5.0 out of 5 stars As inspiring as the place itself, 31 Aug. 2008
By 
This review is from: Riverford Farm Cook Book: Tales from the Fields, Recipes from the Kitchen (Paperback)
The Riverford Farm Cook Book does what it says on the tin. Providing a gorgeous range of recipes from Jane Baxter, accompanied by writing from Guy which provides a background to the Riverford ethos. There is also guidance on vegetables you may wish to grow yourself - and how to store them - and when they're in season.

Recipes are organised by the main ingredient, maybe 3 or 4 recipes for each ingredient, but then there's a long list of 'quick ideas' - mini recipes which you can knock up speedily, and directions to the other recipes in the book which involve that ingredient (I know the index could do the same but I think it's a really nice touch!). Ingredients range from apples to celeriac with everything in between.

Brussel Sprouts (some might hate them but I don't!)

Bubble and Squeak Soup with Wensleydale
Crisp Brussels Sprouts with Pine Nuts and Balsamic Vinegar
Wok fried Brussels Sprouts with Ginger

Onions and Shallots

Red Onion Salad with Beetroot, Lentils, Feta and Mint
Pissladiere
Sausages with Onion Gravy
Caramalised Shallots
Twice-cooked Belly Pork with Spring Onions and Ginger

Recipes are unfussy and don't have hordes of odd ingredients - but you know they'll be good just from reading them. Guy's writing is accessible, interesting and thought provoking! 5 stars and well deserved.

So the book's pretty much like the orginial veg box cookbook they nicked the idea from then, even down to the index format? Try the original and genuine Boxing Clever Cookbook, just google it up.

Having a go at Riverford is such a cheap shot!
They have been in the organic veg business for over 20 years, they do not need to prove to anyone that they are 'the original' believe me! If you go and have the glorious food at the 'Field Kitchen' you know that Jane knows what good food is!
'Boxing Clever' is nowhere near as elegant or well put together as Riverford's effort by the way!
