If you ask someone to name some famous Norfolk foods, they would probably not have any difficulty in coming up with sugar beet, maybe, or turkeys, mustard or chocolate. If that someone was keen on history they may say, ‘Cromer crabs, Yarmouth bloaters and Caister dumplings’.

The region is similarly blessed with some nationally famous names – Delia Smith, Galton Blackiston or Bob Flowerdew, for example. Likewise festivals, events and markets have attracted the attention of foodies worldwide, and yet there is so much more to the story too as the authors relate...

“This book was inspired in no small part by a wander around the Bidwell/EDP Norfolk Food Festival. Here we saw the best organic veggies, duck eggs, pork pies, Aberdeen Angus beefsteaks, artisan breads and cakes, fruits, juices, jams, pickles, butter, cheeses, milks, poultry, honey, lamb and pork, crabs, lobsters and vegetarian wonders. We had the idea of a visit to some of the best of our present generation of food specialists. There were so many questions. Armed with a camera and notebook, we set out by car, oftentimes resorting to tramping across tracks and fields, to discover some of the answers. Here, gloriously illustrated by Daniel’s photography, is a tribute to all those who specialise in local food production, a snapshot of their lives and work, and their chosen recipes.”

Stephen Browning was educated in Norfolk before gaining an honours degree in History from the University of Kent at Canterbury. After training as a teacher at the University of Birmingham School of Education, he spent much of his working life promoting teacher exchanges between the United Kingdom and the overseas Commonwealth. He also worked for the Council for Education in the Commonwealth. He has written extensively about best practice in education both in the UK and the 50-plus countries of the Commonwealth. He has written, or contributed to, a number of books about the English Language, mainly for the Asian market. He spends several months each year in Taiwan.

Daniel Tink was born and still lives in Norwich, a city he knows well and continues to enjoy exploring. A graphic designer by profession, photography has given him a unique and detailed view of life through a lens. Daniel has previously provided photographs for the books Norwich in the Halsgrove Discover Series, Norfolk in the same series, and Spirit of Norwich Cathedral, all written by Stephen Browning. Daniel is the author of Spirit of Norwich in the Halsgrove PiXZ series.
