  • “It really is a life's work, a mixture of autobiography and a great refection of the very best that Yorkshire has to offer the world of gastronomy”

    Michel Roux OBE

  • “This is a must-have coffee table book which not only looks good with the chocolate brown suede cover, is also great to cook from. Not all great chefs can also write, but this one can! The book reads like a conversation curled up by the log fire; full of warmth, humour and humility and inspirational recipes. Like his cooking, the book is set to be a classic in its own right and one to enjoy for a long time to come”

    Elaine M Lemm, The New York Times

  • “As you read through the recipes, you feel you really know the people behind the ingredients and the chefs who cook them. The book’s luxurious brown cover with embossed writing gives way to matt pages and a series of muted photographs both in black and white and colour by award winning photographers Antonio Olmos and Sam Bailey. There is nothing glossy about this book, it is just a rich reflection on the life and food of one of Britain’s best known chefs”

    Susan McGeever, Masterchefs
