A Cook's Year In A Welsh Farmhouse
(Bloomsbury, May 2011)
A Cook’s Year in a Welsh Farmhouse
is a month-by-month recipe-diary of life and cooking through the changing year at Brynmerheryn, the wild and beautiful place where I now live in the foothills of the Cambrians on the western edge of Wales.
The house, stone-built and slate-floored, is not grand but old, with signs of human habitation all around. Surrounded by woodland and water with sheep pastured all around, the place is at its liveliest when the grandchildren come to stay.
Illustrations are my own watercolours and award-winning photographer Clare Richardson’s atmospheric photographs. Clare lives in the Forest of Brechfa about an hour away from Brynmerheryn and is internationally known for her work on people and place (clarerichardson.com)
