The Borough Market Cookbook: Recipes and Stories from a Year at the Market
by Ed Smith
Borough Market is the beating heart of London's food scene. Every year millions of locals and tourists flock to this market to soak up its unique atmosphere, interact with the expert traders and sample the world-class produce.
This gorgeous book is far more than a cookery book. It takes you on a tour of a year at the Market, from the beginning of spring, through Easter and Midsummer, to Apple Day in October and the switching on of the lights at Christmas – with the most delicious recipes highlighting the very best of those celebrations.
Divided by season, each recipe celebrates at least one hero ingredient from that time of year: why not try Chilled asparagus soup in spring; Rolled pork belly and sticky nectarines in summer; Beetroot dal in autumn; or Clementine sponges with cranberry sauce in winter? Along the way, you'll be introduced to key seasonal ingredients with shopping and preparation tips, straight from the artisan producers, that will change how you cook for ever.
Packed full of beautiful photography, much of it shot on location at Borough throughout the year, this is a cookbook that will inspire food lovers and home cooks everywhere, even if they only follow Borough Market from afar.
An essential gift for the keen cook in your life.
