Welcome to the Food Library

Our monthly Dining Club tickets are now available from December onwards, visit our events page for information.

We are open for doorstep collections of your online shop purchases or for book-borrowing. Visit our shop or view books here.

From a Library dedicated to food, Laura and Michael grow, harvest and prepare a unique collection of seasonal liqueurs and preserves.

The Food Library is in Laura and Michael’s home in Northampton. You can visit to collect produce bought from the online shop or join the library as a member and borrow from a collection of over 400 books on inspirational growing, cooking and preserving. Events including The Food Library Dining Club are on our events page.

Laura and Michael are committed to growing their own delicious, chemical-free, environmentally friendly food and actively participating in a local, sustainable food chain.

The liqueurs and preserves are all handmade at The Food Library, using their home-grown and locally foraged produce combined with locally sourced ingredients. These are incorporated, along with fresh produce from the Kitchen Garden, into Michael’s bespoke monthly Dining Club events.
