Enjoy the comforts of the English countryside with 100 seasonal recipes to savor throughout the year and thoughtful essays about living farm-to-table—from British chef-turned-farmer Julius Roberts.
Professionally trained chef Julius Roberts left a busy and frantic London restaurant life to pursue his dream of living sustainably on a small farm in the English countryside. The Farm Table transports us to his farmstead, taking us through a calendar year with diary entries and images grounded in the natural world. We take joy in reading about new goats and sheep being born, learn to grow some vegetables, and forage for simple herbs and flowers, all while discovering Julius's outstanding recipes.
Broken into sections based on the season, The Farm Table encourages cooking with seasonality in mind through scrumptious recipes to inspire joy and confidence in the kitchen.
- Fall: Braised Pumpkin with Sage and Hazelnuts; Plum and Fig Leaf Jam
- Winter: Chicory Tart Tartin with Thyme and Cheese; Slow Cooked Squid with Saffron and Chickpeas
- Spring: Spicy Green Salad with Nuts and Pecorino; Barbequed Wild Quail with Garlic Butter and Tahini Sauce
- Summer: Squash Blossom Ravioli; Fire Grilled Plums with Brandy, Labneh, and Mint
Combining honest tales from farming life, delicious home-cooked recipes, and stunning photography of the Dorset countryside and coast, The Farm Table encourages us to embrace the pace of a slower life, take inspiration and delight from nature, and always gather around the table to enjoy the journey.
