New Canaan mother, will be writing a special section on healthy eating tips. "In the Kitchen with Westy" is being designed by West School mother and artist Patty Severance.

The cookbook will be ready for the holidays.

The cost is $40, and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit West School in the classroom and with enrichment activities for the students.
