RRP £25.00

Sue Baker's view...

From the founders of the London grocery shops Melrose and Morgan a thorough guide to good food, where to buy it, what to buy and what to keep in stock with additional guides to preserving and recipes too. You’ll find a good range of the best British foods included with as much emphasis on provenance as the best wine merchant. The book appeals for the design too, lovely clean lines and clear layout. A useful and inspiring guide to eating and cooking the best and a personal thank you to the author for referencing Law’s Grocery Manual, a Victorian Trade Reference which does more than anything to show the difference between then and now, a trawl of on-line second-hand booksellers will dredge up a few copies of this fascinating book.

Synopsis

Good Food for Your Table A Grocer's Guide by Nick Selby, Melrose Morgan

Good Food For Your Table is a grocer's guide: this is the shopping basket deconstructed, including all you need to know about seasonality, provenance, storage, preserving and serving the very best food. Melrose and Morgan have ten years' experience as high-street grocers, and here they share expert information to help you buy the best food so there will always be good things to eat at home. A well-stocked larder is the backbone of any kitchen, and this book is a compendium of advice on the best ingredients to buy and how to manage your kitchen cupboard to ensure nothing goes to waste. It also includes a selection of favourite recipes and simple, quick ideas to rustle up a meal. If you've ever found yourself confused about the difference between mixed spice and allspice, Stilton and Stichelton, quinoa and couscous, then this is the book for you. We all want to be more knowledgeable about the food we eat, and this is the essential storecupboard handbook that no discerning cook should be without.

Reviews
