The huge number of entries are clear, with as much information as one could want - from opening hours and contact details to ordering methods and payment options. The entries are also individual, not formulaic, and give a real flavour of the producers and what they stand for. Whatever you're looking for, wherever you are, there is something to tempt the tastebuds. Whether you're looking to plan a trip around your stomach, or just find a hidden gem locally, the Guide comes up trumps. I've found several places within 20 minutes of my home which I never knew about and now frequent with delicious consequences.
All in all, this book is well worth investing in: clear, informative, inspirational and a brilliant source of ideas for days out or just something different and tasty. If you buy one foody book this year, make it the Good Food Producers Guide!
The guide provides all the information that you need to eat well without relying on the supermarkets. The book covers everything from delis, farm shops, cheese producers, butchers, a seasonal food calender, and lists on all the nationwide food festivals, I was hungry within minutes!
As a food-loving young family (we rear pigs ourselves..), the Guide now lives in the car and is a great reference whether we're on the way to the beach, grandparents, away-matches, or road trips, and means that we can stock up on local delicacies when on our travels, that we would be hard pressed to find otherwise.
I'm sure there are some great places in here ... but I really don't know if I can be bothered to test the thumb muscles moving backwards and forwards through the book to find them.
And I know there's an index by region in the back but that just gives the shop name with no hint of what sort of shop it might be.
Sorry Rose, I really wanted this book to work, but it just doesn't.

This book represents poor value for money if you live outside London and the South-east of England as very few outlets are listed in other regions and many of these turn out to be... Read morePublished on 15 April 2010 by Mrs. A. Paul
