Now out – The Leicestershire and Rutland Cookbook

May 4, 2016

In this most marvellous, historic week for our city and county I’m delighted to announce that the Leicestershire and Rutland Cookbook is now available!

Published by specialist cookbook publishers Meze, it’s the latest in a series of regional cookbooks that celebrates local restaurants, food producers, delis, markets, brewers and more. In each case Meze works with a local food writer (in this case me!) to capture the spirit of each business and create profiles along with superb photography and recipes supplied from each business.

It’s been a great project for me to be involved in – giving the chance to meet and talk with many of the most passionate, creative and committed food  people in the region. The 192-page book  features  over 30 great businesses from the city centre  to rural Rutland – many of whom have been featured in this blog over the years as well as some new arrivals and older busineses that were new to me.

The book really does look beautiful and I hope is a good read as well as a storehouse of recipes. It is priced £14.95 and is available from all the businesses featured. Have a look a around for it and if you are interested please buy from them.  It should also be available from Waterstone’s and online ordering soon too for those outside the county.

  • The Leicestershire and Rutland Cookbook, written by Tim Burke,  published by Meze Publishing  £14.95 ISBN 9780992898182
