A Taste of the Country by Jimmy Doherty
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"A Taste of the Country" is a celebration of country living and an invitation to town and country folk to get more involved with the land around them and the food that they put on their plate. As well as eighty recipes for traditional British farmhouse dishes from shepherd's pie to rhubarb and strawberry crumble, homemade chutney to elderflower cordial, there is information about gathering wild food, keeping a few chickens, growing your own salads, whittling walking sticks, cooking with edible flowers, pickling and preserving and much more. The dreamy, rural lifestyle captured between the pages will guarantee that all readers can have their very own taste of the good life.

Author Biography

Jimmy Doherty was born in the beautiful Essex countryside, and has been passionate about nature and farming for as long as he can remember. After leaving school, he became an entomologist at Molehall Wildlife Park, the Natural History Museum and Coventry University but, in 2003, he decided to leave the study of insects behind him to set up a rare-breed pig farm in Suffolk. His trials and tribulations were filmed by the BBC and he wrote his first book, On the Farm, to accompany the series. He still lives and works on the farm with his girlfriend, 300 pigs, 3 cows, 15 sheep, 2 dogs and 100 chickens.
