This collection offers more than 100 recipes for British seasonal dishes, ranging from classics like Steak and Ale Pie to to newer favorites like Pumpkin Pearl Barley Risotto and Vegetable Tagine. Desserts range from scones (of which the National Trust sell millions and particularly pride themselves) to Ginger and Satsuma Cake and Orange and Poppyseed Cake. Many of the recipes use ingredients sourced from the National Trust's kitchen gardens and farms and so make the most of the fresh summer peas or autumnal squashes.
The book also features recipes that are linked to National Trust places, such as the hearty beef stew enjoyed by Churchill at Chartwell, Agatha Christie's favorite Lobster Bisque which she ate at Greenway, or the Plum Cake recipe handed down to Beatrix Potter from her mother. Includes dual measures."
