Summary

Featuring a forward by a bestselling food writer from The Telegraph, this collection from the newspaper’s archives celebrates all things culinary. 
 
The opening of the Savoy in 1889, with Auguste Escoffier at the helm of its kitchen, rang in the new era of the celebrity chef. Though food is intrinsic to our very existence, the public’s interest was piqued and our pursuit of gastronomy has been on the rise ever since. Fortunately, The Telegraph has been there to document it. 
 
Trawling through the archives, features writer Sarah Rainey, has read through the great and the good as well as the more nostalgic recipes and culinary contemplations. Contributions from literary figures and their kitchens such as A.S. Byatt, sit beautifully alongside the slightly less erudite but equally wonderful entries that are a snapshot into the era they were written. 
 
The hidden gems of the past include interviews with “up-and-coming” chefs including Richard Stein, producing the best of New British Cooking in Padstow, not to mention the flamboyant Egon Ronay extolling the virtues of the “new” trend of coffee houses. 
 
Sometimes preventing hollandaise from splitting when you are sweating in a hot kitchen is just not worth it. So take some time out, sit down and read about what Mary Berry did before Great British Bake Off, how Heston Blumenthal wasn’t the first person to make weird flavours of ice cream and the trade tips from the perennially progressive Elizabeth David. 
 
With a foreword by food journalist and author Bee Wilson, this collection is the perfect gift for your favorite foodie or home chef.
Available since: 03/05/2015.
Print length: 337 pages.

    Try one of the 50 recipes perfected by some of the world's best bartenders, and discover the fascinating story of the ingredient behind every well-made drink.
    
      A classic cocktail relies on relatively few ingredients so every element has to be just right. Bitters, those little bottles you will find in any bar worth its salt, are the unsung heroes of the cocktail world. Where would the Manhattan be without orange bitters? Where would the Old-fashioned be without angostura bitters? Former bartender, cocktail historian and founder of the House of Botanicals bitters and spirits company, Adam Elan-Elmegirab presents the results of a decade of research into how bitters came to be an integral part of a perfected cocktail, guiding you from the early days of snake-oil salesmen through to the birth of the cocktail, Prohibition and the renaissance of this little-known ingredient as an essential part of the contemporary bar scene. Adam outlines the key botanicals and explains the science of flavour, describing how each characteristic can be deployed for maximum impact, and summarizes the key techniques for making great cocktails. Most importantly, he provides 50 recipes created by him and some of the world's leading bartenders. These exceptional drinks showcase the different characteristics of bitters and how they can refine a cocktail in unique ways.
