Ed Smith Cooks from The Borough Market Cookbook: Fruit & Veg on Thursday 18th October 2018
Borough Market is celebrating the launch of The Borough Market Cookbook: Recipes and stories from a year at the Market with a series of live cooking demonstrations by the book’s author Ed Smith, on Thursdays throughout October in its Market Hall Demonstration Kitchen. Each week will see Ed joined by traders to showcase delicious seasonal recipes inspired by the wealth of produce on sale at Borough Market.
For over 1000 years, Borough has served the people of London. Today, this iconic market is the source of the finest in fresh, unique and exciting ingredients from traders who know their craft and produce inside out. The Borough Market Cookbook, published by Hodder & Stoughton will be available in the Market and from book retailers from October 4th, and takes the reader on a tour of the four seasons of Borough, from Apple Day in October, to the switching on of the Christmas lights, to Easter and Midsummer, accompanied by the most delicious seasonal recipes highlighting the very best of the traders produce.
Visitors to the Market can head to the iconic glass structure of the Market Hall and get culinary inspiration from Ed, a regular contributor to Borough Market's website and Market Life magazine. Using seasonal ingredients from traders at Borough Market, Ed will prepare recipes both inspired by, and taken directly from, the book - ranging from the Borough Market toastie to Autumn panzanella, duck tacos and Comte souffle. Visitors will be able to purchase the cookbook direct from the Market on the day - Ed will be on hand for personal signings - enabling them to buy the necessary ingredients from traders and recreate the dishes at home.
No cooking demonstration would be complete without a tasting, and the audience will be able to sample the delicious dishes after watching them being cooked.
Ed will focus on a different produce category within the Market each week, with selected traders from each joining Ed on stage to share their knowledge. Menus will include:
18th October - Fruit & Vegetables: Fred Foster from Turnips will be joining Ed to make Winter squash, sage and curd, autumn panzanella, tarragon mushrooms on toast and apple mille feuille.
