Riverford Farm Cook Book : Tales from the Fields, Recipes from the Kitchen Paperback
'What we like most is to produce foods ourselves from start to finish - from farm to table, the Riverford way.
Food should tell a story and, because we know what it is, we can tell you.' Guy Watson's ethos is simple: he wants to put fresh, flavoursome, seasonal food back onto people's plates.
In 1985, armed with a wheelbarrow and a borrowed tractor, he established his first Riverford farm in South Devon.
Since then, and largely thanks to a groundbreaking home-delivery vegetable box scheme, a small network of Riverford farms has sprung up across Britain.
Packed with tips on growing your own organic vegetables and brimming with hearty recipes from Riverford's celebrated Field Kitchen, the 'Riverford Farm Cook Book' gives an organic farmer's unique insight into great-tasting food grown with care and cooked with passion.

Review by robertgriffen
This is one of the best sources of information on seasonal vegetables I have read. The recipes are straightforward and easy to follow. The recommendations for storage of vegetables is very useful and has made buying much easier. Overall the authors are practical in their approach, avoiding fancy fashionable phrases so frequently used by 'TV' chefs.The observations made by Guy Watson throughout the book are interesting and whilst I do agree with them all, they are his genuinely held views and therefore deserve respect.This is one cookery book that will sit on the worktop rather than on a shelf.
