Overview

The fashion in food is constantly changing

one minute it's nouvelle cuisine, the next it's Cal-Ital. dishes like chicken Kiev and coq au vin have been slung out, but made with fresh ingredients theses dishes could grace the most discerning table. This cookbook revives the recipes we once loved and found exciting, whether it be staples of the great post-war hotels and gentlemen's clubs like sole Veronique or potted shrimps or the bistro dishes that helped the 60s swing like coq au vin and steak au poivre. Even Black Forest gateau is here: a moist cake made with bitter chocolate, topped with Kirsch-drenched morello cherries and creme fraiche.
