There’s no denying that our food and drink scene here in Bristol is pretty impressive. And now, there’s a new book celebrating the best of the city’s independent restaurants, cafés, pubs, delis, producers and suppliers, with the launch of The Bristol Cook Book on September 29th.
The book will be the 15th in the series of regional ‘Get Stuck In’ guides by Meze Publishing, who were recently crowned Best Newcomer at the Independent Publishing Awards.
MasterChef finalist Dean Edwards writes in the book’s foreword, “I’m a fiercely proud Bristolian so to be featured in The Bristol Cook Book is a real honour. The array of talent showcased in this book will leave your mouths watering and make sure Bristol continues to become a foodie destination for years to come.”
The Bristol Cook Book aims to “capture and promote the region’s vibrant, diverse approach to catering, with each chapter focusing on creative, delicious yet unique food and the stories behind each foodie business.”
Entries come from the likes of burger venues Three Brothers and Burger Joint, restaurants such as Lido, and traditional delicatessens including The Mall Deli and Better Food. There’s also a recipe for belly of pork with scrumpy and apple sauce from Dean Edwards and sweet treats from Ahh Toots and Pinkmans Bakery, while Corks of Cotham (and North Street!) have created a wine pairing guide for every single recipe.
Retailing at £14.95, The Bristol Cook Book will be available from every featured business from September 29th, as well as in selected local gift shops, a range of book shops including Waterstones, and online from Amazon UK. We’re looking forward to seeing it – it’s a great idea for a Christmas gift for Bristol’s foodies!
