River Cottage everyday - a recommendation
Whilst shopping at Booths in Ripon today, I was waiting in the "10 items and under queue" and found this recommendation, and I was so pleased that I bought the book (£8 off cover price to boot):
"Pepper and other spices
Spices remain exotic ingredients - precious, fragrant substances that that must be imported from regions of the world more lush and tropical than our own. These days, it's easy to find excellent examples, grown in a way that's respectful to the environment - and traded in a way that's respectful to the grower, too. Fairtrade and organic spices are available in many supermarkets and delis but it's online that you'll find the greatest variety - try www.steenbergs.co.uk."
The quote is taken from p 16 of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's latest cookbook "River Cottage everyday" - that's a recommendation that's fine by me.
