This huge and beautiful book is a River Cottage encyclopedia of ingredients. With entries on vegetables, fruits, herbs, spices, meat, fish, foraged foods, dairy, oils, vinegar, and much more, it celebrates more than three hundred ingredients that the modern cook might come across.
Each ingredient is described by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall or an expert contributor from his River Cottage team. They explain how best to prepare a given ingredient, which varieties to look for, and optimum seasonality. For every entry there is a delicious recipe.
With stunning food photography and gorgeous illustrations, River Cottage A to Z is an ambitious work that will become a guide for every kitchen, as indispensable as The Fannie Farmer Cookbook.
