THE FORGE KITCHEN COOKBOOK

A COOKBOOK

Over the past two years myself and my co-author , food stylist Pooch Horsburgh, have been working on a very special type of cookbook. It is inspired by the utensils that we make and by the chefs that use them ... it's about food, drinks,  craftsmanship, photography, tools and much much more !
The Forge Kitchen celebrates the vital synergy between great kitchen tools, great ingredients and great cooking – and the results are beautiful, satisfying and delicious.” Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Founder, River Cottage.

A CULINARY COLLABORATION

 By Alex Pole and Pooch Horsburgh

The Forge Kitchen is about the things we use to cook with - A unique fusion of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary cooking.

1 BLACKSMITH : 21 CHEFS : 40 RECIPES

 

Each of The Forge chefs has taken their inspiration from cookware hand made in the fires of our Somerset forge, they have given it purpose and function, to create delicious recipes suitable for anyone to cook at home.

The pans we cook in, the utensils we serve up with and the cutlery we use are as important to any meal as the ingredients – It’s all part of the flavour !

 

Some of Britains top chefs have been kind enough to give their time and creativity to this idea ... they are the real stars !
