A good read in its own right, and stuffed with Ambridge life and gossip, The Archers Year of Food and Farming lifts the lid on the village and its farms, and takes the reader beyond the daily show
'What's for tea, Clarrielove?'
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.
