Who doesn't love apples? Grown, harvested and eaten for centuries, apples play an important role in everyday life and are enjoyed in a huge variety of ways. Author James Rich hails from apple country in Somerset, England, where his family own a cider farm. Apples, it could be said, are in his blood, this is a collection of over 90 of his best-loved recipes. Try your hand at a summery Crunchy apple, cherry and kale salad, a comforting Slow-roasted pork belly and pickled apple, and an Ultimate apple crumble, all washed down with a Cider and thyme cocktail. James uses whole apples as well as cider, apple juice, cider brandy and cider vinegar to add depth to his dishes Apples can be delicate and complementary, floral and simple or they can be bold, sharp and stand out from the crowd. Set to the backdrop of his family's stunning apple, Apple is a celebration of this humble fruit.
