The Books Foreword

From quirky home-grown cafés to sleek city-centre restaurants and off-the-track country pubs, The Leeds and West Yorkshire Cook Book offers a veritable slice of the region’s burgeoning food and drink scene.

Combining original step-by-step recipes with stories and anecdotes from the independent businesses that make the city and its surroundings thrive; this book is
your guide to the area, one forkful at a time.

Whether you fancy something hearty and traditional like beef cheek bourguignon, roast woodland pigeon, or Shipley hogget, or if you’re after a taste of something different such as a dandelion and burdock cake, Brazilian breakfast or festive chicken bastilla – the dishes amongst these pages reflect the true diversity of our city and beyond.

It’s time to get stuck in!
