Anyone who reverts to seasonal cooking and using British produce regains that excitement when the first peas are swelling in their pods, the strawberries starting to blush, that first clutch of new potatoes unearthed. You don’t get that from the supermarket! Mark Hix captures this perfectly, celebrating the best in his new book British Seasonal Food. The gorgeous illustrations compliment a recipe selection that uses some classic ingredients but also introducing new and unjustly neglected ones too. Reducing your carbon footprint, enjoying some of the world’s finest produce and taking pleasure in cooking with the seasons – all in one book.

Synopsis

British Seasonal Food by Mark Hix

Most ingredients are now available all year round, flown in from afar as necessary, but there is no doubt that food eaten in season - and preferably grown as close to home as possible - tastes far, far better. Mark Hix cares passionately about British food and is keen for readers to experience the excitement that cooking seasonally offers. In British Seasonal Food, he draws attention month-by-month to the homegrown ingredients at their seasonal best. He provides information on where to source the foods, how to prepare and cook them, and suggests simple ways to serve them - to enjoy their flavour to the full. For each featured ingredient, he also presents a selection of inventive mouth-watering recipes - Chilled Pea and Lovage Soup, Fried Green Tomatoes in Beer Batter, Roast Goose with Sprout Tops and Quince Sauce, Autumn Fruits with Sloe Gin Jelly. Superbly photographed by Jason Lowe and with original drawings that capture the mood of the seasons, this book is guaranteed to become a British classic.

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.
