An­other Suf­folk Feast

EADT Suffolk - - FOOD BITES -

Food writer Tessa Alling­ham – a reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor to Suf­folk Mag­a­zine – has re­leased her lat­est book Suf­folk Feast: One County, Twenty Chefs, a sec­ond edi­tion of the sell-out orig­i­nal pub­lished in 2015.

The book pro­files some favourite Suf­folk chefs, in­sight­ful in­ter­views that ex­plore their vi­tal re­la­tion­ships with lo­cal pro­duc­ers. Packed with stun­ning pho­tog­ra­phy by Phil Mor­ley, it in­cludes recipes and cham­pi­ons Suf­folk pro­duce from field to fork. More than just a cook­book, it’s a com­pre­hen­sive food lovers’ guide to the county and a must-have for any­one who loves eat­ing in this re­gion.

As well as her own words, Tessa has sought con­tri­bu­tions from re­spected lo­cal jour­nal­ists Linda Duf­fin and Frances Hopewell-Smith. To­gether they have cre­ated a pas­sion­ately en­thu­si­as­tic cel­e­bra­tion of Suf­folk’s food and farm­ing her­itage, as well as the ex­tra­or­di­nary skills of some of its chefs.

Nine­teen of the 20 chefs fea­tured in the book came out of their kitchens for the launch (one chef was un­well) hosted by Hintle­sham Hall, to­gether with lo­cal pro­duc­ers and me­dia. They en­joyed a fizz and canapé re­cep­tion pre­pared by chef Alan Ford and his team.

“Putting to­gether this book has been a joy from start to fin­ish,” says Tessa. “We are hugely grate­ful to our 20 chefs and pro­duc­ers for telling us their sto­ries and shar­ing their favourite recipes. We hope you en­joy recre­at­ing them – and of course eat­ing in the fab­u­lous restau­rants!”

Suf­folk Feast, with a fore­word by jockey Frankie Det­tori, is on sale at the 20 pro­filed restau­rants and at good re­tail­ers, priced £24.50.
