A wonderful, mouth-watering collection of recipes from the Black Farmer who is famed for his award-winning sausages and meat. He certainly brings us flavours without frontiers as exemplified by Sweet and Spicy Lamb Meatballs; Cajun Blackened Chicken; Star Anise Pork Belly, Venison Fillet with Pine Nut Stuffing and Cassis Sauce; Red Snapper Ceviche and Wild Boar Pie . Wilfred feels there is so much more to meat then just chops and he wants to persuade cooks to widen their horizons with lesser known but equally delicious cuts of meat. Alongside the recipes are fascinating tales from Wilfred's extraordinary and inspirational life from impoverished background to squaddie, chef, producer of BBC Good Food and finally farmer and politician.
Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones is the only black farmer in Britain. From an impoverished background first in Jamaica and then in Birmingham he became a producer/director of food programmes. His real ambition was to own and farm a piece of British countryside. He now sells his own 'Black Farmer; brand of sausages and meats and is proposing opening a chain of restaurants featuring his produce. He is the Tory PPC for Chippenham for the next election and has already had one C4 documentary under his belt featuring his bursary for underprivileged black kids (Young Black Farmers) and another C4 series to be screened next year. His farm is in Devon.
