Recipes - food inspiration for every ESSE
Our recipes section is your new best friend; think of it as the cookbook that updates itself when you're not looking so that whenever you come back you'll find something new to try. Whether you are a brave beginner or an ESSE expert, there is something for everyone to cook in or on their ESSE.
Once you've chosen the clip you'd like to see, just click it to play. You can even cook along in real time with some of the videos.
With the help of master chefs from River Cottage, Humble by Nature, Bluebell Farmhouse Kitchen and many more cookery experiences from across the country, we have put together not just an online recipe resource for ESSE owners - all with an emphasis on regional British ingredients - but also pots of useful tips and advice too on how to use your ESSE, whether you prefer cooking on gas, oil, electricity or with a woodburner.
