Demo Kitchen October residency: The Borough Market Cookbook with Ed Smith

To celebrate the launch of The Borough Market Cookbook, author Ed Smith will be joining us every Thursday in October cooking dishes both inspired by, and taken directly from, the book.

The Borough Market Cookbook, published by Hodder & Stoughton on the 4th October, takes the reader on a tour of the four seasons of Borough, from Apple Day in October, to the switching on of the Christmas lights, to Easter and Midsummer, accompanied by the most delicious seasonal recipes highlighting the very best of the traders produce.

Using seasonal ingredients from traders at Borough Market, Ed will showcase delicious seasonal recipes inspired by the wealth of produce on sale at Borough Market. 

Visitors will be able to purchase the cookbook direct from the Market on the day - and Ed will be on hand for personal signings - enabling them to buy the necessary ingredients from traders and recreate the dishes at home.

Ed will focus on a different produce category within the Market each week, with selected traders from each joining Ed on stage to share their knowledge. Menus will include:

4th October - Meat: Butcher Dom McCourt from Northfield Farm will accompany Ed to make bavette steaks and mushroom ketchup, duck tacos, pork and plum meatballs and chorizo bake.

11th October - Dairy & Larder: Trader Marianna Kolokotroni from Oliveology will help Ed make baked fig and honey with ginger biscuits, The Borough Market toastie, cavolo kritheraki, Comte souffle and goat's cheesecake with pistachio crumb.

18th October - Fruit & Vegetables: Fred Foster from Turnips will be joining Ed to make Winter squash, sage and curd, Autumn panzanella, tarragon mushrooms on toast and apple mille feuille.

25th October - Fish: Paul Day from Sussex Fish will work with Ed to showcase Spiced Mackerel and Carrot Pickle, Whipped Hot Smoked Salmon with Autumnal Crudités, Scallops and Curried Monkfish and Clams.


The free ‘Borough Market Cookbook’ demonstrations will take place in the Demo Kitchen, in Borough Market's Market Hall every Thursday throughout October from 1pm – 2.30pm.
