Cooking at the Merchant House

Cooking at the Merchant House

by ShaunHill (Author)


Finally, here is a chef cookbook that truly understands the needs and limitations of real people. Author Shaun Hill owns the Merchant House - a unique gourmet restaurant situated in his own home where he prepares all the food in his domestic kitchen. Despite having worked in some of the world's greatest hotel restaurants, Shaun wanted to get back to basics by cooking simple food on a small scale from top quality ingredients. In this book he shows just how exciting good home cooking can be by combining basic ingredients with a little imagination. Each chapter concentrates on individual food groups with all recipes well within the reach of the home cook and their kitchen. Village life and the practicalities of running the restaurant provide an evocative backdrop of rural England. Such is Shaun Hill's reputation that other top chefs plead to be allowed to come and work with him for free. At any time a new book by this Michelin-starred chef would generate great interest, but combined with his empathy with home cooks and their kitchens, Cooking at the Marchant House is a particularly exciting publishing event.
