“This is hands down the best cookbook I have bought in the last 5 years. For once every recipe has an image and is easy to follow. A good book for those who are looking to elevate their cooking. Hopefully the author will create a follow up - it is that impressive”
“A keen cook opens a new cook book with a sense of anticipation and excitement, and you are not disappointed by the alluring soft, black matt cover of James Mackenzie’s debut book. Each page presents an intriguing insight into the culinary adventures of Mackenzie at the Pipe and Glass Inn, an award winning traditional pub/restaurant in South Dalton, East Yorkshire”
“On The Menu is outstanding. The recipes are sensible and you will indeed be driven to make them. That surely should be the test of a good cookbook. It will likely spend its life on the kitchen table. Your kids will leaf through this just as James turned the pages of his mum’s cookbooks. Your family and friends will love these dishes that are unfussy but have that ooohh-aaahh factor that is so often missing in chef-authored books. This is sure to become a prizewinner”

Author ProfileJames Mackenzie is one of England's brightest young chefs who uses his uniquely imaginative approach to produce an outstanding take on British food. Quality local and seasonal produce is at the heart of his cooking.
James is the proprietor and head chef of the Michelin Starred Pipe and Glass Inn, which he and his wife Kate have owned since 2006. Having quickly established a reputation for unrivalled quality in the area, they have transformed the 17th century inn into a world-class Michelin-Starred destination.
In their first year the Pipe and Glass Inn won the Yorkshire Life "Dining Pub Of The Year Award" and, in 2007, won the same publication's "Restaurant Of The Year" title. Further recognition came for the Mackenzies in 2008, being named as the "Best Newcomer" in The Northern Hospitality Awards, entering the list of "40 Best Restaurants Outside London" at The London Restaurant Awards, also being voted into "The Top 30 Gastro Pubs in the UK" by PubChef Magazine and, finally, being awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand. In 2009, the Pipe and Glass Inn won Enjoy England's "Taste Of England" honour as well as retaining its Michelin Bib Gourmand. The ultimate accolade became reality when, in January 2010, the Pipe and Glass Inn achieved Michelin Star status, one of only 10 pubs in the UK ever to gain this much coveted position.
