In Outdoor Cooking, Gill Meller explains every aspect of cooking out in the open. He will take you back to basics with a guide to building the perfect fire, and reinvigorate your summer barbecue by cooking bread on it, grilling Indian-style kebabs, smoking fish or roasting succulent joints of meat. You can also find out how to make the most of a pizza oven or Kamado-style clay barbecue (popularised by the Big Green Egg) and, if you're feeling adventurous, there are comprehensive instructions for spit roasting larger pieces of meat or making a smouldering earth oven.
With an introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and plenty of mouth-watering photographs, this book will rekindle your passion for the great outdoors and spark new ideas for creative cooking in the wild.
Winner of the Fortnum & Mason Debut Food Book Award 2017 Nominated for the Andre Simon award for best cookbook and Guild of Food Writers book of the year. Gather is a cookbook that celebrates simplicity and nature, both in ingredients and cooking styles. Head Chef at River Cottage for 10 years, Gill Meller showcases 120 brand new recipes inspired by the landscapes in which he lives and works. Featuring chapters on foods from Moorland (game and herbs), Garden (tomatoes, salads, soft fruits), Farm (pork, dairy, honey), Field (rye, barley, wheat, oats), Seashore (crab, seaweed, oysters), Orchard (apples, pears, cherries), Harbour (fish and seafood), and Woodland (mushrooms, damsons, blackberries), Gill gently guides the reader through simple recipes, with no need for obscure ingredients or complicated cooking. With great food at its heart, Gather is the most contemporary of cookbooks, with photography that captures a year of the best cooking and eating.
Time is the highly anticipated follow-up to the award-winning Gather. In it Gill Meller distills the essence of his approach to food and cooking time spent in the kitchen, with good ingredients, makes for the best possible way of life.
Morning, daytime and night these are the touchstones of our days, and days are the markers of our years. Gill's unique dishes fit within this framework, moving through the seasons, from freshness and light, to comfort and warmth.
Gill's dishes follow the course of the day: simple breakfasts (wild mushroom & sausage chachouka, buckwheat pancakes), glorious seasonal lunches (steamed vegetables with tamari, honey & sunflower seeds, chicken with chamomile, tomato & anchovy tart, date, olive oil & fennel cake), evening gatherings in the soft glow of summer or chill of winter (lentil dhal with crispy kale, roast pheasant with parsnips & chorizo, ceviche with rhubarb, lemon & chilli, treacle tart with thyme & orange, quince & vanilla crème brûlée).
This is the best of modern British cooking, from the most exciting new voice in food writing.
Praise for Gill's previous book, Gather:
Gather does for contemporary British food what Ottolenghi has done for contemporary Middle Eastern cooking... Beautiful writing, beautiful food, this is an exquisite book that I cannot stop reading. Nigella Lawson
My book of the autumn and possibly of the year... Gather is a perfect expression of something food writers have been trying to define for the past three decades: modern British cooking. Diana Henry
Keeping a herd of pigs brings a lot of enjoyment - they are curious, intelligent and (often) lovable animals, with plenty of character. When the time comes, they can provide you with a fine carcass that can be turned into all manner of tasty things. The River Cottage ethos is all about knowing the story behind what's on the plate, and as Gill Meller explains in this accessible and comprehensive guide, by rearing and butchering your own pigs you'll be able to create a full range of delicious pork products in the most sustainable, economical and hands-on way possible. Pigs & Pork gives expert advice on choosing whether to keep your own pigs, on sourcing them and setting up their home, and on feeding and caring for them. Gill also explains how you can arrange for the pigs' eventual slaughter, and how to find a good butcher or carry out your own butchery at home and identify the different cuts of meat. And even if you are buying your pork from the butcher, there is plenty to inspire. In the mouth-watering recipe section you will find the ultimate roast pork, farmhouse pates, pork scratchings, brawn, sausages, rillettes, pork pies, Scotch eggs and black pudding, as well as instructions for how to home-cure your own bacon, ham and salami. And of course, there are guidelines for setting up a proper hog roast to cater for large numbers, River Cottage-style - simply the perfect fare for an outside gathering. Whether you are just after the secret to sensational crackling, or you want to go the whole hog and set up your own sty, this book will guide you on the road to pork heaven.
`Ingredients are at the heart of everything we do at River Cottage. By gathering our all-time favourites together, I hope to inspire you to look at them with fresh eyes and discover new ways of cooking them' Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall The definitive River Cottage kitchen companion. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and his team of experts have between them an unprecedented breadth of culinary expertise on subjects that range from fishing and foraging to bread-making, preserving, cheese-making and much more. In this volume they profile their best-loved and most-used ingredients. With more than three hundred entries covering vegetables, fruits, herbs, spices, meat, fish, fungi, foraged foods, pulses, grains, dairy, oils and vinegars, the River Cottage A to Z is a compendium of all the ingredients the resourceful modern cook might want to use in their kitchen. Each ingredient is accompanied by a delicious, simple recipe or two: there are new twists on old favourites, such as cockle and chard rarebit, North African shepherd's pie, pigeon breasts with sloe gin gravy, or damson ripple parfait, as well as inspiring ideas for less familiar ingredients, like dahl with crispy seaweed or rowan toffee. And there are recipes for all seasons: wild garlic fritters in spring; cherry, thyme and marzipan muffins for summer; an autumnal salad of venison, apple, celeriac and hazelnuts; a hearty winter warmer of ale-braised ox cheeks with parsnips. With more than 350 recipes, and brimming with advice on processes such as curing bacon and making yoghurt, the secret of perfect crackling and which apple varieties to choose for a stand-out crumble, as well as sourcing the most sustainable ingredients, this is an essential guide to cooking, eating and living well. More than anything, the River Cottage A to Z is a celebration of the amazing spectrum of produce that surrounds us - all brought to life by Simon Wheeler's atmospheric photography, and Michael Frith's evocative watercolour illustrations.
