The Great British Food Revival 100 Delicous Recipes to Celebrate Sensational Local British Produce

The Great British Food Revival 100 Delicous Recipes to Celebrate Sensational Local British Produce

Author: Blanch Vaughan Format: Hardback Release Date: 03/03/2011

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. And to celebrate with true cooking magic the Hairy Bikers, Clarissa Dickson-Wright, James Martin and many other top chefs take the reader on a gastronomic journey and rediscover the jewels of our great food heritage.

Ministry of Food Thrifty Wartime Ways to Feed Your Family Today

Ministry of Food Thrifty Wartime Ways to Feed Your Family Today

Author: Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall, Imperial War Museum (Great Britain) Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/02/2010

When war broke out in 1939, the government created the Ministry of Food to help families make the most of wartime rations. Today, in the face of rising food prices, a real obesity problem and ever increasing food miles, The Ministry of Food shows how we can all survive the credit crunch with a bit of wartime wisdom and ingenuity.

There has never been a greater interest in cooking. Never been such a wide range of accessible ingredients from all over the world. Cultural diversity has led to us all broadening our culinary horizons. What better time to celebrate the sumptuous array of delectable books on offer, covering all aspects of our growing obsession with all things food … and drink (!). You won’t find the obvious choices here, the big name chefs and TV show spin-offs. We hope that we’ve lovingly compiled a special menu of off the beaten track titles to fire your imaginations and your ovens. Uncork your inner sommelier, sauté your inner chef and share a spoonful of our passion for something saucy, lip-smacking, eye-feasting and thirst-quenching. Bon Appetit!

We hope you’ll find our Food and Drink category full of titles that can be enjoyed either sitting in the armchair or used in a more practical way in the kitchen. Some of them provide a mixture of both.
