House of Catford
The Catford Cookbook celebrates Catford’s rich heritage, evolving present, and vibrant future.
It roams from high street to side street via the market, picking out ingredients with interesting flavours and brilliant backstories and introduces businesses even long time Catfordians may not be aware of.
Each of the 100 recipe were chosen after speaking with local people about the meals they create now and the dishes they ate growing up, especially those dishes they deeply miss and would love to eat again.
Dishes are split into chapters of meat, poultry, fish, vegetarian, vegan and sweets - with something for every season.
The Catford Cookbook is illustrated by local artist, Nancy Ellis, and will encourage readers to see Catford with fresh eyes, support independent businesses and immerse themselves in the depth and deliciousness of the area.
