TV presenter and food writer Andrew Webb met producers from the Bicester area at a book signing in St Edburg’s Church on Saturday.

Andrew Webb, who created Channel 4’s Big British Food Map, was promoting his new book Food Britannia at the event organised by Cole’s Books. The 560-page book celebrates the best of British food, with 350 entries from around the country.

Local entries include Banbury cakes, the Oxford sausage and Hook Norton ales.

Nash’s Bakery from Bicester, Oxfordshire Ales from Marsh Gibbon, Manor Farm Herbs from Fringford, Roots of Hardwick and John Walman Butchers of Launton were invited along to promote their goods.

Nigel French, owner of Cole’s Books in Crown Walk, said: “It really does surprise me what little gems we have around us.

“The ladies from Roots of Hardwick put on a great display, and Andrew was completely enamoured with what they are doing.”
