The Devon Food Book

by Carol Trewin

Cookery, Food and Drink The Real World

LoveReading View on The Devon Food Book

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.


The Devon Food Book Synopsis

Linking the Landscape to the Food on Your Plate.

Devon produces some of the best food in Britain, from meat to fish and shellfish, cheese, clotted cream and vegetables, not to mention top class beers, cider and wines. The Devon Food Book explores the stories of some of the people behind this cornucopia of produce. Along with the history of farming, fishing and food production the book paints a fascinating picture of how Devon’s food culture and landscape have evolved together. The story is completed by recipes from some of the county’s most celebrated chefs, featuring these products.

Carol Trewin and Adam Woolfitt have already collaborated on two books, 'Gourmet Cornwall' and 'Cornish Fishing and Seafood'. Both books won the Gourmand World Cook Book Award for Best Local Cook Book in 2005 and 2006 respectively.
