The Seatoller House Cookbook

Trisha Dixon, Jenny Uglow


Seatoller House, at the top of Borrowdale, in the heart of the Lake District, was built in 1624. It has long been a famous place to stay.
For years, guests have begged the cook, Trisha Dixon, to publish her delicious recipes.
This enchanting book hold some of her secrets, from soups and starters to puddings and pies.
It also tells the story of the house, its people and its guests from the distant past to today through sections written by acclaimed historian and biographer Jenny Uglow.
This is a cookbook with a difference. It embodies the warmth and hospitality of Borrowdale.
 A note from Trisha Dixon  “Seatoller House, a famous guesthouse in Upper Borrowdale,was built four hundred years ago, in 1624. This book is a celebration of its long life and good cooking. I have been cooking at Seatoller for the past twelve years, while my husband Nigel manages the hotel – we work as a team.During this time guests have often asked me to tell them my recipes. This is flattering, but I’ve always hesitated – not because I want to hang on to any secrets, but because, like most people, I gather recipes from all over the place, from books and programmes, friends and family. I do find inspiration from historical cookbooks too. Then I make up my own variations. But I’m told the ‘Seatoller twist’ makes all the difference.”
