About this title


British food was never renowned for its flair and inventiveness until the 1980s when Marco Pierre White led an extraordinary revolution in British cuisine. Passionate and unpredictable, he inspired many of the top chefs in Britain today. In this insightful book, Simon Wright exposes the revolution for what it was and shows how the passionate idealism of the early years has been compromised. He travels inside the brotherhood of chefs and tells the very distinct tales of Gordon Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal, Shaun Hill, and Marcus Wareing—four men who have risen through the vicious climate of the kitchen to make a special mark. Theirs is an elite band, tough to join, and these are the stories of how they qualified for membership.

About the Author:

Simon Wright was editor of the AA Restaurant Guide until July 2002 when he resigned in protest because of the celebrated row over the rating of Petrus restaurant in London. He now works as a restaurant consultant for Optimum television, a freelance food writer and is a partner in Y Polyn, a pub restaurant near his home in Camarthen, West Wales, where he can be found behind the bar and sometimes in front of it, but is rarely spotted in the kitchen.
