The Countryside Kitchen book includes almost 80 recipes using seasonal ingredients, and features profiles of farmers including Tim Papworth, a director of LF Papworth at Felmingham, near North Walsham, and Cambridgeshire farmer Tom Martin, who farms at Haddon near Peterborough.

It is produced by the National Farmers' Union (NFU) whose regional director, Robert Sheasby, said: 'This is more than a recipe book. It takes readers on a journey from farm to fork, offering an insight into the people who produce our food and highlighting the huge pride they take in delivering the best ingredients to our dinner tables.

'The Norfolk-grown potatoes and Cambridgeshire wheat featured in Countryside Kitchen are just two examples of the delicious and diverse range of produce grown in East Anglia, by farm businesses that employ more than 40,000 people across our region.'

The book includes a foreword from Countryfile presenter and farmer Adam Henson, who writes: 'Everyone is touched by this innovative sector, from the milk in their tea to the ingredients for their favourite dish, but people have become disconnected with how their food is produced and the best time to buy it in season. That is what this recipe book is all about.'
