'This glorious celebration of the vibrant buzzing community of traders and producers, of their high-quality products, values and ethos, and the pure simple joy of delicious seasonal cooking makes me want to run to the maze of alleys under the railway arches and run quickly back home to cook.' - Claudia Roden
'Borough is one of the great European food markets, sitting proudly alongside La Boqueria in Barcelona, Testaccio in Rome and Cours Saleya in Nice. I always get a thrill when I visit, whether it's to grab an armful of puntarelle or to indulge in a Kappacasein melted cheese sandwich. The Borough Market Cookbook brings that excitement to life with a remarkable chronicle of the market's origins a thousand years ago to its renaissance in the 1990s. I loved the joyful recipes and the engaging storytelling; it's essential reading for anyone interested in food.' - Russell Norman, restaurateur and food writer
'This book is a rare gem: a bible in the kitchen, a brilliant guide to using seasonal produce and a great pleasure to read.' - Meera Sodha, author of Made in India and Fresh India
'This book is the perfect representation of the market itself, where seasonality, amazing produce, history, creativity and visual panache come together and just make you want to cook!It will be a huge source of inspiration for years to come.' - Olia Hercules, author of Mamushka and Kaukasis
'Borough Market has played an important role in the development of British food culture. By allowing a relationship to develop between citizens and food producers, its rise has marked a new beginning for British production. Going into the Market means meeting the producers, talking to them, hearing their stories. It is a place that offers so much: history, integrity, wonderful food and the chance to really understand what you're eating. By respecting tradition, promoting sustainability and revelling in the love of good food, Borough Market provides a true representation of the philosophy of Slow Food.' - Carlo Petrini, founder and president of Slow Food
