It is sometimes easy to forget just how important MPW was to the gastronomic explosion in the UK and to creating the world of the celebrity chef as we know it now. This is the one book that just about every chef I know owns.
This was the first cookbook I ever owned and was bought for me by my mother before I left Rotherham to go to university in London. Its step by step instructions helped me take my first wobbly steps in to the world of cooking and dinner parties. I still occasionally make the turkey in cider recipe from it today.
