The world’s finest chefs and the essential classic recipes for anyone who loves to cook.
“These are the recipes that you must cook at least once in your life.”
Internationally acclaimed chef Josh Emett has selected the most beloved and iconic dishes from the past fifty years to create the ultimate cooking companion for the home cook.
Over three hundred time-honoured and modern classic recipes from one hundred and fifty of the world’s finest chefs and cooks – Elena & Juan Mari Arzak, David Chang, Jacques Pepin, Guy Savoy, Gordon Ramsay, Ruth Rogers, Rick Stein, Nancy Silverton, Daniel Humm, Marco Pierre-White, Nobu Matsuhisa, Michael Caines, Skye Gyngell, Angela Hartnett, Jason Atherton, Bo Songvisava and Dylan Jones, Ben Shewry, Alla Wolf-Tasker, Anne-Sophie Pic, Peter Gordon, Peter Gilmore, Colin Fassnidge and many more – are painstakingly recreated by Emett and beautifully photographed by multi award- winning photographer, Kieran E. Scott.
Divided into nine detailed sections ranging from staples, soups, salads and vegetables to the key protein groups, baking and desserts, each recipe is accompanied by Emett’s personal guide, including his tips on the fundamental knowledge elements and complementary dishes, and featuring a comprehensive reference section encompassing requisite basic recipes, conversion charts, glossaries, and kitchen equipment.
Traversing the globe from Chinese Master Stock to Moules Mariniere and Moussaka; Spaghetti alla Puttanesca, Shakshuka and Challah; from Millefeuille and meringues to Baklava, Halwa, Bakewell Tart and the Quintessential Apple Pie, this stunning modern classic is
an indispensible kitchen tool for anyone who loves to cook.
