A unique cook book shows home chefs how to try Cheshire’s finest recipes in their own kitchen.

Featuring more than 50 dishes, which use the county’s best produce and highlight local suppliers, the Cheshire Cook Book is now on sale.

Chester restaurants who have supplied recipes include The Chef’s Table and Joseph Benjamin.

Executive chef at the Michelin star restaurant The Chester Grosvenor Simon Radley has written the book’s foreword.

He said: “World-famous cheeses, rare-breed meat, the freshest fruits and seasonal vegetables can all be sourced from within the county.

“This book is a celebration of all the people who farm, grow, make, cook and promote them.”
