Product Description

Review

"A must for the discriminatingly greedy" (Andrew Marr Daily Telegraph)

"This guide to food and the seasons is not a preachy, finger-wagging tome. It is written with a real delight in food and produce... and tells you not just when things are in their natural seasons, but when and why certain foods taste better at certain times of the year - and how to cook them" (Aileen Reid Sunday Telegraph)

"The perfect reference book for all keen cooks, for all those fed up with all year round strawberries, and for all those who want an affinity for the seasons" (Antony Worrall Thompson)

"I like Paul Waddington's book. It seemed to me more than what it says on the cover with equally important advice on when things will actually be at their best. Obviously a labour of love for the author as well as a valuable companion for his reader" (Shaun Hill)

"A superb book and a must for anyone even remotely interested in cooking" (Highland News)

Book Description

A crucial companion for the keen cook who wants the best ingredients: tells you what to buy, when to buy it, where to buy it (and even how to cook it) to eat the best.

This book is a great addition to my kitchen and complements my many cook books. The author introduces the topic by discussing how far away we've moved from being in tune with nature and the seasons. He sets out the food that's in season in the United Kingdom by month; he also includes some recipes which I'm dying to try. I love that I can combine seasonal cooking with my normal cooking each month and surprise people by cooking vegetables they wouldn't think to eat. I really recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a well-written book about how to live more in tune with nature and enhance your culinary experiences at the same time.

A really first class book - well written and it draws your attention to the blessing from the Gods that we have so much locally grown, locally produced food in the British Isles - we are really well off - sure it's fine to have other foods and some Ethnic foods provide delicious variety; but our own seasonal stuff - not so far for it to travel - is fresher and must from that FACT be better for us to eat. I need a garden - I'll grow my own.

Well worth buying if you are interested in getting out of the trap of eating old, frozen, irradiated, sprayed and heavens knows what else food from anywhere but the UK. This is how our ancestors survived and they were generally leaner and more fit than we are today. A good reference book too. A must have for the health or cooking section of your personal library.

This is a great little book, no pictures as such but really neat and informative. Not over full with info just gives you the things you really want to know.

This is great - very simple to use, it feels comprehensive and evocative of the seasons and pretty informative. I would have likes more focus on the farming and less on the consumer (more information about processes and sources - deeper information)

If you want to know what foods are in season in britain, this is the perfect book. Written with humour, skill and a in-depth knowledge what we should eat and when! Thoroughly recommended!

There are some useful pointers here but, reading in February, it lacked the depth and detail for a reference or the 'zip' for an inspiring Winter read.

Not quite what I hoped it would be. Something between a guide to seasonal food and a general foodie book. I was hoping it would be a little more comprehensive in scope.
