  1. Pumpkin Pappardelle - a guest recipe by Wild by Tart

    Slow roasted pumpkin, smoky pancetta and pappardelle with pickled walnut and crispy sage.

    Inspired by places and people they love, Jemima Jones and Lucy Carr-Ellison, founders of Tart London and Wild by Tart, cook food with big flavours and seasonal ingredients, sustainably sourced where possible.

    We absolutely love pasta – our Achilles’ heel! Pumpkin is so delicious at the moment, and Delica is our favourite – we wanted to make something vibrant, comforting and luxurious and came up with this recipe – we loved it so much we have put it on our restaurant menu!

  2. Sticky Beef Brisket with Celeriac Remoulade

    This recipe can be made in the oven or slow cooker.

    An extract from Seed Magazine Volume 5, available to order now. 

    Seed magazine was founded on the belief that we need to live sustainably and consciously. Its philosophy is to lead by example: to gently inspire readers to make small changes with their own choices. 

    The recipes in volume 05 demonstrate delicious ways we can reduce food waste and be more economical in the kitchen. This sticky beef brisket uses a cheaper cut of meat and an energy-saving slow cooker to help you feed more for less – without compromising on flavour. 

  3. Carrot & Ginger Soup

    This is one of the first dishes we served when Daylesford first opened 20 years ago. The recipe is so popular we also sell pouches of carrot and ginger soup in our farmshops and online. Made in small batches on the farm with organic ingredients, the pouches are ready for customers to take home and gently heat through – easy, convenient and delicious.

  4. Epic Tarragon Roast Chicken - A Guest Recipe From Julius Roberts

    There are recipes in this book that i love because they are interesting, there are those that I love for their simplicity, and there are those that I find myself making again and again. This is the latter, a great roast chicken, the heart of home cooking and one of life’s great pleasures. I relish the ritual, my family’s fight over the wings, the secret chef ’s treats of the oysters, the leftover sandwiches and bubbling stocks. There is no meal that makes me feel more at home. In my mind, there are three keys to a good roast chicken . . . juicy meat, brown salty skin and most importantly a ton of sauce. And it’s the sauce of this chicken that really sets it apart: handfuls of tarragon, lashings of cream and a proper dollop of mustard, which when combined with the cooking juices, garlic and wine creates a truly epic mouthful.

  5. Traditional Soda Bread with Homemade Butter

    Quick and simple, with no kneading or proving required, soda bread is the perfect loaf for those just beginning on a bread making journey.

    Prepare and bake if you are suddenly out of bread in the house, serve in hearty chunks with warm soup, or alongside smoked mackerel pâté, fresh salad leaves and pickled cucumber as a rustic starter. But without fail, the very best way to serve this delicious loaf is warm from the oven with generous layers of homemade butter – just as we do on our Artisan Bread Making courses at our Cookery School.

  6. Comforting Chicken Broth with Pearl Barley, Ginger & Watercress

    Steaming broth brings instant comfort to the airways, while quality chicken broth is revered as an antiviral remedy to support the immune system around the world.

  7. Woodland Mushroom & Thyme Risotto

    With parmesan cheese & parsley oil.

    Risotto is one of the most comforting foods, especially during colder months. It is worth sourcing the different mushrooms stipulated in this recipe so you get a variety of textures and flavours in every bite. The mushroom purée adds a velvety creaminess while the parsley oil lifts the dish and adds colour.

    This recipe is inspired by a dish served in our cafés. Discover more seasonal recipes and cooking skills at our Cookery School.

  8. Pear & Blackberry Tarte Tatin

    We like to serve this pudding just warm and with a lightly spiced vanilla and kefir yoghurt.

  9. Rhubarb & Cheddar Tart - A Guest Recipe by Skye McAlpine

    It’s the Valentine’s sugar-pink of the rhubarb, blushing under a blanket of melted Cheddar, that makes this feel like romantic food for me; though it’s the flavour – rhubarb’s intense earthy sourness counterbalanced by rich buttery pastry and melting cheese – that makes me long to eat it. As much as you might associate rhubarb with puddings and nursery fare, don’t be fooled: this is very much a savoury business and also very much a ‘grown-up’ dish. I’ll be honest: the portions here are more than generous for two, but to make half a tart seems mean, and this is one of those dishes that everyone always eats more of than seems sensible, so I prefer to err on the side of plenty. And while it really does taste its very best warm straight from the oven, the cheese melting in your mouth, I nonetheless always look forward to leftovers.

    To go with it, you only need a salad: I can’t resist pairing this with a similarly pastel- hued salad of blush-pink radicchio rosa or dark red bitter chicory. Too much? Or just enough? One warning: this works best with long, thin, furiously pink rhubarb stems rather than the fatter ones, which take longer to cook and can taste a little too sharp.

    A Table Full of Love by Skye McAlpine is published by Bloomsbury, £26.

  10. Peanut Butter Cookies – A Guest Recipe from Amelia Freer

    Recipe from Simply Good For You by Amelia Freer.


    "I have a bit of a thing for biscuits and so tend to avoid buying them otherwise I’d easily eat a whole packet in one go. But going to the effort of making these (admittedly they don’t really require much effort) does slow me down as I want to savour them.

    I use coconut sugar as I love the flavour and it has slightly heathier properties than refined white sugar, but use whatever sugar you wish. I make these when I have lots of mouths to feed and there are never any left over."

  11. Beetroot, Tahini & Almond Brownies – a Guest Recipe by Kathy Slack

    Recipe from From the Veg Patch by Kathy Slack.


    “When I worked at Daylesford Organic Farm, the bakery made chocolate brownies that were out of this world. They were dark, fudgy and flecked with nuggets of white chocolate. I would buy one at the end of my shift in the kitchen garden, unable to resist tucking in straight away despite my mud-engrained fingers. They have been my brownie benchmark ever since, and so when I came to this recipe (beetroot and chocolate, after all, being a classic combination I could not omit), I knew mine too must be broodingly dark and have those signature morsels of solid chocolate hidden within. The result is a grown-up brownie, almost savoury, thanks to the beetroot and tahini. Good for dessert with a dollop of sour crème fraîche as contrast.”

  12. Carrot Cake - A Guest Recipe From Donna Hay

    This is the only carrot cake you need in your life! Layers of super soft cake are warmly (but not overly) spiced and studded with nuts, then coated in the dreamiest lemony cream cheese frosting.

    Extracted from Even More Basics to Brilliance by Donna Hay (Fourth Estate, £28)
  13. Asian-inspired Slaw with Peanut Butter, Soy & Lime Dressing

    We serve a version of this dish in the restaurants and on the food to go menus at Daylesford year-round. 

    We’ve used our new peanut butter in this dressing but cashew butter is also excellent. Make extra and use the dressing to add punchy flavour to other dishes such as salads, grain bowls, noodles, fish and chicken.  

    For the slaw, feel free to vary the ingredients depending on what’s in season, or what you have handy.

  15. Lemon Crème Brûlée Tart - A Guest Recipe From Donna Hay

    Few sounds are more satisfying than a spoon cracking through the scorched golden top of a crème brûlée to reveal the creamiest vanilla custard core. This is one you need in your entertaining bag of tricks.

  16. Salmon Ceviche with Bergamot Lemon & Pink Peppercorn Dressing

    This simple yet sophisticated dish would be ideal for a celebratory dinner party or as part of a festive spread. The fresh herb and citrus flavours in the crème fraiche and dressing complement the omega-3 rich salmon beautifully and you can impress your guests by carving slices from the whole side of salmon to serve at the table.

    This recipe is inspired by a dish served in our cafés. Discover more seasonal recipes and cooking skills at our Cookery School.

  18. Salsa Verde Mayonnaise

    This is an amalgamation of two classics: mayonnaise and salsa verde, the famous Italian green sauce, full of herbs with capers and anchovy.

  19. Iced Tea with Grapefruit

    This iced tea recipe from Kirthanaa Naidu is so good we recommend having a jugful at hand to enjoy throughout the day. Kirthanaa has added our Daylesford Oxfordshire honey to make this iced tea not only delicious but free from refined sugars. It's simple to make, perfect for a hot day and easy to make in advance when hosting friends or family.

  20. Roast Salmon with Peas, Bacon & Braised Little Gem

    “Wild salmon comes into season at the start of the summer, so this dish is based around pairing it with other seasonal ingredients. The accompaniment is a twist on the classic French dish, ‘petit pois à la française’, something I’m quite partial to, in which peas and lettuce are braised in stock and butter. My husband likes the addition of the bacon, but you could happily leave it out to make it a meat-free dish.”

  21. Courgette, Cumin & Lime Fritters – a guest recipe by Kathy Slack

    Recipe from From the Veg Patch by Kathy Slack.


    "For a tasty, fuss-free supper, you really can’t beat a fritter. Here, cumin, coriander and lime embellish an otherwise straightforward batter good for any grated veg, but do experiment with other flavourings – basil and lemon or smoked paprika and chilli – or leave out altogether. Our heroes are courgettes this time, but they could just as easily be grated carrot, beetroot, parsnips or cauliflower another day. And after you’ve made them for supper, try them cold for a packed lunch, or cook them small and serve as pre-dinner nibbles. Endlessly versatile, this is a real workhorse recipe.”

  22. Barbecued Côte de Boeuf

    We believe that our organic approach produces beef that is exceptional to eat, ours is dry-aged for a minimum of 28 days for optimal flavour.

    We are immensely proud of the organic beef that we rear on our farms in Staffordshire and the Cotswolds. High welfare standards and a dedication to rearing our animals slowly at pasture are central to our ethos. We firmly believe that our organic approach produces beef that is exceptional to eat, and ours is dry-aged for a minimum of 28 days for optimal flavour. It is when dishes such a this are presented at the table that our farmers can truly take great pride in what they do.

  23. Daylesford G&E

    Adding garnishes like juniper berries and cardamom pods add intriguing fruity, peppery, spicy notes. We serve this drink in our cafés using our organic fig leaf gin, which is hand-crafted and distilled using traditional methods.

  24. Warm Panzanella Salad with Daylesford Heritage Tomatoes

    A quick, filling and thoroughly easy dish for a vegetarian summer supper or as part of a delicious lunch, celebrating our heritage tomatoes. We grow over 40 varieties of tomato in our organic Market Garden and every year we are in awe of their colours, texture and unrivalled sweetness. Most of the time we tend to enjoy them raw but every now and then a glut calls for a little variation and this quick cooking technique brings out their wonderful flavour.

  25. Instant Tomato & Cannellini Bean Soup – a guest recipe by Amelia Freer

    Recipe from Simply Good For You by Amelia Freer.


    "This is an ‘instant’ soup. Simply blend the raw ingredients together in a decent blender, and it’s ready. No cooking required."

     

  26. Winter Vegetable Broth

    Nothing is more satisfying than a warming, nourishing bowl of broth on a winter’s day and this one is a celebration of winter vegetables from our organic market garden.

  27. Perfect Pancakes Every Time

    Pancakes are always a hit, their versatility means you can enjoy them at any time of day, with all manner of toppings and fillings.

    Perhaps you prefer savoury flavours such silky Market Garden leeks in a cheese sauce, or lashings of maple syrup, or simply a traditional squeeze of lemon and sprinkle of crunchy sugar. Either way, this base recipe will never fail.

  28. Clementine Custard Tarts – a guest recipe by Wild by Tart

    Portuguese-style custard tarts with festive clementine curd.

    Inspired by places and people they love, Jemima Jones and Lucy Carr-Ellison, founders of Tart London and Wild by Tart, cook food with big flavours and seasonal ingredients, sustainably sourced where possible.

    “We cook food that excites us, using ingredients we know work well together. We look to work with suppliers who have unique stories of sustainability or craftsmanship. Portuguese tarts are just so delicious. The traditional recipe is quite laborious, so we love this cheat recipe and were thrilled by the addition of the clementine curd which worked really well – a perfect festive treat.”

  29. Dukkah Cauliflower 'Steak' with Green Tahini, Spinach, Curd & Capers – a guest recipe by Eve Kalinik

    You could say that this is as 'meaty' as it gets for your microbiome, due to the feast of fibre the cauliflower provides. The curd or cheese is a natural fermented source of bacteria that is beneficial for our gut health, and a punchy green dressing delights the eyes as well as the taste buds.

  30. Hot Cross Buns

    This classic Easter recipe for Hot Cross Buns is a firm Daylesford favourite. Lots of fun to make, especially for children who can help stir the mixture, shape the dough and pipe the crosses.

  31. Leftover Turkey & Ham Pie

    There is no better way to celebrate Christmas leftovers than with a creamy pie with a thick, crumbly pastry. We like to serve this with jars of wholegrain mustard.

  32. Winter Sprout Slaw

    This slaw is a wonderful way to make use of seasonal winter vegetables, turning them into a colourful raw salad that is packed with nutritional value. We love to serve this as an accompaniment to festive platters of cold meat and baked potatoes. It is also a fantastic recipe to have up your sleeve when entertaining guests over Christmas as you can prepare it completely in advance.

    If you can’t find candy or golden beetroot, traditional ruby red will work beautifully and do add your own favourite raw vegetables such as carrots or cabbage to make the recipe your own.
