Ready Steady Cook favourite Phil Vickery has travelled all over Britain seeking out our best food, the farmers who grow it and the producers who turn it into everything from stilton to clotted cream to smoked salmon. Phil introduces us to some of the people who catch our fish, grow our veg and farm our meat, and offers his own favourite 130 recipes using their produce. Top food photographer Steve Lee travelled with Phil, and together they have created an extraordinary collection of recipes, stories and photographs.
Phil Vickery has been wowing the audiences of Ready Steady Cook for many years. As resident chef on This Morning he inspired mums all over the country, but it was his series highlighting Britain's food heroes, A Taste of Britain, that really cemented his role as a presenter as well as a chef. Phil has written several books, including Proof of the Pudding, which was shortlisted for an Andr Simon award. Phil was chef-director at The Castle in Taunton, where he was awarded a Michelin star for 4 successive years.
