Food for Countryside Moods


Food for Countryside Moods has its own website with all the recipes:

“Recipes inspired by the weather, season and the countryside”

The fresh air and ambience of the delightful countryside of the Peak District builds our appetites as we cross the hills, valleys and moors of one of England’s premier areas of natural beauty. The different moods of the landscape, whether it is the dark grey days of heavy mist, or the scintillating brightness of a fresh spring, engender the desire for food that responds to those moods.

The recipes drawn their originality from the countryside moods combined with the international flavours and tastes that are so much part of our modern cuisine. We present of fusion of cookery created from readily available fresh ingredients. The healthiness of walking the countryside is complemented by the carefully considered cooking methods which use tasty ingredients cooked in a light and nutritious way.

“One hundred and ten recipes each with a hint of being different.”
