Great British Grub

Rick Stein Food Heroes
"These are people who have no truck with the concepts of standardization and mass production, who take pride in their lack of uniformity. They produce meat from breeds of animal you may never have heard of. They produce tomatoes with names that you’ll never see on the shelves of a supermarket. And they do it slowly, with an old-fashioned respect for seasons, the land, and for taste. They work with passion and commitment, and if the end product costs a little more, they make no apology – they are offering the best, not the cheapest."
An excellent resource of producers and farmers markets.
