The Lancashire Cook Book: Second Helpings celebrates the best of the county’s food scene and follows on from the best-selling first edition released in 2016, which was Booths Supermarket’s second best-selling cook book that year. Working in collaboration with Visit Lancashire to highlight the wealth of producers and passionate foodies in the region, the book showcases how the food scene has developed in the last three years, and 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.
They include The Freemasons at Wiswell from Steven Smith, named gastropub chef of the year in 2019, longstanding Lancashire favourite The Cartford Inn, award-winning local gin Cuckoo Gin from Brindle Distillery as well as the Clitheroe Food Festival and Ye Olde Sausage Shop who hold more than 50 gold awards for their sausages and superlative Food hall Holmes Mill. So whether your taste is fine dining, no nonsense hearty food or something altogether more exotic, there’s lots for you here. This is the 38th book in Meze’s hugely successful ‘Get Stuck In’ series and is expected to be among the best-selling cookery titles in the region.
