I received a delightful gift of the above book. It really is a treasure trove of apple knowledge and includes information on apple varieties and their origin, recipes from over fifty chefs, food writers and gardeners as well how to attract wildlife to your orchard. It really is the bible of all things apple and is a worthy addition to any book collection.
Do not expect lots of glossy colour pictures though, as the authors have gone for a tasteful use of black and white illustrations
I love the fact that the book was launched at the fabulous Petersham Nurseries (October 2007) and to celebrate it the restaurant did a collection of mouth watering recipes including, Salad of Cooked Beetroot, Kohlrabi and Wykens Pippen, Chicory and Gorgonzola dressing.
So for 2010 I can see plenty of apple dishes on the menu
