More About the Author

Born in Bury, Lancashire, Simon Hopkinson left school at 17 to begin a career as a chef. He opened his first restaurant, the Shed, near Fishguard, just before his 21st birthday. In 1983 he launched himself on the London restaurant scene, becoming chef at Hilaire in the Old Brompton Road. He swiftly found himself one of the most acclaimed young chefs in the business and his friendship with Terence Conran led to the opening of Bibendum in the restored Michelin building in 1987. He retired as a full-time chef in 1995 to concentrate more on writing. As well as Roast Chicken and Other Stories and Second Helpings of Roast Chicken his books include Gammon & Spinach, The Prawn Cocktail Years (written jointly with Lindsey Bareham), Week In, Week Out, The Vegetarian Option and The Good Cook. His critically acclaimed cookery writing has won him the André Simon award, and the Glenfiddich Award three times.

84 of 90 people found the following review helpful By A Customer of AMAZON-UK! on 24 Nov 2006
Format: Paperback
.....this book is truly a real gem that deserves to be discovered!

Within the pastel covers are not the oodles of colour photos that would normally encourage one to flick through - in fact the only illustrations contained therein are subtle and simple, and limited to the opening of each new chapter.
But, strangely enough, that is all that is required.

From the back cover:

'Following the phenomenal success of Roast Chicken and Other Stories, 'Second Helpings' takes as a starting point forty-seven of Simon Hopkinson's favourite ingredients, from apples to linguine, lettuce to truffles.
His recipes, which have in common the love of good food prepared to please rather than simply impress, are drawn not only from classic French and British cooking but also from around the world, from Austria to Thailand and India to Spain. As well as the ultimate roast chicken recipe, Simon's many fans will find new inspiration in recipes which range from 'Smoked Haddock Chowder' and 'Thai Pork Rissoles with Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce' to 'Spiced Cucumber Salad' and 'Lemon and Ginger Syllabub'.

Second Helpings of Roast Chicken opens to 283 high quality, shiny pages split over 47 main chapters, a foreword by Lord Birkett, an introduction, a 'Recipe Index' and a 'General Index'.

Like the first book, this sequel is laid out in the same format with each chapter based around the key ingredient.

I bought both these books by S Hopkinson (roast chicken and other stories) at the same time and read them cover to cover enjoying the wise and witty advice and anecdote about all things edible and dinkable. Very practical, even for those with less experience in cooking I imagine.

Still a delightful read and a selection of very achievable recipes. Simon continues a long tradition of essays which inform and get your mouth watering.

All simon Hopkinson's books are great. He is a cook who can always be relied on to create recipes which work and are different from the usual.
