Gather by Gill Meller
Gather showcases 120 recipes inspired by the landscapes in which I live and work. From seashore to woodland, orchard to garden, field to farm, moorland to harbour. For me this is the best kind of cooking and eating, offering simple, honest dishes made from natural, abundant foods. Gather is a celebration of British seasonal cooking at its best.
In “Gather”, Gill Meller encourages us to not only embrace our landscape through the shifting seasons, but to explore what is quietly growing out there, to enjoy it, and to turn it into something delicious. This is a truly beautiful book.
