5.0 out of 5 stars A great British book, 3 Dec 2009
This review is from: Yes, Chef! 20 Great British Chefs 100 Great British Recipes (Hardcover)
Like a Who's Who of the great of the British restaurant scene, this is a book which presents 100 signature recipes from 20 of our very best chefs. Compiled by the producer of BBC's Saturday Kitchen (on which show many of these chefs have appeared) and the son of the head of the Michelin restaurant guides, you would expect nothing less than the richest pickings of what this country has to offer and that's exactly what you get. This makes for a very diverse selection of chefs and recipes, from the Michelin-starred to gastropub greats, but it's this eclecticism that pleases so very much. As a snapshot of the current state of British cooking, it makes for a very impressive picture. Names such as Mark Hix, Marcus Wareing and Jason Atherton are probably familiar to all and their selections and unveiled secrets are probably worth the cover price alone, but their are some real discoveries in here too, from the wonderful food of Nathan Outlaw to the homely pub grub of Emily Watkins. Each chef presents five recipes and all include at least one starter, one main and one dessert (thus allowing you to do three courses from your favourite chef if you so wish). As a cookbook this book will provide an amazing range of stunning dishes that should suit all budgets, occasions and dinner guests; as a restaurant guide, it's given me a number of ideas about where to go for my next great meal. Recommended, and a great gift for every foodie.
