54 of the UK’s most-loved chefs, including Jamie Oliver, Tom Kerridge, Raymond Blanc and Angela Hartnett, have contributed to a unique collection of home-cooked recipes, in aid of charity Hospitality Action, to mark the one-year anniversary of the first national Covid-19 lockdown.
Chefs at Home, published by Jon Croft Editions and distributed by Bloomsbury Publishing, is a compilation of the dishes our nation’s most renowned chefs prepared at home with their own families when there were limited ingredients on the shelves and queues at supermarkets.
This simple, accessible and nourishing collection of recipes will give 100% of all royalties to Hospitality Action which helps offer vital support to all who work within the hospitality industry in the UK. They have provided a safety net for hospitality retirees facing isolation and they’ve worked hard to protect the mental and emotional wellbeing of those most vulnerable across UK hospitality.
Jason Atherton, Chef-Patron and Principal Patron, Hospitality Action says: “When lockdown began in March 2020, we all felt a deep sense of loss, but this was tempered by the joy of spending precious time at home with our families. Behind our closed doors, we all did what we do best: we cooked. And cooked. So, when Hospitality Action asked us to contribute to Chefs at Home, we had lists of recipes as long as your arm to offer up. All the dishes in this book were conceived and cooked with love: think butties, Monster Munch and mash, not foams, soils and emulsions.”
With over 100 recipes, from brunch to bakes and from veggie delights to meat feasts, recipes include:
Tom Kerridge's fish finger sandwich (with added monster munch)
Heston Blumenthal's ratatouille
