Carolyn and Chris Caldicott have travelled the world in pursuit of delicious food. In this book they come home to explore the long-overlooked delights of traditional British cooking. Tried and tested recipes, some with a twist, combine with a stylish evocation of the nation's style; pubs, country lanes, sweet peas in a jar and bracing Sunday walks.
Alongside the perfect bacon butty, or an old family recipe for marmalade, there are fascinating historical titbits - did you know that the Romans introduced rabbits to the British Isles as a food source, or that flocks of Turkeys used to be walked from East Anglia to London?
Roll up for the Traditional Sunday Roast, a Ploughman’s Lunch, Cauliflower Cheese, a Fish Supper, Steak and Kidney Pudding, Jam Roly-Poly and more!
