Learn what to cook and eat this spring with The Borough Market Cookbook – the first ever official book from Borough Market.

The book is written by award-winning food writer Ed Smith who is a regular contributor to Borough Market’s online and print magazine and has created delicious recipes from the bounty on offer at the market.
