The Cambridgeshire Cook Book

A few months ago I was contacted by Lisa from Meze Publishers suggesting to launch ‘The Cambridgeshire Cookery Book’. I thought, that it was an excellent idea! Not just because I am passionate about the local food scene, but putting Cambridgeshire on the food map too. Some time ago, Cambridge was labelled as the worst clone city in the UK and it has been a struggle to get rid of that label. Of course ‘us locals’ know, that Cambridge is not only an amazing cultural city and one of the top universities in the world, but it boasts many great artists, talented chefs and amazing foodie enterprises. For me, it is a full-time job to keep on top of the local food scene with all the new additions. Cambridge is becoming a foodie’s heaven. Some of the best foodie places are a hard find as they are often tucked away in small alleyways, even if you’re right in the centre close to Kings Parade.

After the successful launch of the Sheffield Cookbook, Nottinghamshire Cook Book and Derbyshire Cook Book, it is now Cambridgeshire’s turn. And everybody involved is very excited!

The Cambridgeshire Cook Book will be a real cross-section of the food scene. So people that are the best at what they do whether it’s a type of dining experience, a particular dish that they are famous for that has the people of Cambridge flocking to them, or have historical/tourism links that do great food. Unfortunately, I cannot give too much away as we like to keep some surprises in store.

Let’s share a few names to give you a flavour what’s to come. Daniel Clifford from the iconic two-star restaurant Midsummer House in Cambridge, ‘The Medicinal Chef’ Dale Pinnock and the creator of the best Pastel del Natte, Adelia from Norfolk Street Bakery, couldn’t be missed out of course, but you can find local producers in here too such as OOO company virgin olive oil.
