'Hook Line Sinker' by Galton Blackiston

The Festival is delighted to welcome back Galton, chef patron of the award-winning, Michelin-starred restaurant at Morston Hall in Norfolk.
‘Like all the best recipe books, Hook Line Sinker is not merely a collection of recipes but an honest celebration of life, discoveries and ideas: a story shared about the simple, sometimes nostalgic, pleasures of sharing and eating. Few are so intimately and enjoyably written as this one by my friend Galton Blackiston’ -- Michel Roux OBE
