In this companion volume to the second 'Food Heroes' TV series, Rick Stein has compiled a directory of the best food producers, suppliers and retailers in Great Britain and Ireland. The criteria for entry are based on the quality of the produce, assessed by personal testing and experience. The book sets out to encourage readers to explore the small- scale side of food production.
With over 1,000 entries divided into nine chapters by food type, the suppliers are arranged alphabetically within each chapter by location. Entries show whether suppliers offer direct sales, mail order or internet service and those using local ingredients or traditional methods will be highlighted along with any special awards or accreditations. This is a very personal selection from one of Britain's most trusted authorities on food.
