5.0 out of 5 stars Surpassed all my expectations its truly amazing!, 18 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Square: Savoury: 1 (Hardcover)
This is a true testament of outstanding and remarkable culinary intelligence rather than a cookbook in the conventional sense.
The recipes come unsimplified from the kitchen of The Square its self... Reminds me of early Roux bros/ Landis no compromising
This isn't a book that the average chef de partie will be reading for a dish of the day. Nor is it a cutting edge Dani Garcia or another publication by the El Bulli boys, this is fantastically executed "classically" based cuisine, you could purchase a copy of Quay or Noma to find your (oh not again) foraged ingredients this is just pure quality,
Any body who watched professional master chef will recall Jason Atherton felling a little uncomfortable having to judge Mr Howard's proven experience...did he make the final? Oh you better believe it!
Sorry now back to the matter in hand..
It is neither a Ramsey/Oliver/ready steady cook type with 30-second recipes or how to use up all the left overs for a family supper in an instant....ererer
This gives a clear and penetrating insight into the creative processes of a hugely talented chef, also into the levels of skill and passion needed to lift a restaurant to the highest level and keep it there. 2 stars for 15 years..Wow
Howard show's fantastic pairing of flavours adding textures and colour, you can see a little Simon Hopkinson some were in there...Another super chef..
The fact that there are 150 in depth recipes accompanied by a fantastic picture of each amazing dish that is in itself a true bench mark of the highest standards of London's fantastic food scene.
I will not mention any of the dishes as you can read that anywhere else....
What I will say is at 40 Pounds its amazing value.
And I cannot wait a year for the sweet edition....
