Synopsis: Roots is a glorious celebration of the key ingredients grown, foraged and preserved by Tommy close to his award-winning restaurant, The Black Swan in Oldstead, North Yorkshire. Influenced by the rhythms of the land he farms, he renames and redefines the seasons into three growing groups and shares creative recipes, preserving techniques and ideas on using these ‘root’ ingredients all year round. Beautifully shot throughout the shifting seasons the images showcase recipes, the ingredients and the landscape from which they hail.

Watching Tommy Banks on the BBC Great British Menu was an inspiring and refreshing experience, and Roots is equally uplifting. His enthusiasm for foraging, cooking and preserving his home grown ingredients shines throughout the book. His commentary, the recipes and the beautiful photography elevates this beyond a cookbook into a celebration of a way of life. Tommy Banks’ passion for good food shines through and because of his unique approach we have chosen Roots as our Cookery Book of the Month. Highly Recommended!
