Product Description

From the Back Cover

Quaglino's is one of the world's most successful and talked about restaurants, designed to be functional, sensational and unforgettable. On average, 7000 people eat at Quaglino's each week; the menu is simple, delicious and often seasonal, featuring pristine game, sea-fresh fish and crustacea, rotisserie fire-grilled meats and heavenly pavlovas. Quaglino's: The Cookbook is the official book of the restaurant, celebrating the vision of its creators, Terence Conran and Joel Kissin, and the culinary expertise of Chef Martin Webb. Over 100 recipes are included, all of which have been adapted from the menu for use in a domestic kitchen. Richard Whittington, hailed as one of today's best food writers, also provides a fascinating overview of the skill and enterprise that combine to make such an enormous restaurant work.

Gave this to Mr. Gordon, the chef at Fork Handles, St. Peters Rd., Petersfield. He doesn't need it but just meant as a friendly gesture. We are still on speaking terms. It was the cover that got me.
For some reason, Fork Handles is where the professionals gather?!?
For me I still adhere to my dear old mother's, Kate Aitken 1953 cookbook, which is pocket book size and has fallen to bits over the years.

If you are after original recipes to surprise and delight guests then this book is a must. Preparation is not onerous, ingredients are not run of the mill but not impossible to find either and alternatives are suggested. My all time favouite must be the rabbit legs wrapped in prosciutto and stuffed with a herb butter. It is a pity that the restaurant rarely cooks many of the dishes in this book nowadays. These are the dishes that wowed punters in the ealy nineties, so much so that despite its size you still had to wait weeks for a reservation. Buy the book, see what all the fuss as about!!

I am sure those who have a passion for cooking have experienced disappointment big or small, when a newly purchased receipe book does not live up to your expectations or publishers'high praises. I was looking for something that is equally as trust-worthy as Le Gavroche cook book by Michel Roux for a long time and unearthed this gem of a cookery book at last. The receips are realistic and practical and yet with successful results. The Ox tail receipe is our dinner party favourite now and the dessert is simple and fantastic. Just love it.

Bought this for a house gift for a friend who is an amateur chef. Quag's was one of our favourite London restaurants when we lived there. Lots of great recipes that can easily be prepared at home.
