This glorious celebration of the vibrant buzzing community of traders and producers, of their high-quality products, values and ethos, and the pure simple joy of delicious seasonal cooking makes me want to run to the maze of alleys under the railway arches and run quickly back home to cook. (Claudia Roden)
Borough is one of the great European food markets, sitting proudly alongside La Boqueria in Barcelona, Testaccio in Rome and Cours Saleya in Nice. I always get a thrill when I visit, whether it's to grab an armful of puntarelle or to indulge in a Kappacasein melted cheese sandwich. The Borough Market Cookbook brings that excitement to life with a remarkable chronicle of the market's origins a thousand years ago to its renaissance in the 1990s. I loved the joyful recipes and the engaging storytelling; it's essential reading for anyone interested in food. (Russell Norman, restaurateur and food writer)
This book is a rare gem: a bible in the kitchen, a brilliant guide to using seasonal produce and a great pleasure to read. (Meera Sodha, author of Made in India and Fresh India)
This book is the perfect representation of the market itself, where seasonality, amazing produce, history, creativity and visual panache come together and just make you want to cook!It will be a huge source of inspiration for years to come. (Olia Hercules, author of Mamushka and Kaukasis)
Borough Market has played an important role in the development of British food culture. By allowing a relationship to develop between citizens and food producers, its rise has marked a new beginning for British production. Going into the Market means meeting the producers, talking to them, hearing their stories. It is a place that offers so much: history, integrity, wonderful food and the chance to really understand what you're eating. By respecting tradition, promoting sustainability and revelling in the love of good food, Borough Market provides a true representation of the philosophy of Slow Food. (Carlo Petrini, founder and president of Slow Food)

From the Publisher
The Borough Market Cookbook
The Borough Market Cookbook follows the Market over the course of a year. It is presented in four seasonal sections with wonderful recipes inspired by each season, interspersed with trader profiles and key events and scenes. This cookbook captures the essence of market shopping so that even if you live far away from Borough, you can still discover new ways to make the most of the exceptional produce your local market has to offer.
Recipes and stories from a year at the market
The Market is somewhat of a maze, which enhances the feeling that this is a place to wander and to discover. The various paths and corners mean there are constant new sights and smells, and it takes multiple visits to truly get your bearings. The shopping experience at a produce market is very different to time spent in modern supermarkets. You’re bound to find something different every time you visit.
While elsewhere food shopping has become increasingly depersonalised, at Borough Market you have no choice but to interact. Through these daily exchanges, customers are encouraged to eat with the seasons, consider the social and environmental impact of their purchases, buy only what’s needed and eat every bit of it.
Shopping in the fresh air changes the cook’s perspective. It links each visitor to the natural world, in much the same way as it has for centuries. This is a cookbook that promotes inquisitive shopping and cooking from scratch; one that encourages us to take full advantage of the amazing things on offer at markets specialising in fresh, quality and artisanal ingredients.
