From the fabled kitchens of Ambridge come the recipes and gossip that fuel the
nation’s favourite village.
Whether it’s Susan’s spicy chilli con carne on the hob or Helen’s dramatic tuna
bake in the oven, Jill’s flapjacks stacked high or Alastair’s Goan fish curry hotting up
suppertime, this celebration of Ambridge life will take fans even closer to the heart of
every Archers home.
But this book isn’t just a cook-along with our favourite families. It’s full to the brim
with tales and memories. The Archers Year of Food and Farming shares the ups
and downs of the inhabitants of Ambridge and celebrates our countryside in all of its
green and pleasant glory.
Month-by-month, we learn more about the farming community and those big events
in the Ambridge calendar: Shrove Tuesday and Easter, lambing, Open Farm Sunday, the
village fete, Apple Day, the harvest, Stir-up Sunday and Deck the Hall.
Rural traditions are alive and well in The Archers, but it’s a contemporary world that
is full of warmth, wit and the unexpected.
