5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, one-off book, 9 Dec 2010

This review is from: The Good Food Guide: Recipes - Celebrating 60 of the UK's Best Chefs and Restaurants (Hardcover)
If you can't go to the restaurant, bring the restaurant to you...
I bought this for myself when it came out, and I approve of it so heartily that I am buying another copy to give as a Christmas present. I love cooking and I love eating out, and this book is perfect for me as the recipes are from restaurants I have either eaten in, or dream about eating in! How often do you eat at a restaurant and want to know exactly how they made the dish? This book does this, often with signature dishes which is nice. The recipes are clearly laid out, I haven't had any problems following them. Faves so far: Hake on a bed of warm tomatoes with chorizo crumbs (Chris Bradley's recipe) and sticky toffee pudding (Mary Ann Gilchrist), even though mine didn't look as neat. Haven't plucked up the courage for Heston's recipe yet (nitrogen poached green tea and lime mousse!! legend). I liked the page of background information you get about each of the chefs; it's a great indicator of how much culinary talent there is in this country. Only thing, being a hardback you'll need something to wedge it open when you're cooking as it's a bit hard to keep it open. But it will make a beautiful gift. Very pleased.
