An essential gift for the keen cook in your life.

Borough Market is the beating heart of London’s food scene. Every year millions of locals and tourists flock to Borough Market to soak up the unique atmosphere, interact with the expert traders and sample the world-class produce.

This gorgeous book takes you on a tour of a year at the Market, from the beginning of spring, through Easter and Midsummer, to Apple Day in October and the switching on of the lights at Christmas – with the most delicious recipes highlighting the very best of those celebrations.

Divided by season, each recipe celebrates at least one hero ingredient from that time of year: why not try Chilled asparagus soup in spring; Rolled pork belly and sticky nectarines in summer; Beetroot dal in autumn; or Clementine sponges with cranberry sauce in winter? Along the way, you’ll be introduced to key seasonal ingredients with shopping and preparation tips, straight from the artisan producers, that will change how you cook for ever.

Packed full of beautiful photography, much of it shot on location at Borough throughout the year, this is a cookbook that will inspire food lovers and home cooks everywhere, even if they only follow Borough Market from afar.

THE PERFECT SPRING MENU
Globe artichokes with lemon and herb butter
One of the easiest and best ways to enjoy an artichoke is to cook and consume the whole thing – dip the petals into the herby butter and suck them as you work your way towards the tender heart in the middle.

Lamb meatballs in pea and herb broth
Perfect for this time of year: minted lamb meatballs in a light broth, studded with sweet sugar snap and mangetout peas.

Mango and passion fruit posset
An irresistible combination of sweet mango and sharp passion fruit, this posset is even more enjoyable if served with a buttery biscuit or tuile.

A seasonal go-to Bought 3 of these (2 as presents) after my friend cooked me a dish from it last week.

Yes there are bits speaking about the market and interviews with Borough’s traders but the book feels more like a celebration of…

Really delicious and different recipes for all the seasons. This book gives a completely fresh take on cooking across seasons using seasonal ingredients. It doesn’t matter if you are not based near Borough Market as you can still get hold of the necessary ingredients. I love the stories and essays about the different characters who make up the market as much as the recipes themselves. Although I have only had the book a few weeks, it has already become a firm favourite to cook from.

‘This wonderful book is the ultimate reflection of the spirit of the market’ …That being the final quote on the back cover, from CARLO PETRINI, founder & president of ‘Slow Food’…simply but adequately summing up this beautifully presented book and, for me, the best BLACK FRIDAY bargain this year!Initially captured by the snatch provided by the current LOOK INSIDE facility above, I needed no other persuasion and have already signed up for the weekly newsletter with recipes, features, news & events (page 319 refers).Of course, going there is the…
