Following the success of the ‘Signature Chefs’ recipe book from the Heart of England and Wales in 2015, the next edition focuses on the South West of England and Channel Islands for 2016/17.
Foreword by Chef Angela Hartnett (MBE) of the LimeWood Hotel Group, with contributions from Two Michelin Star Chefs Michael Wignall (Gidleigh Park) David Everitt Matthias (Le Champignon Sauvage) and Whatley Manor. Others include Mark Hix who was awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours List 2016, Paul Ainsworth, Shaun Rankin and Alex Bluett.
Celebrating the Greatest British chefs, venues and producers of the regions, Signature Chefs raises the bar in respect to quality British hospitality and supports British publishing. Each of the books are printed and hand finished in England, supporting British publishing and offering the contributing chefs the opportunity to personalise their own covers. A first in the UK.
“We are honoured to be able to work with some the Britain’s Greatest Chefs,” comments founder and publisher James Day “It is therefore fitting that our books reflect their passion for perfection at every touch point and support British suppliers, by printing them in the UK. Signature Chefs are a celebration of the Greatest Chefs, we also profile key venues in the region and highlight local heroes in the form of the producers who supply these venues.”
Over 50 recipes are featured, each with quality photography, as well as food and drink features from key chefs and British producers. Chef interviews feature throughout, with unique insights into the passions and motivations of some of the Greatest British Chefs.
Accommodation guide is also included, with a location map of each venue.
GourmetXperiences. Each of the veneus and their Chefs are also asked to contribute a unique ‘GourmetXperience’ throughout 2017 where purchasers of the book can participate in specially created ‘experiences’ including additional courses celebrating the Greatest British produce, English Sparkling wine matching, even cooking with chef in their Michelin Star kitchen. Overnight breaks with room upgrades and even special pacakges on line at some of Greatest British Suppliers websites are also available.
