The Ivy reveals the secrets of its kitchen - many of them delightfully simple - for the first time. Known as a theatrical, literary and artistic haunt, in recent times, the restaurant has reached new heights of culinary excellence, while keeping its roots in simple, quick and accessible food, including their justly famous salmon fishcakes. A.A. Gill has combined the recipes with the history and atmosphere of the restaurant which, together with the superb photography in colour and black and white, has made for a beautiful book that will appeal to the cook and non-cook alike.

This was one of the first books on a restaurant. It was a glimpse into the food scene in London for me stuck up in Scotland.
