National Trust Favourite Recipes


The National Trust's cafés are a British institution, enjoyed by the millions of people who visit its historic houses and sites every year. For some, a stop at the café is a bonus; for others, it's the main event. Either way, it promises delicious, hearty food that tastes like the very best home cooking. 

Over 80 of the recipes are in this book. Starters, mains, salads, desserts - everything you need. Recipes include: wild mushroom & barley soup; chicken, leek & tarragon pie; spring vegetable risotto; sausage & fennel seed pasta with spinach; spiced apple & plum crumble; rhubarb & ginger cheesecake. 

It's not just the classics and favourites that you might expect, but twists and new takes too - whether it's unusual ingredients (for example lemon & thyme sprouts; pea and mint scotch egg) or vegetarian and vegan options (chili non-carne; vegan pasty; vegan chocolate fudge cake). The recipes highlight seasonality and sustainability throughout – the National Trust's cafés are at the forefront of both areas.
