View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This is a classic 'dream' book - breaking away to a remote island and making a success of it - but it is also a remarkably useful locally-themed cookbook, based on the traditional produce of the Isles of Scilly and the special secrets of the bakery on the off-island of St Martin's. It's a book for anyone interested in islands and remote places, as well as cookery. Toby Tobin-Dougan made a lifestyle leap and moved to the tiny community on St Martin's, Isles of Scilly, where he opened a bakery, bought the pub, and installed a first-rate chef, Paul Websdale. In "The Island Ingredient" they tell their story, alongside 115 pages of fantastic food and bakery specialities, using locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible. It features text, recipes...and a third ingredient. The job Toby left was professional photography. This book is thick with remarkable photos of one of the most beautiful places on earth - over 90 in the section about the island, and another 70 pictures of the recipes.

About the Author:

Toby Tobin-Dougan was born in Coventry, and later worked with the country's most renowned fashion, advertising and editorial photographers. In 1982 he visited St Martin's, Isles of Scilly, and falling in love with the island vowed he would find a way to live there permanently. Taking huge risks, he moved there in 1992. He converted a redundant barn into St Martin's Bakery and was voted Best UK Food Retailer by Radio 4's Food Programme in 2002. Early in 2007 he purchased the island public house, The Seven Stones. Through the inspired recruitment of a young and talented chef, Paul Websdale, co-author, they have transformed the business into a place of great success. Paul Websdale came to the Scillies as a boy in 1996 and returned to the islands in 2002 as commis chef at the St Martin's Hotel. After spells working for chefs Michael Caines and Martin Burge, a serious accident, and a lot of travel, he began his third season on St Martin's with his own kitchen at the Seven Stones, when Toby bought it in 2007.
