Britain is home to the tastiest fruits and vegetables, fish, meat, and honeys in the world but many of our original species and breeds are under threat by foreign invaders. British food needs us! From West Country apples, rare breed bacon, Baldwin blackcurrants and Scottish heather honey, THE GREAT BRITISH FOOD REVIVAL is the nation's definitive collection of British recipes. Combining traditional ingredients with modern flair, these dishes provide every reason why we should be eating and cooking local produce from the British Isles. With big flavours and simple ingredients, the food is the star.
