 About the Book 

If you ask someone to name some famous Norfolk foods, they would probably not have any difficulty in coming up with sugar beet, maybe, or turkeys, mustard or chocolate. If that someone was keen on history they may say, Cromer crabs, YarmouthMoreIf you ask someone to name some famous Norfolk foods, they would probably not have any difficulty in coming up with sugar beet, maybe, or turkeys, mustard or chocolate. If that someone was keen on history they may say, Cromer crabs, Yarmouth bloaters and Caister dumplings. The region is similarly blessed with some nationally famous names - Delia Smith, Galton Blackiston or Bob Flowerdew, for example. Likewise festivals, events and markets have attracted the attention of foodies worldwide, and yet there is so much more to the story too as the authors relate... This book was inspired in no small part by a wander around the Bidwell/EDP Norfolk Food Festival. Here we saw the best organic veggies, duck eggs, pork pies, Aberdeen Angus beefsteaks, artisan breads and cakes, fruits, juices, jams, pickles, butter, cheeses, milks, poultry, honey, lamb and pork, crabs, lobsters and vegetarian wonders. We had the idea of a visit to some of the best of our present generation of food specialists. There were so many questions. Armed with a camera and notebook, we set out by car, oftentimes resorting to tramping across tracks and fields, to discover some of the answers. Here, gloriously illustrated by Daniels photography, is a tribute to all those who specialise in local food production, a snapshot of their lives and work, and their chosen recipes.
