Review:
Most of us are apple lovers -- which is fortuitous, given that fruit’s health-giving properties. But a few basic recipes aside, how many of us can come up with really imaginative recipes to utilise this wonderful food? The Apple Source Book by Sue Clifford and Angela King is so incredibly useful in this area that one can forgive the authors the groan-inducing pun of the title. Clifford and King are members of Common Ground, a group devoted to educating us about every aspect of local food. Needless to say, the essays here on Britain's famous apple heritage are crammed full of the enthusiasm and inspiration one might expect from the authors and their prestigious team (which includes such luminaries as Lindsey Bareham, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Delia Smith), but there is also a great stress on retaining the identity of specific local varieties. Apart from the recipes (and more on those shortly), The Apple Source Book is brimming with fascinating information -- did you know that there are almost 3000 varieties of apples grown in the United Kingdom? A subject such as this does not lend itself to much illustration, and the few drawings here are basically functional. But the recipes! How about a whole roast goose accompanied by apples in quince jelly? Or roast fillet of pork with apples and cider? As this might convey, Clifford & King’s book is designed to make our salivatory buds activate, and that it certainly does. If, at times, the healthy properties of apples rather vanish under the succulent sauces involved, most people really won't give a damn. Supermarkets and local shops should prepare themselves for a rush on apples when this book achieves the popularity it undoubtedly will. (One caveat: the index is not particularly user-friendly.) --Barry Forshaw
Review:

'Lovely treasury of all things appley'

(Bookseller)

'Long awaited . . . both a hymn to the diversity of the fruit and an invaluable supply of anecdote, fact and recipe'

(Nigel Slater, Observer)

'A quite remarkable book . . . a sort of all-in-one apple enthusiasts kit, containing everything from a raft of celebrity apple recipes and hints on cider-making, to a gazetteer of where you can find your Ribston pippin and your Blenheim orange.'

(Michael McCarthy, Independent)

'Delightful'

(Glasgow Herald)

'Apple lovers of all shapes and sizes will adore this homage to our most famous fruit'

(Good Book Guide)

'An invaluable new point of reference . . . this informative and beautifully crafted book will open your eyes. This is a book that deserves pride of place on the coffee table as much as it does the kitchen.'

(Country File Magazine)

'This wonderful book will inspire you to buy, cook and grow some of the 3,000 or so varieties which exist in Britain.'

(National Trust Magazine)

WorldofBooks
(Goring-By-Sea, WS, United Kingdom)

Book Description Paperback. Condition: Good. Launched in 1990, Apple Day is celebrated in more than 600 events around the country and abroad. Now with Apple Day 'coming of age' 18 years after its birth, The Apple Source Book is a celebration of the 2,000 or more varieties of apple we can grow in these islands, with their distinctive flavours, uses, places of origin stories and associated customs. It is a wealth of information including recipes, a county gazetteer of apple varieties, specialist nurseries, suppliers of fruit, orchard groups, as well as Apple Day ideas such as wassailing, juice pressing and cider making. In this lovingly compiled treasure trove of a book, you can enjoy the richness and variety of Britain's most fascinating and little-known traditions. Taking the apple as a symbol of the physical, cultural and genetic diversity that we should not let slip away, The Apple Source Book shows just how important variety and richness are to our local communities, and demonstrates that you can make a difference. Written and designed with the combination of style and innovation that made England in Particular such a success, The Apple Source Book will change the way you look at apples forever. The book has been read but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact and the cover is intact. Some minor wear to the spine. Seller Inventory # GOR003284496
