Gloucestershire is a large county, rich in food and drink heritage. Famous for Double Gloucester cheese and the cheese rolling event, Old Spot pigs, cider and the birthplace of prominent tea merchant Thomas Twining, Gloucestershire’s culinary history is both colourful and diverse. Nutcrack Sunday and Puppy Dog Pie (don’t worry, it hasn’t always been made from cute canines), ancient markets and progressive agriculturists represent just a few of the many interesting stories that contribute to this county’s food and drink narrative.
In this book Emma Kay looks at the regional fare and dishes that have characterised Gloucestershire over the years, as well as its food and drink markets and famous producers and cooks. Stinking Bishops and Spotty Pigs: Gloucestershire’s Food and Drink will appeal to all those who are interested in the history of Gloucestershire and its food and drink heritage.
