Gill Meller is a celebrated chef, food writer, author and food stylist who has cut his teeth as Head Chef of the River Cottage team.
Working closely with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall for over more than a decade, Meller has cooked alongside Hugh on Channel 4 and contributed to the many delectable River Cottage Cookbooks – now he has brought us Gather. Showcasing 120 brand new recipes inspired by the landscapes in which Meller lives and works, Gather celebrates simplicity and nature, both in ingredients and cooking styles- it’s sensational.
Featuring chapters on foods from Moorland, Garden, Farm, Field, Seashore, Orchard, Harbour, and Woodland, Meller gently guides the reader through simple, sumptuous recipes. With great food at its heart, Gather is the most contemporary of cookbooks, with gorgeous photography that captures a year of the best cooking and eating.
“In both cooking and writing, Gill Meller has a unique and honest voice. No-one else’s food is more true to the place where they live. He’s an original. This book perfectly reflects his approach, ” Diana Henry.
