England – North, Midlands & East No7
Routinely pick up freshly made loaves of springy sourdough from your fave cafe-bakery? Devoted fan of your local coffee shop’s cakes and brunches? This is the cookbook for you.
In this second edition of the Indy Cafe Cookbook, the team behind the Independent Coffee Guides have left no doughnut unturned in the search for the best brunch dishes, luscious lunches, creative bakes and coffee-infused drinks.
The result is a curation of easy-to-recreate signature dishes – from on-trend brunch and lunch plates to showstopping bakes and caffeine-laced cocktails – from the kitchens of 40 of the UK’s hero speciality cafes and roasteries. The extensive menu also includes a healthy helping of plant-based crowd-pleasers.
Every recipe has been matched with its own coffee and playlist pairing so you can feast, cafe-style, in your own home.
