'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 else's food is more true to the place where they live. He's an original. This book perfectly reflects his approach.' Diana Henry

'Gather is a book I wish to open every morning and pore over every evening. With his gentle alchemy, Gill Meller shows us the sheltered woods and wind-swept moors in dishes that cry out to be made, straight away.' Amy Bryant, Daily Telegraph

'In Gather Gill Meller encourages us not only to embrace our landscape through the shifting seasons, but to explore what is quietly growing out there, to enjoy it, and to turn it into something delicious. This is a truly beautiful book.' René Redzepi

'Gather is a perfect expression of something food writers have been trying to define for the past three decades modern British cooking.' Diana Henry, Telegraph Magazine

'Beautiful writing, beautiful food: this is an exquisite book that I cannot stop reading; and every recipe makes me consider ingredients and flavours afresh and beckons me into the kitchen. Gather does for contemporary British food what Ottolenghi has done for contemporary Middle Eastern cooking.' Nigella Lawson

'If ever there was a cookbook to have you yearning to up sticks and move to the countryside, then this is it. But Meller is more approachable, less elitist than that and Gather is a subtle encouragement to us all to get closer to the source of the food that we eat, wherever we live. Right up there with the very best cookbooks of the year, with photos so beautiful that it's coffee table as well as kitchen-worthy.' Katy McGuinness, food writer, Sunday Times (Ireland) and restaurant critic, Irish Independent

'This is the cookbook that s caused the biggest stir among food writers this year. Meller is an incredible talent who s quietly served his time as head chef at River Cottage. Not only has he broken out with an astonishingly beautiful book but his combination of creativity, technique and natural ingredients is effectively a redefinition of seasonal British cooking.' Financial Times

 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, quince), Field (rye, barley, wheat, oats), Woodland (mushrooms, damsons, blackberries), Moor (venison and trout), and Harbour (fish and seafood), Gather is a true celebration of British seasonal cooking at its best.
