Carol Trewin grew up in Bristol and went to Exeter University where she read English. She then moved to Yorkshire where she had a milk round, a market garden and small shop before working for the BBC. Here she helped produce radio programmes as diverse as Woman’s Hour, The Food Programme and On Your Farm and ended up as Editor of Farming Today. She left the BBC in 1997 to work as Farming Editor and then Food Editor on the Western Morning News. She has also written two other books : Gourmet Cornwall and Cornish Fishing and Seafood. All her books are illustrated by photographer Adam Woolfitt. Sadly Carol Trewin died in October 2009 aged only 56.
This is an absolutely cracking book for anyone who has a love of Devon, its landscape, its people and its way of life. It's a substantial tome with some absolutely stunning photographs throughout and Carol's superb writing style envelopes you in the story of Devon's rich interest and success in local food production. Devon has an extraordinarily varied landscape and as a result has been able to produce some of the best meat and fish, the best dairy produce and vegetables too. Sadly Carol Trewin, who was not at well while completing this book has since died but this is a fabulous tribute to her and to her journalism and her passion for Devon above all else.
