CAP Cook Book

New CAP, New Book: CAP Cook Book is coming: Pre-Order Now

The CAP Cook Book has a unique vision and structure. It is intended to make the CAP more ‘digestible’ for a larger audience that is not familiar with the technical jargon that characterizes so much of the CAP regulations. This hinders the involvement of the general public in the debate on the future of European agriculture and rural areas and related policies. The CAP Cook Book is connected to the CAP Cooking events on seven European farms, a combination of open doors, presentations by experts and cookery classes by local chefs with local products.

As you read this, the CAP Cook Book is now in full production stage; printing will start end of April 2016. This means we will start shipping the books around April at the latest. You can pre-order your copy today for € 19.99, shipping costs excluded.
