When we think of the English countryside, we think of three things–a stunning landscape, amazing foods, and friendly locals. All these come together in Made in Shropshire, a culinary survey of the bucolic district on the Welsh border. Here, you’ll find recipes and stories from local chefs, producers, cooks, and farmers–some of which come from family businesses that opened more than 150 years ago–presented with loving affection.
If you’re a lover of classic English recipes, you’ll be enticed by the likes of beef & blue pie with suet crust; elderflower and gooseberry naked sponge; and caramelized carrot chutney with Mr. Galbraith’s dirty carrots. If you’d like to be slightly more adventurous, there are also recipes for masala magic mixed vegetable curry with cashew nuts as well as monkfish cheeks with a soy caramel glaze, pork bon bons and apple miso puree. This is a fond tribute to one of England’s archetypal countrysides.
