The first cookbook by Michelin-starred chef and Great British Menu champion Tommy Banks

'Tommy Banks is a great chef, practising what he preaches about home grown produce cooked with love' Prue Leith


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.

'Roots is gloriously, fervently seasonal... Other chefs pay lip service to the seasonal and local mantra: Banks embraces it heart, soul and plate' Xanthe Clay, The Telegraph

MEDIA REVIEWS
A truly original and special take on foraging and seasonal eating * Caroline Sanderson, The Bookseller *
Tommy Banks is a great chef, practising what he preaches about home grown produce cooked with love. * Prue Leith *
This book, like the author is notable for its integrity * Jeremy Lee, chef-proprietor of Quo Vadis and Guardian Columnist *
Tommy Banks is one of the finest chefs working in Britain today. Roots defines his approach to cooking, based on ingredients sourced from a few miles around his restaurant, and transformed by his vision, skill and originality * Matthew Fort *
Roots is gloriously, fervently seasonal, revelling in challenge of the hungry months as much as the abundance of late summer and the glut of autumn. Other chefs pay lip service to the seasonal and local mantra: Banks embraces it heart, soul and plate. Gems of simplicity share pages with more complex recipes: Banks values them both equally * Xanthe Clay, The Telegraph *
