New voice Diana Henry progresses from the successful "Crazy Water, Pickled Lemons" to "Gastropub": a look at the new phenomenon in the world of pub cuisine. Travelling all around the UK she hunts out these newly born culinary gems, more often than not nestling in some of the most beautiful countryside on offer. From novice chefs to Michelin star winners, they all display innovation, pride and a love of local produce. Each part of the country is explored with the best pubs detailed alongside a selection of their most popular recipes. And if you miss a table there you will find more to choose from in "the best of the rest" which concludes each section. Traditional shepherd pies and rib-eye steaks mix with the more exotic Conwy mussels with coconut milk and coriander and roast partridge with Vietnamese cabbage salad. English puddings like crumble and sticky toffee pudding feature on menus alongside the inspirationally mouth-watering choices of toffee apple ice cream and geranium-scented panna cotta with red gooseberries... Join in the celebration of these top pubs specializing in good old-fashioned comfort food and learn the inspiration behind them as divulged by their owners. Lavish photographs from Jason Lowe complement Diana's text, giving a wonderful picture of warmth and welcome in each featured hostelry. Forget a pint of lager and a packet of crisps and return to that long lost art of warm hospitality now enjoying such a renaissance in gastropubs up and down the country. - Lucy Watson
