By Marand TOP 500 REVIEWER on 10 Jun. 2011
Format: Hardcover
I was lucky in that I was able to borrow this book from the library - I have 350+ cook books and am now trying to filter new acquisitions to those I will get a good deal of use out of. Apparently the book is based on a TV programme which I have never seen, or indeed heard of, so my comments are based solely on the book.

The contributors are all the usual names in TV cookery, from Michael Roux to the Hairy Bikers. Each contributor gets a single ingredient which forms the basis for the recipes in each chapter. The aim is to explore the variety of British produce but this is not to say the recipes are traditional British dishes. There are, of course, some traditional dishes but there are recipes which originate in Italy, India, France, etc. - the link being the use of home-grown ingredients. The chapters are as follows:

Bread (Michel Roux)
Crab (Angela Hartnett)
Potato (Greg Wallace)
Pork (Clarissa Dickson-Wright)
Cauliflower (the Hairy Bikers)
Mutton (Matt Tebbutt)
Tomato (Gary Rhodes)
Apple (James Martin)
Honey (Ainsley Harriott)
Cheese (Glynn Purnell)

I have to say that I found the book title to be somewhat misleading. For example, I really couldn't see what was particularly British about bread-making either in terms of the source of ingredients or the recipes themselves. In this short chapter there is one recipe for bread (a perfectly decent sandwich loaf) followed by a few recipes which use bread as a central ingredient, such as Diplomat pudding (actually a French version of bread & butter pudding - although the recipe produced a very lovely dish) or which accompany bread (for example baked eggs, or anchovy toast).

Bought this for my sister ,who has loads of cookery books -but there is always room on the shelf for one more ! She loved it - said she hadn't seen it before and has already cooked some recipes out of it for unsuspecting guests at her small hotel.

The Great British Food Revival is more than a cookery book it is worth leaving on your coffee table to browse through
Although the suppliers list was London orientated and the North East of England where some of the best Swaledale mutton and beef is produced was not mentioned I, never the less, sort out local suppliers and was impressed with James's Slow Roast Pork and found Clarissa's simple pork Terrine a great standby over the holiday weekend Garry's pan Fried salmon will also be joining my recipe folder A good read and interesting take on British food

Having watched the series on tv, we decided to purchase the book. The recipes are easy to follow and work perfectly every time. In this changing world it is important that consumers make educated decisions about where our food comes from and what it tastes like, and this cookbook helps to do this.

Also Isle of Wight garlic is amazing :)

Lovely book. Great recipes, stories, pictures etc. I can highly recommend this book to anyone! With easy and advanced recipes it's good for any sort of cook. But it is also great just to flip through it and read a bit. Though sometimes you have to be a bit creative when it comes to the local products. When I saw the show on BBC I instantly loved it, even though I live in the Netherlands. Of course, our range of products are a bit different. But with some trial and error I've come a long way!
