The Duchy Originals Cookbook by Nick Sandler, Johnny Acton

Duchy Originals is now one of Britain's leading premium and organic food brands. It was founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1990 with a clear mission: to promote top-quality British food produced according to the principles of sustainable agriculture. The venture has succeeded beyond all expectations. Since its debut with an oaten biscuit made from organic grain grown on the Prince's Gloucestershire farm, Duchy Originals has expanded its range to encompass more than 200 uncompromisingly good products, from Scottish heather honey to Essex Bronze turkeys. Duchy Originals Cookbook reconnects the reader with the joys of real food and reminds us that modern food production doesn't have to be faceless or destructive. Johnny and Nick visit Duchy producers throughout the UK, from the Amiss family in Devon with their clouds of white geese to the venerable Walkers biscuit makers of Speyside in Scotland. They pick the brains of the people who have created the products for tips about how best to use them and they apply their own culinary imaginations to create 100 mouth-watering recipes inspired by the Duchy range. Throughout, they trace the two principles that have guided the brand since its inception: to combine traditional wisdom with contemporary creativity and to encourage people to think about where their food has come from. Duchy Originals Cookbook is a passionate and inspiring celebration of a better way of living.

About the Author

Nick Sandler is a freelance development chef whose love affair with Duchy Originals products began when he created a range of soups and casseroles for them. His work requires him to dream up new dishes and establish the best ways to process and preserve them for delis and supermarkets. Johnny Acton is an entrepreneurial writer/journalist whose career has included driving a mini-cab and writing obituaries for The Times. Brought up on a farm, Johnny is a keen advocate of sustainable and organic farming and he firmly believes in the importance of local, seasonal produce. Together, Johnny and Nick have written three books for Kyle Cathie Ltd - Soup, Mushroom and Preserved.
