Paul Merrett has written three books which are available for sale in most good book shops, via Amazon, or you can pick up a signed copy at The Victoria.
Spice Odyssey by Paul Merrett
Paul Merrett was born on the spice island of Zanzibar amidst a melting pot of cultural influences. During his career he has spent time working in many exotic corners of the world. Paul gained a Michelin star at the London restaurants l’Interlude and The Greenhouse.
"This book is a collection of recipes that I enjoy cooking and eating. It dodges between countries and continents with no apology. There are many classic spicy dishes that aren’t included and some quirky home invented ones that are. My only aim is to provoke inspiration and exploration, because those two qualities are always apparent in all of the world’s finest cooks."
Using the Plot by Paul Merrett
The first half is a story of one families bid to survive a year with out supermarkets and eat only what is grown on the allotment!
The second half features Paul in the more familiar setting of the kitchen with over 80 recipes using home grown produce.
Economy Gastronomy by Paul Merrett and Allegra McEvedy
Economy Gastronomy is about eating better and spending less. It’s about cutting your weekly shopping bill whilst making the most of your ingredients. It shows you how to cook really good food and have some money left over at the end of the week. It helps you plan, and it puts eating back at the heart of your life, where it should be.
The secret isn’t cheaper ingredients, economy brands or buy-one-get-one-frees.
The magic ingredient is just that – the ingredients. Invest in the best
you can afford, but make them work that bit harder for you. In short,
if you embrace Economy Gastronomy as a way of life, you’ll not only
save yourself a small fortune, but you and your family will find renewed
joy in the kitchen, and hopefully you’ll pick up some good life habits
