TOO MANY COOKS RAISE MONEY FOR CHARITY

Media call; The Great British on-line Cook Book is being launched at Nottingham Castle on Thursday 20th November 2014. Please arrive 7pm Nottingham Castle, Casple Place, Nottingham NG1 6EL

A nationwide search has taken place to find 200 different and diverse dishes from regions around Great Britain. The book will be a celebration of this diversified nation with a variety of chefs, styles and foods to thrill any pallet.

There will be 20 recipes from each of the ten areas of the Great British isles which include London and the South, North West,  Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to name a few, featuring restaurants and Chefs with a dish well worth sharing.  An essential ethos for the book was not purely to feature AA Rosette or Michelin Star Restaurants and Chefs but to cover a range of different venues that are passionate about food and use innovative and inspiring recipes with local produce.

The book has been joined by some real household names such as; Rick Stein, Michael Caines and Nigella Lawson to name but a few.

Gary Allen, Project Director for the book said; “We wanted to combine our love of food with some of the amazing chefs and food producers we have come across through the years of working in the industry. The book has a real commitment to raising awareness on using local and sustainable produce where possible just like some of the reader’s favourite chefs and restaurants do. All sales from the book will be donated to Macmillian Cancer support and Hospitality Action.”   

Adam Simmonds, the books ambassador and Great British Menu winner 2014 is a huge supporter of the book; “When the guys first came to me a few years ago I knew nothing of that magnitude had been done before and was instantly hooked on the concept, the support from the chef world has been truly amazing!”

The book will feature 50 starters, 100 mains and 50 desserts as well as ten in depth features of unique and traditional trades in the UK. The areas covered include butchery, fishmongery, baking, home grown produce, wine and beer and there will be a rare insight into how these traditional trades work in our modern world.  Readers will be taken on a food journey through a culinary array of cooking techniques, flavours and origins of produce without having to leave the book.

Readers will also get the chance to vote for their favourite recipe/dish through Twitter and Facebook.  The venue which has received the most votes will win their very own on-line cook book in 2015 worth 30,000.

The Great British on-line Cook Book goes on sale later this year and will be available from all the main on-line shopping sites.
