‘Home to the most vibrant restaurant scene in London’ – Jay Rayner
The regeneration of Brixton Village in south London has been one of the most extraordinary urban success stories of the last decade.
Recipes from Brixton Village celebrates the incredible diversity on offer in the market. Miss South has pulled together a vibrant collection of recipes contributed from many of the traders (including Cornercopia, Fish Wings & Tings, Kaosarn, Elephant, El Rancho De Lalo, Snugg, Okan and many more) as well as her own recipes showcasing the wonderful produce available from the fishmongers and grocers in the Village. Ranging from real market favourites like Jerk Chicken and Okonomyaki to seafood treats like Etta’s fish soup or Barbecued Mackerel with Amalfi Lemon and Rosemary, the recipes come from every corner of the globe. Lab G‘s glorious ice cream is featured, as are the extraordinarily delicious concoctions from Cornercopia’s pop-up cocktail bar, The Botanical. And it wouldn’t be a book from Brixton without a recipe using the African Land Snail…
Including a guide to all the restaurants and stalls, and wonderful illustrations from local illustrator Kaylene Alder, Recipes from Brixton Village captures the energy, talent and vibrancy of the most exciting market in London.

Her ideas include plenty of hearty mains and scrumptious puddings, as well as quick-and-easy side dishes and creative ways for using up any leftovers. This is no-fuss, affordable, slow-cooker food at its best.
