FARMER CHRISTMAS: LOCAL GIFTS

For the first time, we're offering a range of gifts just for Christmas. We've tried to find really lovely things from people who already have a strong connection to Cambridge Organic. So we have jams and Chrismtas decorations from the Propects Trust, who've supplied us with organic produce from their charity farm for many years; we have more jams and preserves from long-standing veg-box member, Heather Sturman's Fen End range; we've the new cookbook from one of Cambridge Organic's best friends, Rosie Sykes; and two great hampers from our local shop, the award-winning Country Kitchen in Haslingfield.

The Sunday Night Book by Rosie Sykes

Local chef and food writer, Rosie Sykes is one of Cambridge Organic's best friends. When she was head chef at Fitzbillies, she would produce a new menu each week, based around what we had on offer. Since then, she pops in regularly to collect produce for whatever she's working on.

Her new book offers 52 short recipes to extend the weekend. Whether you need comfort or inspiration on a Sunday night, you'll find the perfect recipe here. Rosie signed our copies when she was last here.

Reviews:

'Rosie is one of the great cooks of our time so humble, brilliant ideas, wonderful cooking and writing you want to read over and over again... Rosie cooks the food you want to eat all the time - unpretentious and delicious' --Angela Hartnett

'I couldn't be happier with the recipes suggested by The Sunday Night Book. Ideas for delicious food for the weekend often pop up through the week and these often get altered on a Sunday night; having seen the book, Rosie can alter my food any time!' --Fergus Henderson

'Rosie Sykes is a proper cook who cooks proper food with flair and skill. These recipes are all achievable but, more than that, very desirable even on nights other than Sunday. Excellent.' --Shaun Hill
