This cookbook is rooted in the passion and expertise of our fellow traders at Borough Market, whose in-depth knowledge of their ingredients are second to none. Each of the book's eight chapters is devoted to a different category of stall you'll find at this historic market: fishmongers, butchers, two different sections on stalls offering cupboard ingredients (spices, pulses, dry goods), greengrocers, fruiterers, dairy, and baked goods. Their wisdom is shared via features, interviews, tips and guides that demystify unfamiliar ingredients and processes. It explains not just what to buy (and why), but how to store it, cook it and serve it. Each section includes relevant recipes by Angela Clutton, award-winning food writer, Borough Market Cookbook Club host and Borough Talks podcasts presenter. The book includes over 80 recipes, with dishes like Parsnip Gnocchi and Smoked Garlic Butter, Moong Dal Dosa with Masala Potatoes and Tomato Chutney, and Jasmine Tea Loaf with Salted Lime Butter.
