Gill Meller, chef at River Cottage, showcases 120 recipes inspired by the landscapes in which he lives and works.

Featuring chapters on foods from the Farm (pork, dairy, honey), Seashore (crab, seaweed, oysters), Garden (tomatoes, salads, soft fruits), Orchard (apples, pears, cherries), Field (rye, barley, wheat, oats), Woodland (mushrooms, damsons, blackberries), Moor (game and herbs), and Harbour (fish and seafood), Gather is a true celebration of British seasonal cooking at its best.

It has been awarded the prize for Best Debut Food Book at the 2017 Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards and was shortlisted for the 2017 Cookery Book Award from The Guild of Food Writers.


'Just stunning. There's no one I'd rather cook for me than Gill and there's not a recipe here I wouldn't eagerly devour.'

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

'In both cooking and writing, Gill Meller has a unique and honest voice. No-one elses food is more true to the place where they live. He's an original. This book perfectly reflects his approach.'

Diana Henry

Not only has [Meller] broken out with an astonishingly beautiful book but his combination of creativity, technique and natural ingredients is effectively a redefinition of seasonal British cooking.
