Published by: Black Dog Press
Imprint: St James’s House
To celebrate the centenary of The Royal British Legion, some of the world’s bestselling celebrity chefs – including Jamie Oliver, Ainsley Harriott, Cyrus Todiwala, Melissa Helmsley and the Hairy Bikers – have teamed up with acting or former members of the military to create this unique cookbook.
Researched, cooked and written by the Armed Forces and their high-profile supporters, this high-quality hardback book focuses on 100 regions in which The Royal British Legion has been active over the past century, including all corners of the British Isles, the Commonwealth and beyond. As well as profiles of 100 military heroes and heroines specific to each region, as nominated by The Royal British Legion, it features 100 delicious and authentic regional recipes that you’ll want to try at home. The book includes a helpful table that allows readers to convert Metric measurements into Imperial and US Cup equivalents with ease.
The combination of incredible dishes and amazing military stories will keep you reading before and after dinner, while contributions from high-profile supporters of the Legion will add a dash of celebrity spice.
Established in 1921, The Royal British Legion is the UK’s largest Armed Forces charity, sitting at the heart of a national network of partner organisations and more than 200,000 members. Best known for organising the annual Poppy Appeal and Remembrance Day services, the Legion works to ensure that current and ex-service personnel and their families can always access the support they need.
