`Irish-born Corrigan's foodie thoughts and reminiscences go hand in hand with his distinctive and beautiful recipes in this gorgeous new book. A lyrical writer, his book is one that will be equally appealing propped up next to the stove or read curled up on the sofa.'
-- BBC Good Food Magazine
About the Author
Richard Corrigan was born in County Meath, Ireland, to a farming family for whom ‘the supply chain was as short as it gets’. He now runs the acclaimed and Michelin-starred Lindsay House in Soho and is a presenter on BBC2’s Full on Food.

I was bought Richard's book as a present this Christmas, and honestly, I have read the whole thing from cover to cover. It's as much an entertaining story of where his passion for food has come from as a recipe book. But as you read you can almost feel yourself soaking up the knowledge about food on every page at the same time as enjoying the story - superb.
His happy, self-sufficient Irish farmhouse upbringing gave him the building blocks for the treatment of food in his restaurants in Dublin and London. (As someone fortunate enough to eat at his new restaurant, Corrigan's in Mayfair, in December 2008, I can report it is a triumph of simple food prepared, cooked and served extremely well, without fuss at very reasonable prices.)
Another cook book in a field already overladen with the genre? Yes, and thank you for it! It is as much philosophy as recipes, well-illustrated with grainy photos; a book which will give pleasure both to the cook and the comsumer who is more interested in consumption than preparation.
The recipes are not always easy but are certainly accurate (unlike many other books) and produce delicious food.
It contains much on his views on food and its provenance and is beautifully photographed throughout.

A lovely book! So much in it, and an interesting read as well. Recipes look good, but it's just before Christmas, so will read 'after the port!', and try some in the new year!Published on 21 Dec. 2011 by M. D. Leith
Great book, as always, as this mans ideas work every time, unlike some of the other cooks who spend more time on the tvPublished on 3 Oct. 2011 by Wing
