The Food & Company Cook Book is all about real honest cooking, drawing on years of experience in catering and cookery demonstrations alongside a great appreciation for local produce in the authors’ native Cumbria. Joan Gate and Margaret Brough are sisters and farmer’s daughters who have been in business together for over 30 years. Their skills, knowledge and love of food all come together in these pages, sharing tried and tested recipes alongside stories of their journey up to now. The book also features a foreword by Melvyn Bragg, who describes it as “in a class of its own”, and 90 ideas to take you right through the year in food. A font of knowledge for home cooks of all ages to treasure, and a celebration of home cooking from the heart.
