"This beguiling book is hard to categorise - partly a guide book to the greatest culinary treasures in the British Isles; partly a travelogue; and partly a love song to our nation's food" (Food Book of the Year The Sunday Times)
"A handsome encyclopaedic survey of the best of British food" (Best Christmas Cookery Books Daily Mail)
"Particularly good are the descriptions of tastes and textures. Webb is clearly a messy eater ... but on paper he's delicious. When he talks about figit pie or bara brith it's a stern reader that doesn't find herself overtaken by a bout of empathetic dribbling" (Guardian)
"A fascinating gastronomic portrait of a nation" (The Bookseller)
"A near anthology-sized collection of the nation's most iconic regional dishes and traditional recipes, this book is a must for lovers of British food. Historical stories and producer profiles make it even more essential" (Food and Travel)

The writer has a disarming, funny, self-deprecating, well informed, somehow itself very British style; and even though its not a recipe book you learn a lot that makes you want to eat and cook what is sometimes so lovingly described. Although adherents to the cult of marmite will be outraged. A vastly more enduring, thoughtful and useful addition to your cookery library than any number of silly potboilers from our rather stale stable of celebrity writers.
As such to have a title that details some special treats to look out for when I'm out generates something a little special for your own culinary pursuits. After all finding that something special not only increases the options you have at your own meal times but also allows you to discover a few thing that you never know about (or are regional secrets) prior to reading this title.
All in this book was a wonder and I've more than got a few things that I want to try and with friends visiting from other area's I know what to ask them to bring for me to utilise which makes this, whilst not a book of recipes, one that brings the joy of quality products that are lovingly prepared that aren't available in the supermarket which not only keeps local business alive but tradition as well. Great stuff from Andrew Webb and a title that I'll have to guard as I already know one or two who are eyeing it up for "borrowing" on a permanent basis.
