Launched this morning on Porty Podcast by Jo and Jen we are delighted by the generosity of Jo Turbitt who has offered Porty Food Map, The Traders’ Story a recipe book and celebration of local food shops, to Portobello Central as a fundraiser for the Town Hall.

The book, showcases the stories and precious recipes of more than fifteen local traders, is available on pre-order for £12.00.

Jo Turbitt in action

A map of the high street and prom the traders have let us into some of their secrets and stories.  There’s something for everyone in there, vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, carnivores, pescatarians and dogs.  Each recipe, other than those for dogs, has a wine pairing from The Fine Wine Shop.

We’re going to hold a launch event in March to bring together everyone who has contributed whether that’s through offering a recipe and story, bringing the book together through photography, illustration or transcribing or through chivvying, nudging and keeping the original idea on track and bringing it to fruition.  The pre-order books will be there for everyone to collect and for us all to celebrate food and the community at the heart of Portobello. We’d love to see as many people as possible at that event. 

Get your order here in early, one for you and one as a gift. 

If you’d like to know the story behind the book The story behind Porty Food Map, The Traders’ Stories will inspire and remind you of the power of community.
