EATING FOR BRITAIN: WIN A SIGNED COPY (WHOO HOO)



































I am delighted to say that next week will see the publication of EATING FOR BRITAIN by John Murray.

I spent a litte over twelve months travelling to just about every corner of the U.K attempting to construct the perfect day of British eating. It was a heck of a trip and, along the way, I had the privilege of meeting farmers, chefs, restaurants owners, brewers, distillers, butchers and fishermen to name but a few.

There were a handful of things to really, really depress me about the state of food in Britain(Chicken Tikka Lasagna anyone? Nah, didn't think so). However, there was also much to be proud of (see pictures above for some of the highlights) and I returned home believing that British food is in a far better state than I imagined when I set out. We still have a long way to go, of course, but there are lots of folk out there who really do give a damn about bringing the best to our tables.

I could not get everywhere and, indeed, could not fit everyone I met in the book. But, I hope that those of you who are kind enough to pick up a copy of EATING FOR BRITAIN will at least think that I gave it a good stab and have done justice to the people I met.

SHAMELESS PLUG

The book is available on AMAZON

I do however have two signed copies to give away. To have a chance to win one all you have to do is answer the following question

WHAT IS THE PRIMARY BOTANICAL USED IN GIN?

Answers to doshermanos@doshermanos.co.uk with the subject heading EATING FOR BRITAIN BOOK

The competition closes on June 10th and I will select the winners names at random after that. I cannot enter into any correspondence with anyone, but shall inform the lucky (?) winners soon after.

Good luck and happy reading

Congratulations, sounds like you had a great time. Having vowed I would not acquire any more food books, I am now seriously tempted to enter your competition - hey ho!

British food is great - I don't really know what people complain about (except tuna and sweetcorn on pizza, which is bizarre and disgusting).
