The Hive announces its first cookbook …

The Hive Beach Café is pleased to announce that its printing its very first cookbook, that will be ready for Christmas.

The cookbook, contains over 100 recipes from our 4 chefs and is supported by Lesley Waters, who has written the foreword for the book as well and entering a few of her own recipes too.

Tim, Barry, Gibby and Giles have spent the last few weeks developing their recipes, which will be presented in the book by season, ensuring they are easy to cook and look great. Graham has been taking all of the shots for the book and everyone agrees it looks fantastic. The layout and design of the book has been created by Rufus Purdy who has been working with us over the past few months on other projects, including the Secret Beaches book, released earlier this year.

The book will not only provide recipes that are easy for you to cook at home, but also provides information on filleting, our suppliers as well as some great pictures of the fish themselves and of course, our wonderful location here on the Jurassic Coast.

The recipes will include many of your favourites that you might see regularly on our menus down at the café, but will also include some of the more unusual fish and those subject to discarding to help promote the issues of sustainable fishing. These include fish like Gurnard, Dabe, Huss and Garfish.

Some of the recipe’s we’ll besharing with you are:

  • Hot shellfish platter
  • Tempua Pollock
  • Lobster Bisque
  • Pan fried Huss
  • Dover Sole with parsley & garlic butter
  • Grilled Hake with sauteed spring greens

The book is released for sale on December 1st 2011 and will cost £16.99. The initial print run will be a limited run, so to secure your copy, make sure you pre-order by clicking here now.
