Intrigued Amateur, 3 Mar. 2008
Having eaten in some of the finest restaurants in London via work, I am yet to experience Alan Murchison's food first hand; however I am aware of his sublime reputation.
Unlike other celebrity chefs it is Alan Murchison's simple elegance and creative food combinations that attracted me to his book. The vibrancy of his recipes are captured perfectly by Mark Law's gorgeous photography; He simply brings Murchison's cooking to life.
The book is beautifully presented and Law's photography flawless; and although Murchison's recipes may deter some amateur cooks at first glance, the recipes are clearly presented and surprisingly easy to follow.
Law's photography enhances the elegance of the book and certainly captures beautifully the way Murchison's food should be presented.
Of the numerous cook books I have picked up over the years, it is 'food for thought' that I will turn to when I want to impress.
