Farmhouse Cookery is both a culinary tour of Great Britain and a celebration of regional, traditional, and contemporary cooking. Laura Mason demonstrates how landscape, climate, and culture have contributed to the wide diversity of British cooking, from the excellent Herdwick lamb in the Lake District to the justifiably famous goat's cheese of South Wales. Farming in Britain has been under increasing pressure for the last two decades. The foot and mouth crisis of 2001 threw the plight of British farmers onto an international stage. Launched in conjunction with the National Trust's "Farming Forward" campaign, Farmhouse Cookery aims to promote the excellent foodstuffs produced by British farmers.
