Lovely book, I was hesitant at buying a restaurant based recipe book as many are too complex. This one makes me want to visit the restaurant and the recipes focus on good quality ingredients with the British theme throughout. I want to cook meals from this book instead of just read about them, which I do with most of my recipe books.

IF IN DOUBT, BUY THIS BOOK. It is delightful for the home cook and the foodie alike. There is almost a photo for each recipe. The recipes will keep you spellbound. They are fairly easy and delicious to make. It is clearly written and easy to understand. This is superb example of British cuisine. This cookbook is so well done. I buy 5-8 cookbooks a month and this cookbook is my favorite of the year so far. Much time and money has obviously gone into the photos, the food choices and the details of the book. If you were to buy one cookbook this year and splurge-this is the cookbook to buy for yourself or to give as a gift. I particularly like the cocktail section at the beginning of the book. This book offers a variety of recipes from brunch, lunch, dinner and deserts all of which are British origin. I highly recommend this cookbook. It is a cookbook that you can just enjoy reading by the fireplace or use daily to try new recipes. Absolutely STELLAR!

5.0 out of 5 stars For any lovers of all things local 20 Sep 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Written by Marcus Wareing together with Chantelle Nicholson (a former Acorn Award winner) and now GM of his celebrated restaurant the Gilbert Scott, the book is a tribute to the traditional British dishes served at the restaurant, located at the Amazing St Pancras Renaissance hotel near Kings Cross London.

It begins with a short history of the hotel, starting in 1865 when the Midland Railway company held a competition to design a hotel with the brief that it needed to "add luster" to its soon-to-be-completed St Pancras station. Several architects submitted plans, but it was leading Gothic revivalist 
George Gilbert Scott's remarkable 300-bedroom design that was declared the winner.

In the run-up to the opening of the Gilbert Scott in 2011, Nicholson and Wareing spent many hours poring over books and archives selecting dishes and recipes to be served in their brasserie and, having done such extensive research, it seems only resourceful that their hard work is recognized with the publication of a book.

The Gilbert Scott Book of British Food is based on the menu at the Gilbert Scott restaurant and bar, which, in turn, pay homage to the historic charm of the 19th century building.

Split into seven chapters, it begins with:

1. The "Bar" section, which features recipes for a selection of cocktails and bar snacks including salt and pepper squid and Countess Morphy's croquettes.

2. Following this is the "To Begin" section of the book - a selection of dishes which Marcus Wareing suggests can be used as not only starters, but perhaps a light lunch as well as all can be served either as a starter or as a lunchtime meal with bread or salad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply superb 23 Dec 2013
By Alison Towers VINE VOICE

A great British cookbook full of inspirational recipes. The savoury and desert sections are magnificent, although my eyebrows did shoot towards the ceiling at the full English breakfast. That can maybe wait until I find myself down in London outside their door and hungry, then they can do all that work, but at least I'll know what I'm eating.
Most of the recipes are achievable, with the odd exception like the aforementioned black pudding for breakfast. I always work on the principle of if someone else can make it better for much the same,or little extra cost then why waste the time. With most of these recipes I feel the time will be well spent, and utterly delicious. Really glad I forked out the dosh on this one, to use the vernacular.
