Although it’s true that I was for a time head chef in a popular
little restaurant in London’s swanky West End, the food that I
cooked then is not the kind of thing you will find here. Fancy
food is for fancy restaurants and an army of chefs to prepare
it. What I offer you here are the dishes that I cook at home for
family and friends. They are intended to be homely, inviting,
simple and delicious. From simple lunches to dinner party
fare, I offer you more than 40 years of lessons learned and
recipes selected. I hope you may find as much pleasure in
them as I have.
Free Kitchen eBooks
I've written a couple of books dealing with things very close
to my heart when it comes to working in the kitchen. One is
on First Aid in the kitchen and the other deals with hygiene.
These are completely free, you don't have to sign up for
anything and you are welcome to pass them on to your
friends. Go to First Aid and/or Hygiene to download them.
There are more than 60 kitchen hints and tips waiting for you
in a separate section which you will find here. In addition
there are audio buttons on some of the other pages. Click
them for a top tip relevant to the given recipe.

Most recipes, therefore, have an Imperial equivalent

The quickest way to separate
eggs is to crack them into a
bowl one at a time and lift the
yolks out with your fingers. It’s
easier than you may think
