THE PROJECT
------------------

Just over three years ago we started the With Love Project. It’s focus is to find people who produce things with a passion and a purpose, who truly care about what they do and what they make. This is our second trip around the country and now our second book in as many years.

This time, the focus is on food and drink and the we’ve visited 25 producers for the book. We have have travelled to the top of the country and witnessed David and Ben Oakes hand diving for Scallops on the isle of Skye. We’ve been shown around a British tea plantation in Cornwall by MD Jonathon Jones, and experienced other fascinating producers all over the UK. We wanted to see what was available on our doorstep and start to understand seasonality and how it should influence what we eat.

---------------
THE FOCUS
---------------

Over the last three years we've met British producers from all walks of life, tailors, wheelwrights, farmers, roasters and many more. All producing with passion and purpose, all creating with a focus and belief that things can be made better. This focus and belief has changed how we spend and made us think about how important our purchasing power is. We've started to take note of items we're buying, where they were made, who was making them, how they were produced and why they had a certain price tag. This curiosity started to seep into the majority of our purchases and is how we became so interested in food.

The visits for this book have drastically changed our outlook on how we eat. We now understand the power of eating locally, both economically and from a community focus. We appreciate the benefits of using seasonal produce, reducing food miles and drastically increasing taste. We also have great respect for the producers we've met and the practices that go into getting the food onto our plate.

We want to celebrate the people we've met and share the knowledge we've gained and do it in a beautiful book. One that captures the individual stories, the processes involved and gives the reader a better understanding of what's available right here on our doorstep.   

-----------------------
WHO WE'VE MET
-----------------------

The book is full of stories of British producers who are championing great produce and doing so in a sustainable way. Creating new markets for kid meat, or forraging botanicals for gin from the side of Snowdon, Wales, hand diving for scallops on Skye, or growing micro herbs in air raid shelters under London. The book is also punctuated with visits to chefs from England, Scotland and Wales who have created dishes with some of the produce we’ve collected on route. You can see some of the people we met up on Skye in our short film below

--------------
THE BOOK
--------------

We want to create a beautiful limited edition hard-bound book of the people we’ve met containing lots of exclusive and previously unseen interviews and photography.  The project so far has been entirely self funded and in order to create this beautiful limited edition book we need your help with the printing. We will be working with GF Smith to find the best FSC paper and will be printing with vegetable based inks at Team impression in Leeds. The print run will be limited to 1000. To make this project a reality we have to hit our funding total – if we don’t, then we won’t receive a penny and the book can’t be printed. That’s where you come in.

THE TEAM
--------------

• Chris Roberts - Art director responsible for the design and words.

• Rob Evans - Photographer in charge of all imagery.

THE REWARDS
