A British institution, the National Trust’s cafés are loved by the millions who visit its many and varied sites every year. For some, a stop at the café is a bonus; for others, it’s the main event. Either way, it promises delicious, wholesome food that feels like the best home cooking. The third cookbook to showcase the best recipes from the National Trust’s cafés, National Trust Favourite Recipes has 80 recipes for guaranteed crowdpleasers – hearty, healthy food that’s simple to prepare and big on taste. From chicken, leek and tarragon pie to rhubarb and ginger cheesecake, plus lots of veggie and vegan options, there’s also a focus on seasonality and sustainability.
