Head Chef, The French at The Midland Hotel, Manchester
I picked this up for a couple of pounds in a cheap book store. It turned out to be full of great stuff and an absolute bargain! broken into categories it has Marcus Wareing on meats and Charlie trotter on veg to name but a few!
Complete (and heavy) with skills, techniques, world flavors and ideas.
So many chapters focusing on so many things you need know.
