Details: Product Description Winner, 2011 Galaxy National Book Awards Food and Drink Book of the Year Simon Hopkinson loves food and he knows how to cook it. The Good Cook is the result of over 40 years' experience and is based on Simon's belief that a good cook loves eating as much as cooking. How the ingredients you choose and the way you cook them will turn a good recipe into a great dish. That a cheap cut of meat cooked with care can taste as nice as a choice cut prepared by indifferent hands. Structured around Simon's passion for good ingredients (Anchovy and Aubergine, Cheese and Wine, Smoked and Salted Fish, Ham, Bacon and A Little Pig) and written with Simon's trademark perfectionism and precision, this is a book that you will cherish for life. Review How to make “outstanding dishes good enough for a restaurant but from the comfort of your own home”. He makes the ordinary extraordinary with no need for a song and a dance. ― The Telegraph Trends, for him, come and go, whereas a good pie, stew or roast is for life. ― The Guardian No-nonsense is the key to The Good Cook. It returns the pie, the tart, the cutlet, the leftover, the pot roast and the toasted snack to the centre of the British eating experience ― The Independent The book is, in true Simon Hopkinson style, precise without ever being fussy. ― Rachel Allen The Good Cook reminds me of a cashmere jumper. Its origins are humble, it feels ever so slightly decadent, but ultimately it is enormously comforting. ― Caterer & Hotelkeeper Book Description Simon Hopkinson loves food and he knows how to cook it.

About the Author Born in Bury, Lancashire, Simon Hopkinson left school at 17 to begin a career as a chef. He opened his first restaurant, the Shed, near Fishguard, just before his 21st birthday. In 1983 he launched himself on the London restaurant scene, becoming chef at Hilaire in the Old Brompton Road. He swiftly found himself one of the most acclaimed young chefs in the business and his friendship with Terence Conran led to the opening of Bibendum in the restored Michelin building in 1987. He retired as a full-time chef in 1995 to concentrate more on writing. As well as Roast Chicken and Other Stories his books include Gammon & Spinach (1998) and The Prawn Cocktail Years (1999) and he also writes a column in the Independent. His critically acclaimed cookery writing has won him the André Simon award, and the Glenfiddich Award three times.
