The Victorian Chop Houses' beef shin, bone marrow and Guinness Pie is one of the recipes featured

For proud Mancunians who love their grub, there’s no better Christmas present than the latest Manchester Cookbook.

The Manchester Cookbook Second Helpings celebrates the fine food and drink available on our doorstep, and features recipes by some of Manchester’s top chefs including stellar dishes from Masterchef 2015 winner Simon Wood, Ben Mounsey at Grafene, exec chef Lee Ferguson at Victorian Chop House Co. and Albatross and Arnold’s Michelin-trained head chef Johnathan Green.

The first edition of The Manchester Cookbook was released last year to huge success,  highlighting some of the city’s top dishes as well as signposting local producers and suppliers across the county.

The second edition is jam-packed with a similarly impressive selection of top Manchester restaurants including the Victorian Chop Houses, Wood, Grafene, The Refuge and Zouk.

Spanning everything from the traditional to the contemporary, recipes range from the Victorian Chop Houses’ mouthwatering beef shin pie recipe to Grafene’s wild seabass, miso salsify, brown buttered shrimp and vanilla corn.

For anyone with a sweet tooth, there’s a recipe for Manchester tarts from award-winning chocolatiers Slattery

To celebrate their involvement in the new Manchester cookbook, the Victorian Chop Houses are giving away three copies of the book to our readers – just in time for Christmas.

The lucky winners will be able to use the book to make three of the Victorian Chop Houses most iconic dishes – steak tartare, crispy pig fritters with apple purée and pickled quail’s eggs, and of course their beef shin, bone marrow and Guinness pie.

To enter, simply head over to our Facebook page to engage with the post above and make sure to follow Tom’s Chop House to be in with your chance of winning this great prize.

Winners will be announced on December 14th. Good luck!
