Homegrown food is celebrated in The Really Quite Good British Cookbook
“What do you cook for the people you love?” was the question posed by William Sitwell, the editor of Waitrose’s magazine and this collection of recipes, to 100 British chefs, cooks, bakers and food heroes. The result is a celebration of all that is brilliant about British cooking, and its melting pot of influences. Recipes from beekeepers and local bakers sit alongside contributions from Michelinstarred chefs*, including Nigella, Jamie and Raymond, who serve up tasty delights including a breakfast of nettles on toast with pollack, wild garlic and poached egg, a lunch of Saigon Fresh Summer Rolls and a lip-smacking dinner of risotto with courgette and crab.
