The NFU (National Farmers Union) have launched a cookbook to encourage people to cook from scratch.
There is something brewing in the air when it comes to highlighting the great importance of British food.
With campaigns such as #BritishFoodFortnight and #LoveLambWeek successfully championing their message, the farming industry needs to continue the positive momentum.
The NFU (National Farmers Union) have launched their brand new cookbook, "Countryside Kitchen: Farm, Food, Fork", emphasising provenance, farming and British, seasonal ingredients.
With an array of 77 recipes, the book features the stories behind the food too, focusing on the farmer as well what they produce.
The aim is to try and connect the public to farming.
Using producers from across the country, the book also includes a foreward from Countryfile producer Adam Henson who acknowledges the hard work that goes in to British agriculture and to go back to using the seasons.
NFU President, Meurig Raymond said: ““British farmers produce some of the most delicious and diverse food in the world while adhering to Red Tractor standards. This is to ensure the very best in traceability, environmental protection, food safety and hygiene and animal welfare standards.
“The food and farming industry contributes more than £100 billion to the national economy and provides jobs for around four million people.
“The British public more than ever want to know the story of where their food comes from; how it’s grown and raised, where it’s been.
“The NFU’s Countryside Kitchen recipe book helps people to reconnect with their food and gives them an insight into the lives of the people who work so hard to put food on our tables.
“By cooking with seasonal British produce the public are supporting British farmers who are the backbone of our rural communities and stewards of our beautiful countryside.”
