The famed London restaurant, Le Caprice, has been a contemporary restaurant since the forties and has a menu of stunningly inventive and delicious new dishes and year-round favourites. In LE CAPRICE, these recipes have been collected for the first time. From simply the best Eggs Benedict and Chopped Steak to the Epicurean Baked Razor Clams and Truffle-Studded Roast Capon, the recipes from Le Caprice are a directory of what fashionable London fancies on a plate most often. Whether it is the lightest lunch, a restorative brunch or an indulgent first-night celebration, Le Caprice provides with practiced élan and panache. This beautiful book has been innovatively designed by the team responsible for the wonderful Ivy cookbook.
Alongside the tried and applauded recipes, AA Gill takes a characteristically oblique look at why eating out has become the most popular social and cultural activity in recent years
