The Bovril Cookbook

The Bovril Cookbook

2009
Paul Hartley

A beefy collection of 40 recipes, from the bestselling author who has ingeniously challenged our thinking regarding the limitations of some of our best-loved storecupbaord icons. He has found a world that goes way beyond the mere spreading onto toast, or squeezing into sandwiches – for Marmite, Colman’s Mustard, Worcestershire Sauce, Heinz Tomato Ketchup, Lyle’s Golden Syrup… and now HP Sauce. So here are casseroles with clout, suprisingly rich gravies, a stunning Onion Soup and marinading ideas galore – these are recipes we all want to cook, created in surprisingly easy and tasty new ways. The book is beautifully packaged with fun fillings of history and lore and stunning archive imagery from over 125 years of the nation’s favourite meaty stock.

Paul Hartley is the author of The Marmite Cookbook, The Lea & Perrins Cookbook, The Colman’s Mustard Cookbook, The Heinz Tomato Ketchup Cookbook, The Lyle’s Golden Syrup Cookbook and The HP_Sauce Cookbook. He is a gifted food writer and a talented chef. In a past life he has run European-style caf-bars in London and an award-winning country pub in deepest Somerset.
