From the cover: “Set in a verdant, hidden valley in the heart of the English countryside, the childhood home of Elizabeth Barrett Browning has found fame as one of the leading lights of the modern British cooking movement.
From the ancient walled garden and beautiful surrounding countryside comes the organically grown produce that is at the heart of the Hope End philosophy:
- Fresh Home-Grown Fruit, Vegetables And Herbs
- Fresh, Creamy Goats’ Milk
- Orchard Hens’ Rich Eggs
- Wye Salmon
- Hereford Pike And Eels
- Gloucester Old Spot Ham
- Locally Reared And Selected Beef And Lamb
At the centre of Hope End’s success is Patricia Hegarty, whose inspired use of these ingredients has received wide acclaim in the leading restaurant guides. With the delicate interweaving of local fresh produce, the recipes and groups of menus for each season lead to the balancing of a pleasurable meal and every food lover’s chance to capture a little of the magic of Hope End — truly an English flavour.”
