Showing just this, The Bath Cook Book is the latest instalment in Meze Publishing’s Get Stuck In series which consists of a variety of regional cookbooks bringing together hidden haunts from cites across the UK. Inside their latest publication you’ll find over thirty recipes from local suppliers, restaurants, and eateries in Bath. From sophisticated cuisines of The Dower House or the Fat Fowl, to the hearty, traditional food styling of The Long Arms and Redan Inn, there is an abundance of meal inspiration. The Head Chef of the Dower House restaurant, David Campbell, also pens a few of his own entries sharing his passion and excitement of Bath’s food hub.
All of the articles promote the versatility of food and drink that Bath has to offer. The recipes themselves are easy to follow and can be made in no time at all. They range from Iced Apple Parfait, to Taste Food’s Ploughman’s Scotch Egg – a wonderfully west country twist on the picnic staple. The book also spotlights local craft ciders and even has the recipe to make the perfect Bath gin and tonic! Local wine dealer Novel Wines saves you the trouble of pairing your food with the perfect wine, giving us recommendations of their own for each recipe.
