It’s not often that Jamie Oliver and Marco Pierre White recipes are both to be found beneath the cover of the same glossy cook book . But of course as you would expect, the brand new Liverpool Cook Book is no ordinary collection of recipes.
Liverpool has changed rapidly in recent years and is now one of the most food-savvy destinations outside of London, with both Jamie and Marco opening restaurants in the city and joining an established stable of high-quality, critically acclaimed eateries.
Whilst The Liverpool Cook Book has all the ingredients of a modern recipe book, it serves up much more, whetting the appetite with a real taste of the vibrancy that has shaped the city as a diverse multi-cultural hotpot of flavours.
From the farmers markets, generations of potted shrimpers, chocolatiers, and keepers of legendary home-made ice cream recipes to the Michelin star chefs and the feeders of Princes and Prime Ministers, there are dishes for every palette.
Featuring over 100 recipes, and with exclusives from Jamie Oliver and Marco Pierre White along with Liverpool celebrities, including the 2009 BBC Masterchef winner, Liz McClarnon, the book also explores how readers can get their hands on the delicious home grown produce that feeds the top restaurants, to use in their own dishes.
Also drawing inspiration from the latest delis and the trendiest foodies in town, it celebrates a world in one city, and is a must for anyone who loves food, and loves Liverpool.
The Liverpool Cook Book will be launched at the 2010 Liverpool Food & Drink Festival launch day in Sefton Park, Sunday 12th September from 10.30am – 5.00pm.
