The first 'proper' chefs book I bought and studied and realised how little I knew. At the time I thought the UK was everything and this opened my eyes to a world of gastronomy. Its intense and almost undecipherable in places but utterly breathtaking.

No serious cookbook collection is complete without the guys that started it all. When I first saw these books I had never seen anything like it before. They changed everything and I was lucky enough to have eaten there before it closed.

One of the most beautiful books ever! I bought the spanish version because the english wasn't out at the time. Technique after technique, that still blows my mind.

Michael O'Hare


Technically the greatest cookbook I've ever seen. This would be my number 1 if the other two weren't so iconic.

Joel Serra Bevin


For the pure culinary genius that Adria brought to the world.
