This book is a collection of recipes from some of the top hotel and restaurant chefs of the day. That day being the late ’80s early '90s. It's quite interesting to note who is still forefront in our minds and who is not. The names that stick out are Brian Turner, Shaun Hill, Alastair Little and Gary Rhodes. It's probably because, looking at the photographs of these chefs in the book, they had youth on their side as much as talent.

Kit Chapman’s first collection of recipes by Chefs who would be termed “celebrity” nowadays, but this was only just beginning. David Wilson of Peat Inn was included, one of my all-time heroes. I learned a lot of Chef techniques.

These chefs where the giants we wanted to emulate as young chefs.
