What book would you recommend for a good winter read?

By Heather 12 years ago

Richard – It has to be “The River Cottage Fish Book” by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Nick Fisher. This mighty tomb is described as “The definitive guide to fish and fish cooking”. Richard first met Nick, the writer and presenter of Screaming Reels, on a “Hugh and Friends Night” at River Cottage HQ in rural Dorset and has managed to secure 10 signed copies of the book which will be on sale very shortly at Wiggly Wigglers.

ps Richard contributed two fishy pictures to the project a Perch (p. 523) and a Zander (p. 537).

Heather – Undoubtedly it would be “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” by Michael Pollan which takes a good hard look at the food we put on our plates. Heather believes, “It’s a book that will change your life forever”

Rach – Definitely Terry Walton’s book, “My Life on a Hillside Allotment”, which is a really interesting and highly entertaining read. The book follows Terry’s exploits down on the allotment from a very young age, when he gardened with his father, through to the present day. It’s a really easy read with some great tips from Terry and recipe ideas from his wife.

Hannah – Hannah is currently reading the beautifully written, “Flower Confidential” by Amy Stewart, which is described by the publishers as a “behind-the-scenes look at the flower industry”. Hannah says it is of particular interest to her now she is responsible for growing flowers up at the cutting patch for the Wiggly bouquets.
