Giveaway: The Manchester Cookbook

The Manchester Cookbook
I've been leafing through this little beauty over the last couple of days; I love it already. The Manchester Cookbook is a brilliant idea. It's packed with recipes and stories from 55 local restaurants, caf├ęs, delicatessens, pubs, producers and suppliers. Contributor Aiden Byrne said “The vibe in and around Manchester is electric, the sense of positivity is contagious and the number of restaurants that are opening is proof of this.” Yes Aiden, we are indeed a city of cocktail drinking, food loving folk, who occasionally love to cook at home too.

Whether you live in Manchester or not, this is a little corker. If you are a native to the city, you'll adore this book, which is packed with recipes from some of your favourite restaurants, if not, it'll make you want to visit then recreate some of these dishes in your own kitchen. I'm already planning to make my own corned beef in an ode to Mr Thomas' Chop House! If you've never tried it, I must insist you correct this. Other highlights include The Dish Ran Away with the Spoon's Eton Mess Cake, and some some of Harvey Nic's favourite cocktails (see pics below).

What's even better is that I have three copies to give away! That's right, you could win one of your very own. It's currently sold out, but I'm assured more will be on their merry little way, very soon indeed.

  26. I'v always loved Eccles cakes - especially when my grandma served them for tea on a Saturday afternoon, probably just about the time of the football results on bbc :)

  27. Only ever eaten in The Trafford Centre, so don't think that really counts! Love getting goody inspiration, and this book sounds really interesting. I don't live too far from Manchester, so if there was something that really stood out, I would be tempted to visit the place where the recipe originated.
