This year's most anticipated cookbook, from London's most talked-about restaurant
Occupying an urban space in London's Fitzrovia, DABBOUS is the restaurant that has stunned critics and diners since it opened in 2012. Behind the sheet metal door, Ollie Dabbous creates light, modern dishes that are both sophisticated and delicate; jewel-like creations that are in stark contrast with the restaurant's industrial decor.
The book's Spring season includes 'Mixed alliums in a chilled pine infusion' and 'Braised halibut with pink purslane', whilst Summer features 'Ripe tomato in its own juice' and 'Elderflower sherbet'. In Autumn there is 'Barbecued Iberico pork, savoury acorn praline, radishes and crushed green apple', and Winter boasts 'Coddled egg, smoked butter and mushrooms', 'Mash and gravy' and 'Raw beef with cigar and rye'.
With timeless design and serene photography by Joakim Blockstrom, this is without doubt the most desirable cookery book of the year.
A thing of beauty Observer - PRAISE FOR THE RESTAURANT: Food is presented with minimal exposition, and from that simple starting point, it blows you away -- Tim Hayward Financial Times This restaurant is a game-changer -- Fay Maschler Evening Standard Indescribably good -- Giles Coren The Times The food is kept so close to the soil, the hedgerow, the pool and the tide, but is still as romantic as a fairy ring ... Each of us were properly, lovingly, unforgettably gobsmacked -- A. A. Gill Sunday Times
