Sue Baker's view...

A cookbook that offers a wide range of good food, made from British produce, showcasing the best of what’s on offer. The recipes are very tempting and there’s plenty here to widen your recipe repertoire. There are new twists on old favourites; the Scotch eggs look particularly wonderful, recipes to tempt you off the path of beef, pork, lamb and chicken, into game birds, eel and venison. A generous selection of puddings, I was pleased to see, with breads, preserves and sauces also included to provide a well-rounded look at cooking with local ingredients.

The Lovereading view...

There are lots of recipes for cooking with country ingredients, from partridge to chicken, lamb to pork, salmon to mackerel, blackberries to plums. Stews, roasts and soups sit alongside cakes, puddings and jams in this accessible cookbook that celebrates the best of British ingredients in dishes that herald from far and wide - from a roast shoulder of pork to a Thai noodle soup. All the recipes are simple to prepare and even those with the most surprising flavours are created from everyday ingredients that can be bought from the supermarket. Packed with information on selecting the best ingredients, eating seasonally and foraging, this book is an invaluable source of information as well as a delicious collection of recipes and it's topped with absolutely stunning photography, both of the finished dish and of the countryside.
