A recipe book has just been published in memory of Kate Furneaux, a talented chemist at Leeds who died in 2009 aged 27 following a cycling accident.
Kate had only just received her PhD in Atmospheric Chemistry from Leeds and was poised to start a promising career at a Max Planck Institute in Germany.
"Kate’s Cakes" is a compilation of 70 simple recipes put together by her friends Rebecca White and Catherine O'Leary-Steele who were also PhD students at the department. Proceeds from the book will be donated to People & Planet, a national student-led campaigning network which campaigns for global economic, social and environmental justice. The book, costing £10, is available at www.jeremymills publishing.co.uk.
