The Derbyshire Cook Book: Second Helpings
The Derbyshire Cook Book: Second Helpings celebrates the best of the county’s food scene and follows on from the acclaimed first edition released in 2015. Showcasing how the region’s food scene has developed in the last three years, the book features more than 40 recipes and stories from some of the region’s finest local restaurants, delis, gastro pubs, farm shops, cafes and local suppliers. It includes a foreword and recipe from Chris Mapp, owner and head chef at Barlow’s Tickled Trout, plus chapters and recipes from Chatsworth Farm Shop (part of the Chatsworth Estate), the Michelin-starred Fischer’s at Baslow, highly acclaimed restaurant/hotel Peacock at Rowsley (who also appear in the Michelin Guide), as well as cosy country pubs like The Elm Tree at Elmton and the award-winning Old Hall Inn in Chinley. There are also chapters from producers such as potted meat specialists Granny Marys, artisan cheese-makers Cow Close Farm and local ice cream aficionados Fredericks. So whether your taste is fine dining, no nonsense hearty food or something altogether more exotic, there’s lots for you here.
