Leicestershire Food and Drink

With its historic market towns and its long history of livestock farming, Leicestershire holds an important place in the history of Britain’s food. This exploration of the county’s fare sets food and drink against the character of Leicestershire to discover how the landscape, history, and culture have shaped the county’s diet. Each chapter opens with a short appreciation of the beauties and resources of the area that have influenced that type of food or drink, before moving on to describe traditional ingredients or products and recipes for famed specialties such as the Melton Mowbray pork pie. From time-honored Stilton cheese to the traditionally brewed Baz's Bonce Blower, reputedly the strongest real ale on tap, Leicestershire has an abundance of food and drink to celebrate. This book is a delightful read and useful guide for anyone who cares about sourcing and enjoying real food and understanding the history behind it.
