The Farm Table

The Sunday Times Bestseller.

the farm tableTimes are tough and it’s more important than ever that we take advantage of seasonal produce. First-generation farmer and chef Julius Roberts shares his personal experience of farming life and easy, thoughtful dishes to reconnect us to nature and the seasons in The Farm Table.

Passionate about seasonality, Julius shows us how to make the most of local produce. These fresh foods are at their best and great value for money, so it makes sense to take advantage of them. Making the most of simple ingredients, The Farm Table is a refreshingly practical home cooking book with recipes to tempt the whole family.

‘A heart-warming and uplifting book. The recipes are utterly gorgeous,’ says Nigel Slater. That is something of an accolade! Those recipes include: Winter: an elegant, fuss-free dinner of roast pumpkin, mozzarella, hazelnuts and sage, and a hearty sausage stew; Spring: Baked fish with herbs and asparagus, chicken roasted over lemon, fennel and potatoes, and a lamb stew with pearl barley; Summer: Courgette pasta, a ratatouille galette, and a steamed apricot sponge; Autumn: smoked haddock and leek rarebit, and pan-fried trout with mash and spinach sauce.

The Farm Table is a delight and perhaps one of my favourite books published in 2023. One doesn’t need to be a farmer – all ingredients can be easily found in your local supermarket or at the bottom of your garden. A perfect gift for the home cook and any keen fruit and veg grower.
