Description

Celebrated restaurateur and food writer, Mark Hix, has toured the country with leading photographer Jason Lowe to re-discover forgotten, traditional dishes and start putting British regional food back on the map. Each chapter celebrates and examines a particular region, introducing the reader to its landscape and indigenous products, and includes fascinating information and anecdotes about the traditions behind some of the country's most beloved meals. Find out why the Cornish Pasty was Britain's first convenience food, why the Welsh were eating seaweed long before sushi became fashionable, and how Lancashire came to be the birthplace of all manner of confectionery including treacle toffee. With over 100 recipes, the book provides a rich treasury of regional dishes, some totally true to tradition, others cleverly and sympathetically adapted to make them simpler and more suited to today. Thus Bubble and Squeak, Kedgeree and Roast Lamb sit perfectly alongside the more fantastically named London Particular, Liverpool Lobscouse, and Dublin Coddle. Throughout the book there are also features on the best artisan food producers throughout the country who are working to re-kindle all that's best in British food, from celebrated local cheese and ham producers whose produce rival the very best from France and Italy, to farmers who are working to revive rare breeds and forgotten varieties of fruit and vegetables.
