North West bring us....

The North West brings an influx of tangible dishes, meals you can really get involved in and have a go at. In a book such as this where many chefs can show off their skills it was inevitable we would find ourselves with many dishes virtually impossible to prepare in the average household kitchen. This is an incredible thing to see and read, but as many of you will be keen cooks it is frustrating when you cannot actually make a full dish.

Here in the North West you can, there are many dishes here to be made an enjoyed in any kitchen. Such a variety as well from Marmite Chicken to Treacle cured Salmon, there is a real mix of unusual flavours and ideas.

To finish off this section we are joined by Soap Star come cheesemonger Sean Wilson who no doubt you all recognise as Martin Platt from Coronation Street. Sean is now an established Chef and Cheese maker in the Yorkshire dales and has shared his experience with us in an in depth feature on locally produced cheese.

Wales brings us .....

The Welsh section of the cookbook has been a massive success with some fantastic dishes being submitted into the book by some exceptional chefs. Luke Thomas, Signatures Restaurant, Chateau Rhianfa and Bistro Prego are just some of the exemplary chefs and restaurants involved in this section.

Luke Thomas, at only twenty years of age, is certainly one of the younger chefs in the book but you wouldn’t tell by the fantastic recipe that he has in the book. The ‘Sautéed Chicken Livers’ is a dish of real class and mouth watering flavours, which is easily available for you all to try.

Bistro Prego have a beautifully golden ‘Roast Partridge’ in The Great British Cookbook. This is the kind of dish that would be a wonderful replacement for you Christmas dinner if you fancied something a little different. The image alone is enough to make you want to try it.

Are you planning on having a dish for an alternative Christmas dinner? Or have just tried a dish because it looked good? Then let us know on our Twitter @GBCookbook.

East Midlands brings us.....

As many of you may know the East Midlands is very close to our heart, in fact it is our home. The Great British Cookbook offices are based in Nottingham and the majority of a staff base heralds from the area so we know the restaurants and chefs.

Deciding who would be in the book for this section was an exciting process, we chose places that represent this area and show off the creativity of the East Midlands and Nottingham especially. The Local Produce features in this section were especially exciting as they feature Nottinghams Famous Butcher Johnny Pusztai, a great friend of ours and an incredible character in the city. We also worked with his supplier, Richard from The Woodside Farm in Wellow, this is a stunning farm and we had a fantastic day watching the piglets run around squealing.

As mentioned we know many of the restaurants in this area so it was a really exciting process to pick them out for the book. Being from the midlands these restaurants are a really eclectic mix of flavours and dishes from not just around the UK but pulling influences from around the World.

If you are local to the area make sure you visit these incredible restaurants and enjoy a really unique dining experience.

Central England brings us......

Central England is also represented in The Great British Cookbook and they certainly haven’t disappointed. Some great dishes and recipes by Ellenborough Park, The Fuzzy Duck, The Bulls Head, The Wood Norton and many others have really shown what Central England can produce in the food world.

Stirrups Restaurant have created a ‘Blow Touched Mackerel’ dish that tastes just as fresh as it looks. This wonderful fish dish is a great recipe and is something that we would highly recommend that you try.

‘Baked Spice Plums’ by The Queens, is another great recipe in the Central England section. This dessert is a fantastic way to wrap up a meal over this festive period. The juicy plums top with spices are light yet very satisfying pudding.

Have you tried any of the recipes from Central England? What did you think to them? We’d love to hear from you, so please contact us via Twitter @GBCookbook.

South West brings us.....

The South West of England is another region that we are proud to have in The Great British Cookbook. With massively renowned chefs, Rick Stein OBE and Michael Caines MBE, it is certainly not a region to miss out on. Not only do we have these two chefs, we also have a range of great restaurants that are also involved, The Ethicurean, Millbrook Inn, Weighbridge Brew House and more.

Rick Stein has included a delightful starter of Goujons of Lemon Sole. The goujons are coated with parmesan breadcrumbs and are a fantastic starter for any meal and are certain to make you want them again and again.

Michael Caines has also inputted a starter to the cookbook which is ‘Pan-fried Brixham Scallops’. If you are a lover of scallops or just want to try them for the first time, then this is definitely a recipe you should try. There’s no better place to start than right at the very top, is there?

The South West of England has certainly delivered some terrific dishes. If you have tried any of these, how did you get on? Did you enjoy the recipe? Please get in touch through of Twitter @GBCookbook.
