About the Author
Simon Hopkinson's first book Roast Chicken and Other Stories has been voted the Most Useful Cookery Book of All Time in a survey of food writers, chefs and restaurateurs in Waitrose Food Illustrated magazine. In 1978 he became the youngest chef to win an Egon Ronay star before moving to Hilaire on Old Brompton Road in London in 1983. His friendship with one particular customer, Terence Conran, finally led to the opening of Bibendum in 1987 where he worked as a chef until 1995 when he retired to concentrate on writing. His other bestselling books include Roast Chicken Second Helpings, Gammon and Spinach, The Conran Cookbook, The Prawn Cocktail Years and, most recently, The Good Cook.
