The Borough Market Cookbook

Like the market, the book is exciting, instructive, seductive and inspirational.’ Claudia Roden

An essential gift for the keen cook in your life.

Borough Market is the beating heart of London’s food scene. Every year millions of locals and tourists flock to Borough Market to soak up the unique atmosphere, interact with the expert traders and sample the world-class produce.

This gorgeous book takes you on a tour of a year at the Market, from the beginning of spring, through Easter and Midsummer, to Apple Day in October and the switching on of the lights at Christmas – with the most delicious recipes highlighting the very best of those celebrations.

Divided by season, each recipe celebrates at least one hero ingredient from that time of year: why not try Chilled asparagus soup in spring; Rolled pork belly and sticky nectarines in summer; Beetroot dal in autumn; or Clementine sponges with cranberry sauce in winter? Along the way, you’ll be introduced to key seasonal ingredients with shopping and preparation tips, straight from the artisan producers, that will change how you cook for ever.

Packed full of beautiful photography, much of it shot on location at Borough throughout the year, this is a cookbook that will inspire food lovers and home cooks everywhere, even if they only follow Borough Market from afar.

THE PERFECT SPRING MENU
Globe artichokes with lemon and herb butter
One of the easiest and best ways to enjoy an artichoke is to cook and consume the whole thing – dip the petals into the herby butter and suck them as you work your way towards the tender heart in the middle.

Lamb meatballs in pea and herb broth
Perfect for this time of year: minted lamb meatballs in a light broth, studded with sweet sugar snap and mangetout peas.

Mango and passion fruit posset
An irresistible combination of sweet mango and sharp passion fruit, this posset is even more enjoyable if served with a buttery biscuit or tuile.

Reviews

This glorious celebration of the vibrant buzzing community of traders and producers, of their high-quality products, values and ethos, and the pure simple joy of delicious seasonal cooking makes me want to run to the maze of alleys under the railway arches and run quickly back home to cook.
Claudia Roden
This book is a rare gem: a bible in the kitchen, a brilliant guide to using seasonal produce and a great pleasure to read.
Meera Sodha, author of Made in India and Fresh India
Borough Market has played an important role in the development of British food culture. By allowing a relationship to develop between citizens and food producers, its rise has marked a new beginning for British production. Going into the Market means meeting the producers, talking to them, hearing their stories. It is a place that offers so much: history, integrity, wonderful food and the chance to really understand what you're eating. By respecting tradition, promoting sustainability and revelling in the love of good food, Borough Market provides a true representation of the philosophy of Slow Food.
Carlo Petrini, founder and president of Slow Food
Borough is one of the great European food markets, sitting proudly alongside La Boqueria in Barcelona, Testaccio in Rome and Cours Saleya in Nice. I always get a thrill when I visit, whether it's to grab an armful of puntarelle or to indulge in a Kappacasein melted cheese sandwich. The Borough Market Cookbook brings that excitement to life with a remarkable chronicle of the market's origins a thousand years ago to its renaissance in the 1990s. I loved the joyful recipes and the engaging storytelling; it's essential reading for anyone interested in food.
Russell Norman, restaurateur and food writer
