Product Description

Amazon Review

Among the latest batch of celebrity chefs, Marco Pierre White is undoubtedly one of the most talented and outspoken. The blurb for White’s Hell's Kitchen describes him as ‘legendary’, and for once the adjective is not just hyperbole. And while this same blurb mentions White’s outspoken opinions and reminiscences, the most important element here is the collection of 100 tempting recipes, from starters and soups to ambitious (but achievable) meat and fish main courses and (of course) the exquisite deserts that are one of the chef's specialities. As many of the great French chefs will assert, the basic sauces, stocks and essences are at the heart of fine cuisine, and they are lovingly celebrated in the recipes here.

Among the most useful features here are the shortcuts and tips designed to get us through more difficult aspects of cookery. And it is particularly welcome to note that the recipes (though usually contained in just one or two pages) are still detailed enough to give us the wherewithal to create, say Breast of Pigeon with Foie Gras wrapped in Cabbage or Panaché of Langoustines and Sea Scallops with Cucumber and Ginger (for the latter recipe, Marco Pierre White points out that langoustines, while fished in the Scottish seas, are mostly exported to France and Italy, making them hard to find the UK -- as well as expensive). But after reading the recipes here, readers will be inspired to make the effort.

It goes without saying that we won't be able to achieve results as impressive as Marco Pierre White, but the recipes here are designed to give us the confidence necessary to tackle them. And we can dream, can’t we? --Barry Forshaw

Review

"You don't have to be a genius to be a good cook. Chopping food isn't difficult. Good cooking is about doing lots of small things well." (Marco Pierre White)

Thanks god that i didnt buy this book...Basically it is collection of recipies from his old books...and i have them all Even the photographs are old! Yes, the dishes that were featured in programme itself is not in this book! Why? I believe they brought the book out before the programme! But none the less, its good introductory book for MPW beginners!

Unoriginal book from a master chef! what a shame!

Basically I am really disappointed. No fish pie, no treacle tart, no shepherds pie. Oh but there is the usual stuff like suckling pig and pigs head. Not that I don't know how to cook them already but I want to make them with the MPW twist.
The very least I would have expected is that the dishes they cooked on the programme would ALL be in the book....no so. They are not there and there are a lot that were never even mentioned on the programme. Why call a book Hell's Kitchen if the recipes bare little resemblence to the programme? Think I'll pass this one on.

What a disappontment, I also expected to see the receipes from the programme in the book. They are not. Why? where are they? Are they a closely guarded secret? You should stipulate to customers they are are not in the book, before they purchase.

I purchased this book to get the recipe's from the programme, especially The Fish Pie and Shepherds Pie. Yes, we all know how to make a fish pie and a shepherds pie, but the guests in Hell's Kitchen said they were so delicious that I wanted to know exactly how it was done. Why are they not in the book?

Like everyone else I thought the popular fish dish and shepherds pie dish would have been featured in the book,everyone seemed to rave over them. Being a beginner in the kitchen I thought I'd give them a try. I was dissapointed with most of the other recipes that were in the book.
