Fancy a sneaky peak inside the hottest (and prettiest) cookbook to come out of Devon? Oh how good we are to you...
It’s no secret that we like to scoff and drink our way around Devon’s most enticing foodie destinations; and recently this little beauty has caught my eye propping up the bars and shelves of seemingly everywhere I’ve been. If you’ve been spotting it out and about, too, then call it a stamp of quality, because you’ll more than likely find that the restaurant or cafe you’re in has been featured within its pretty pages.
The Devon Cook Book is basically a celebration of all the very best of the region’s indie food and drink scene and you should totally snaffle one for yourself. You’ll find features and recipes from pubs, restaurants, cafes and deli’s, as well as a hefty input from our best suppliers and super chefs.
We’ve spied some recipes from Muddy faves in there, including fresh fruit ice lolly supremo’s Olly Lolly, Exeter Cookery School and, a brand new addition joining the Muddy Little Black Book, Harry’s in Exeter.
A collaboration between Meze Publishing and Food & Drink Devon, there’s plenty of inspo to get in the kitchen, as well as get out and explore a new place to eat. With over 45 destinations featured, you’re likely to discover somewhere you’re yet to try, or be tempted to revisit an old classic. Either way, you can confidently eat your way around Devon with this trusty guide.
It’s a lovely addition to the coffee table, too, since the photography captures the essence of what it’s like to live, grow, work and feast in our beaut of a county (smug, us?). So whether you’re a foodie fan, or you’ve friends out of the county who have a love affair with Devon, this one’s worth investing in. Happy drooling, folks!
