Although supermarkets stock a wide range of products, those in search of the highest-quality food will usually do better to buy from farms, markets and retailers in rural areas. This book covers over 350 speciality retailers in England, Scotland and Wales who supply produce such as goat's cheese, traditional fruit-cakes and chocolates, old-fashioned sausages and home-cured bacon. Stars indicate the best producer within each class (best cheese producer, best bakery, best organic producer, etc), and each entry describes the range of products available and gives directions, map reference, opening hours, and credit-card and mail-order details. The book is arranged by county and the establishments are shown on regional maps. There are two indexes - one listing mail-order suppliers and the other listing retailers under type of produce. Henrietta Green's "British Food Finds" won the Andre Simon Award for Best Book on Food and Related Subjects.

Noted British food journalist and broadcaster Henrietta Green tells where to find the best quality food in England, Wales, and Scotland. Meat, fish and seafood, fresh produce, baked goods, dairy products, flour, jams and jellies, herbs, and condiments are included with symbols indicating whether the establishment is a shop, farm, market stall, pick-your-own, or mail order. A description is given of how each product is made along with travel directions, telephone numbers, hours of operation, and credit cards accepted. Included are a few quality restaurants and recipes. Mail orders (with very few exceptions) are limited to within the country. A thorough and excellently written guide, this is intended for British readers and has limited value for Americans. Recommended for large libraries or extensive collections.?Lucille Corbo, MLS, Scranton, Pa.
