Here in the office at The Great British Cookbook it can get pretty difficult to concentrate. With so many beautiful dishes to stare at all day, it’s easy to find your mouth watering and your tummy rumbling. All the food created by our 200 chefs looks mouth-wateringly good, and we can’t wait to share them with you.

So that’s what we’re going to do. The creativity, talent and skill of the chefs involved is mind boggling. I just look at these dishes, and they are truly pieces of art. This book is the perfect companion for those with an appreciation for fine dining, and good, hearty local produce. It'll give you a special insight into these world class culinary creations, whilst having the recipes to be able to recreate these gorgeous dishes in the comfort of your own home.

They’re just too good not to share!

Feast your eyes on this small sample of the hundreds of creations from The Great British Cookbook, we hope you are as excited as we are!
