This morning we launched the "Pan-fried, Peeled and Proud Potatoes from Stroud. A Recipe Book."
Stroud Town Mayor Andy Read was kind enough to join the launch and press photos.

It has some 40 recipes from local people and restaurants including local food write Mathew Fort. Plus nutritional advice re potatoes and folklore - did you know keeping ginger with potatoes helps keep both fresh!
Anyhow well over 20 copies of the book was sold in the first half an hour - and more in the Stroud Market stall where there was a stall of books by local authors. Get your copy soon - ideal Christmas present with profits to Transition Stroud to fund more low carbon events.
The book, selling for £4 (or £3 Stroud pounds) is at the new Stroud Valleys Project shop in Threadneedle Street or Stroud Book Shop or later this week in the Stroud Town Council Offices. See my earlier blog here re quotes about the book and the wonderful support froim many people who made the book possible.
