new title: fancy a dirty weekend?

fancy a dirty weekend? the travels of a navvies cook by anne nichols

If you love the canals, or have been on a canal camp or work weekend with wrg (waterway recovery group) or any of the myriad of canal societies throughout the country, or if just like reading about cooking, our latest title is for you.

Written by Anne Nichols, who spent most of the 1990s feeding a team of volunteers as they worked on some of the most interesting and arduous canal restoration projects. From Chichester to Lancaster, Droitwich to Barnsley, Anne criss-crossed the country in the back of a Transit van to feed anything from six to a thousand hungry navvies.

This is her story of life as a navvies' cook, where the emphasis is on good food and lots of it.  At the end of each chapter is one of Anne's recipes for you to try out at home.

fancy a dirty weekend? will give you the flavour of what the canal restoration movement is all about, and you will meet some of its most endearing and amusing people.
