South Cambridgeshire based farmer’s wife and mother of two girls, Jenny Jefferies, compiled the successful debut book For The Love Of The Land; A Cook Book To Celebrate British Farmers And Their Food published by Meze Publishing. Forty fantastic farmers from all over the British Isles contribute both a recipe and a story about what British farming means to them. Minette Batters, The President of The National Farmers’ Union wrote the Foreword. A proportion of her royalties will be donated to The National Literacy Trust.
Jenny’s eagerly anticipated second book For The Love Of The Sea; A cook book to celebrate the British seafood community and their food is out now, also published by Meze Publishing. 41 prominent people from the British Fish and Seafood industry contribute both a recipe and a story about what the sea and British fish and seafood mean to them. Marcus Coleman, the Chief Executive of Seafish.org has kindly written the Foreword. 22% of Jenny’s net profits will be paid in support of the RNLI*
Jenny has also recently become a ‘Food Hero’ with Love British Food. Love British Food Members are a community of businesses who care about promoting quality British products and for who producing, using, selling or promoting British is part of their core brand proposition.
We are all passionate about what we do and how we do it, and we want to tell others about how great British produce is.
