The nature of food: why good food doesn't have to cost the Earth (NE200)

The Nature of Food looks at the links between our favourite dishes and the health of our countryside and wildlife, and shows that good food doesn’t have to cost the Earth.
The report provides an illustrated food journey ‘from farm to fork’, showcasing the individual stories of farmers and food producers who, with the help of Natural England’s Environmental Stewardship schemes, are producing high quality, distinctive food and helping to look after the natural environment.
Including top facts about our culinary history and regional food heritage – from the unique Wensleydale cheese to the ‘Bedfordshire clanger’ – The Nature of Food also addresses tougher issues around the decline of traditional orchards, farmland bird numbers and the effects of over-fishing.

Prue Leith has donated a series of recipes to The Nature of Food which aim to help people make informed choices about their Christmas ingredients and celebrate British food produced with nature in mind.
