About 60 people attended the book launch, and the authors will donate $212 from the event towards the Smith Family literacy programs in Kwinana.

Kevin and Jasmine’s mother Barb, said there had been a huge response after an article in the Weekend Courier.

Malibu Fresh Essentials in Safety Bay provided fruit for the book launch.

Malibu Fresh Essentials owner Basil Paparone was so impressed with the siblings’ enterprising spirit, he offered them an opportunity to promote their book and recipes at his store.

Kevin (14) and Jasmine (16) will be in the store from 11am to 1pm and customers can sample their dragon fruit and coconut shake. Visitors can also buy the cookbook, get it signed and enrol their children in a cooking class.

The Fruit Advent Calendar offers a different type of fruit and an associated recipe each day in the lead up to Christmas.

Kevin and Jasmine will be at Malibu Fresh Essentials once a month leading up to December 25.
