Suffolk chefs and Suffolk produce are at the heart of a beautiful new cookbook - Suffolk Feast: One County, Twenty Chefs
Who knew that Lola deMille, head chef at Darsham Nurseries, would have been a guinea pig breeder if not a chef, or that Tyler Torrance at the Brudenell would have tried his hand at silversmithing? Did you know that Paul Yaxley (Fox & Goose, Fressingfield) trialled for the Canaries, or that Rory Whelan at the Crown, Southwold, makes a fine plum wine?
Delve further into the foodie – and non-foodie! – lives of some of your favourite Suffolk chefs in a stunning new cookbook that champions Suffolk produce from field to table.
Suffolk Feast: One County, Twenty Chefs is packed with gorgeous photography, irresistible recipes, insightful chef interviews and a comprehensive food lovers’ guide to the county. It explores the vital relationship between chefs and their suppliers and is quite simply a must-have cookbook – and ideal Christmas gift! – for anyone who loves eating in this beautiful, bountiful region.
Written by local food writers Glyn Williams and Tessa Allingham, and with a foreword by Emma Freud, the book is a passionately enthusiastic celebration of Suffolk’s food and farming heritage, as well as the extraordinary skills of some of its chefs.
“We are blessed with some astonishing cooking talent in this county – contemporary chefs who explode with enthusiasm, dedication and a genuine understanding of the land in which they are working,” says Emma.
“Creating this book has been a thrilling foodie journey,” say Glyn and Tessa. “We are hugely grateful to every one of our 20 chefs and producers for opening their kitchen doors and farm gates to us. We hope you enjoy reading their stories, recreating the recipes and of course eating in the wonderful restaurants!”
The book will be available to buy at the 20 profiled restaurants and on sale at Aldeburgh Bookshop from late October, priced £19.95. It will also be on sale at select farmers’ markets and food retailers throughout Suffolk.Follow the publication on Twitter @suffolkfeast or go to www.suffolkfeast.co.uk for more information.
