Book Description

7 May 2009

Galton Blackiston is one of Britain's best-kept culinary secrets. Widely acclaimed throughout his much-loved home county of Norfolk and highly rated by his fellow chefs (Delia Smith and Simon Hopkinson among them), he embodies the very best of British cooking. Using the freshest ingredients to create simple yet stunning dishes, Galton consistently wows diners and critics alike.

Delicious, easy to make and unpretentious, the mouthwatering recipes in Summertime are all evocative of the warmer months and transform straightforward meals into something truly special.

Whether it's an irresistible breakfast of warm crumpets with blueberry butter, an impressive dinner-party dish of wild salmon, new potato and watercress terrine, or the perfect pork pie and homemade piccalilli to make that picnic memorable, the recipes are sure to inspire that summer feeling all year round.

Product Description


"Morston Hall is . . . as close to an earthly paradise as a British hotel-restaurant will transport you . . . Technically brilliant, beautifully presented, free from the usual bucolic hotel-restaurant pretension, [the food] zings with the inventiveness of someone who cooks not for money, reverence or ostentation, but with passion for his work" (Matthew Norman Guardian)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great recipe book and an enjoyable read 9 Oct 2010
Not only a recipe book but also a lovely read. Galton uses lots of lovely fresh produce and has many interesting anecdotes. Having grown up in Norfolk, I love to get the book out and picture myself back in Norfolk. There are so many recipes that I have enjoyed cooking (and eating). I originally bought this book for my father as a present but I sat down and read it cover to cover and decided to keep it for myself and buy him a fresh copy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Churning them out! 31 Mar 2010
I am a great fan of his and have the first two books both of which I have used lots of time and the recipes work; in fact for one recipe I had to ring his hotel and ask for clarification on something, which he willingly gave.
This latest book however has far too many pictures of Norfolk, Galton and his lovely family and beautiful as they are it feels more like a guide book!
Struggling to find recipes that really stand out for me.
