This recipe book remains a favourite, kept alive and always in my thoughts — albeit rather dog-eared — some years after his eponymous restaurant in Soho was shuttered. Once described by Eater as “jazzed-up junk food”, to me it’s much simpler and yet better than those words imply. This is food that comforts, embraces, and cheers. It’s food that reminds you of how your Mum (or Dad) provided for you and the joy that food brought you, whether you were cold, tired, hurt, upset or simply just hungry. It’s that clichė of a restaurant and food that anyone can take refuge in and feel at home. Bring on more of the clichés, say I. Noteworthy here are Lentils, soft-boiled Egg & Anchovy along with Braised Chicory & Spec.
