Apple: recipes from the orchard by James Rich
Published by Hardie Grant. Available here: www.smarturl.it/applebook
It is a very big month for us here at the farm, Rich’s Cider family member James Rich is launching his debut cook book, appropriately called: Apple: recipes from the orchard.
Apple is full of almost 100 recipes featuring all things apple, from Rich’s cider and apple juice, to cider vinegar and Somerset Cider Brandy too. Inspiration for the book came to James when he worked at our Cider Press restaurant when he was a teenager. Apple combines some old favourite recipes with a host of brand-new ideas.
And the book has even been given the seal of approval by chef Jamie Oliver, who said it was “a beautiful collection of recipes from a real expert – James really knows his stuff.”
Apple is a celebration of the fruit in all its forms. You’ll find Light Bites, whether that’s a nutritious breakfast of Nutty Apple Granola, or tangy Goat’s Cheese, Apple and Honey Tarts for an easy picnic lunch; Feasts soaked in cider, from a wholesome Chicken, Cider and Cheddar Crumble for supper to Braised Pork Knuckles In Cider cooked slow and steady for an added depth and enhanced flavour; Sides and Sauces where sharp and tangy flavours transform flavour combinations; Sweet Things to treat yourself with, whether it’s an Autumn Fruit Pavlova with Apple and Vanilla Cream or a refreshing Cider Sorbet on a hot day. Drinks are also not forgotten, from the summery Orchard Cocktail to the warming Cider Brandy Hot Toddy and Mulled Apple Juice with Rhubarb and Ginger.
Richs Cider had the pleasure of hosting a Somerset legend’s 80th Birthday Party this week…
We were joined by Tommy’s family, friends and band mates from the Wurzels to celebrate his birthday with music, food and plenty of cider…
Happy Birthday Tommy!
