MY NEW BOOK – COMING IN OCTOBER 2022
It has been a long time coming, but I am pleased to say I am just putting the finishing touches to my new book, More Than Yorkshire Puddings. The intriguing title comes from a sweet story of when I first went to my publisher’s Great Northern Books with the idea for a book. I felt very strongly that any time I would say in passing that I come from Yorkshire, the reply would inevitably be, “Oh, Yorkshire Puddings.!”
I so wanted to write a cookery book about Yorkshire and the wealth of food we have, not that I don’t love Yorkshire puddings, but we are more than that, I implored. They said no, and then several months later, asked me if I would write a book on – you guessed – Yorkies (as we fondly call them ).
I did, and that little book is still selling today across the world and is in its 3rd edition. So now is the time to dispel the myth, once and for all, we do eat more than the puddings.
There are over 100 recipes, a mix of Yorkshire legacy recipes, those favourites handed down and multi-cultural recipes using fabulous Yorkshire produce inspired by my travels and different countries I have lived and worked.
I hope you like it.
More About Lemm on Food
Join my passion for food here on Lemm on Food in all its shapes and forms. I love to cook which I have done from a young age thanks to my mum and dad; she cooked it, he grew it and my large brood of brothers and sisters have a lot to be thankful for the gifts they gave us.
My route to food though didn’t begin until I had worked my way through art college. After a good few years working in fashion design and teaching, I upped-sticks and went on what I fondly call my ‘wilderness years’ travelling and working in different countries. Ultimately I ended up living in rural France for several years and reconnected with my love of food and cooking and the rest, as they say, is history.
Lemm on Food is very much my personal space to deposit some of my work, opinions and recipes. As a restaurant critic with the Yorkshire Post, you can find all my latest restaurant and pub reviews. Most of the images on here are mine. I am still something of a beginner at food photography, but I love it, so please bear with me.
