From the cover: “The chefs of Gardner Merchant have put together in Classically Inspired a collection of their favourite versions of classic British recipes, to give a fascinating blend of the traditional and the contemporary. The chapters of the hook lead you through a menu full of imagination, from soups and starters to fish, meat and poultry as well as the best of British desserts and cakes. The traditional dishes of Steak and Kidney Pudding or Cod and Chips can be found alongside more contemporary recipes such as Reel Mullet with Caramelized Onions and Gooseberry Puree or Braised Oxtail with Chestnuts and Red Cabbage, all of them featuring the best of British ingredients. Included in the book are recipes from some of the best chefs working in Britain today — Anton Edelmann, Anton Mosimann, Paul and Jeanne Rankin, Gary Rhodes, Franco Taruschio and Antony Worrall Thompson — all as keen as we are to celebrate British food and cooking.”
