Product description


'Phil Vickery has travelled the length of Britain seeking out our very best local produce, the farmers who grow it, and 130 recipes making the very best use of these ingredients. A brilliant idea, it's bursting with individual stories and looks simply gorgeous thanks to some fine photography.' -- Living North

'Ready Steady Cook favourite Phil Vickery has travelled around Britain for his latest tome and the result is a spectacular showcase for home-grown food.' -- PureTaste

'TV chef Phil Vickery has toured the nation looking for Britain's best ingredients and unsung producers. The result is a cracking read as well as a user-friendly cookbook. Vickery's descriptions of his countrywide encounters are wonderfully entertaining.' -- Waitrose Food Illustrated

'This handsome book is a celebration of the strength and depth of Britain's food heritage. Focusing on 10 different regions, TV chef Phil Vickery has put together a range of inventive recipes using some of the country's leading ingredients (including Cornish sardines, Welsh lamb and Cromer crabs). Not every recipe is illustrated, but there are enough photographs to whet your appetite. Many recipes have an unusual twist: we enjoyed the Lager-steamed salmon with basil & lemon and the Caerphilly & wild garlic tart. THE VERY BEST OF BRITISH FOOD.' -- BBC Good Food Magazine

An epic undertaking, this book saw Phil travel the length and breadth of Britain over a period of 19 months. His mission? A quest for perfection, to meet the best of Britain's food producers and suppliers. This gorgeous book is not a straight collection of recipes, although the recipes themselves are sumptious and tempting. Through excellent photography and great writing, it truly evokes Phil's journey and really summons up the spirit of the people and places he visited, the food that he tasted and the passion for quality that he encountered along the way.' -- The Somerfield Magazine

Book Description

More than 130 recipes from this most accessible of Michelin-starred chefs.
