After the huge success of The Nottingham Cook Book, Meze Publishing are thrilled to announce that they have launched second helpings!

The Nottingham Cook Book published in 2014 sold over 9,000 copies and since the food scene has come on in leaps and bounds in the last few years, Meze Publishing have decided to showcase this in their forthcoming sequel; The Nottingham Cook Book: Second Helpings.

The second edition features over 45 recipes, aiming to promote vibrant cuisines and put focus on the talented individuals behind Nottingham's finest food producers, restaurants, café, bars, pubs, farm shops, and delicatessens. Not only that, each chapter delves into the history of each local business; discover how they came about, their secret to success and what makes them unique.

This cookbook is all about championing independent businesses. It gives an insight into the creation of signature recipes and allows you to recreate them from the comfort of your own home or perhaps use it as a guide for where to eat out in Nottingham and the surrounding area.

Unique venues and eateries showcase some of their mouth-watering best loved recipes from The Welbeck Bakehouse's lemon and poppyseed brioche swirls to The Clock House Café and Tea Room at Upton Hall's eggs benedict dish. The Railway at Lowdham offers its dish of roast Cornish hake with girolle mushrooms, peas, creamed potato and roast chicken sauce, whilst Starkeys Fruit of Southwell suggest extraordinary pork with Starkey Bramleys.

You'll also find wine pairings and guidelines in the book by Mr and Mrs Fine Wine as well as a couple of cocktail recipes from Tipsy T – there is something to tempt everyone's palate!

The Nottingham Cook Book: Second Helpings retails at £14.95 and will be available at the businesses mentioned in the book. It will also be sold in local gift and book shops including Waterstones, and online at Amazon and at www.mezepublishing.co.uk.
