“VORN”-   Page 159

Dear friends ,

We would like to bring to the attention of all “Mais Recipes” patrons, specifically those who have purchased/received the new print edition of the book during the past two and a half to three years;

Due to a printing error the ‘Manni’ recipe is also printed for the ‘Vorn’ recipe.

The correct vorn recipe is given herebelow and we request you to kindly replace page 159 of Mai’s Recipes with this page.

You may also access the recipe with step-by-step procedure online, following this link :

We would like to thank Gwen Soeiro, for bringing this to our notice.

Thank you for your understanding and for your kind and continued patronage!
