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).Read more ›
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
Recipes are all to encourage us to use British (sometimes forgotten) produce.
The recipes are easy to follow-and delicious!!
