5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book, 18 July 2009
This review is from: Riverford Farm Cook Book: Tales from the Fields, Recipes from the Kitchen (Paperback)
I bought this after visiting the farm and having a meal in their field kitchen. The meal at the field kitchen was truly stunning and it is brilliant that I can recreate some of their wonderful recipes at home. My partner has called it "restaurant quality food".

It's organised into sections which relate to the veg (and some fruit) in alphabetical order. Around 4 recipes are given for each plus extra ideas at the end. The index is also very helpful in also listing ingredients which comprise part of the dish but may not be the main ingredient (eg if you are looking for cheesy dishes you don't have to flick through the whole book if you have some cheese to use up).

I made the chocolate beetroot Brownies for work and they were a huge hit. The baked courgettes with chilli and mint worked wonders in persuading my other half to eat courgettes, not usually his first choice veg.

Also good are the hints at the end for using up the bits and bobs lurking in the bottom of the fridge and I also liked the commentary on subjects like supermarkets and food miles which I wholeheartedly agree with.

If you are still pondering whether or not to buy this book you can download some of the recipes from this book from the Riverford web site which gives you an idea of how great the book is.

I love cooking and own a lot of cook books, but this has to be one of the best. I'm veggie and whilst a few of the recipes aren't there is plenty of veggie content to make it well worth the money.
