A celebration of the Ambridge year through recipes and farming.
From the fabled kitchens of Jill Archer and Jennifer Aldridge to the kitchen of celebrity chef Ian Craig, readers will learn how to make Keira Grundy’s award-winning Fruity Llama, Helen Archer’s recipe for Tuna Bake (and how to serve it; revenge is a dish best served cold) and Freddie’s Porridge tips.
Month-by-month, we take a journey round The Archers world to learn more of its farming year and those big events in the Ambridge calendar: Shrove Tuesday & Lent, lambing, Open Farm Sunday, the village fete, Apple Day, the harvest, Stir-up Sunday and Deck the Hall.
Full to the brim with Ambridge life and gossip, The Archers: A Year of Food and Farming lifts the lid on village life and takes the reader deeper into the daily show.
In a world where farming and rural life is changing, where life presents challenges as well as being part of the rural idyll, this will be a book that celebrates the British countryside. Rural traditions are alive and well in The Archers, but it’s a contemporary world that is full of warmth, wit and the unexpected.
