Thirty Miles: A Local Journey in Food
While on holiday in Aberdaron on the Llyn Peninsula, the seeds of his challenge were sown. He was told he would struggle to find good food in the area, that it lacked any culinary gems...not convinced, he sought to prove this theory wrong. "Thirty Miles" offers a unique insight into the grass roots of food in the British Isles, as he explores a beautiful area of North Wales, tracking down all sources of food in the region. It is an inspired look at the people who have a deep passion for what they do, producing top quality ingredients and allowed the author an insight into their lives. It also finds him, lending a hand, catching fish, building a smokery and picking fruit from cliff tops. With over 100 easy to follow recipes, with the ingredients placed centre stage, it proves that cooking locally is possible and has many benefits. It offers both hope and a blueprint for the future of food in our country.
