"...not that I intend to die, but when I do, I don't want to go to heaven, I want to go to Claridge's" Spencer Tracy

"I love to check myself into Claridge's now and then for a few nights - just to spoil myself" Jade Jagger

"When I pass through the revolving doors into the glamorous lobby of Claridge's in London, I always feel a thrill. You enter a world of sophistication and wonderful service... Claridge's is my ultimate treat." Lulu Guinness

"It's the best in the world" Alex James

An art deco jewel set in the heart of London's Mayfair, Claridge's - one of the world's best luxury hotels - has long been known for inspiring menus and exceptional dining from breakfasts and elevenses, through lunch and afternoon tea, and on to drinks, dinner and the dessert cart. Claridge's: The Cookbook celebrates that heritage in style, with a collection of over 100 of the best-loved dishes and drinks from The Foyer and Reading Room, the Bar and The Fumoir. With interludes ranging from the magic of Christmas to how to host dinner for 100, the extraordinary experience of dining at Claridge's is brought to life in book form.

The book will include delectable dishes and drinks for every time of day: from the Arnold Bennett omelette, to the Lobster, langoustine & crab cocktail and the Smoked duck salad. Treats include Cheddar Eccles cakes and a Raspberry marshmallow. Savour everything from the prized Claridge's chicken pie to a slice of Venison Wellington, with some Truffled macaroni gratin or Pommes château.

Share the essence of Claridge's with family and friends, in the comfort of your own home - and enjoy!

The Midlife Kitchen

Mimi Spencer, Sam Rice

Mimi Spencer, Sam Rice

As featured in The Times and The Daily Mail.Are you at a point in your life where health is becoming more of a priority? Are you confused by ever-changing headlines that contrive to make the simple act of eating a peril rather than a pleasure? The Midlife Kitchen has the answers.Midlife is not a time to be concerned with food fads and foibles, but rather a glorious opportunity to wrest back control of your eating in the interests of health, happiness and a long life. Taste must certainly come first, but with health firmly snapping at its heels, underpinned by well-established nutritional common sense. Busy lives require simple, sustaining recipes that incorporate health-giving ingredients without too much fanfare or fuss. This book is not about 'clean-eating' or super foods, detoxing or restriction. Instead, it is about building up a balanced and diverse diet, with less sugar, better fat and good carbs. Alongside each recipe is the Midlife Kitchen emblem, the star anise. With each of the eight seeds representing a specific Midlife Health category - such as Hormone Harmony; Mind, Memory, Mood; or Heart Health - authors Sam and Mimi are able to provide simple nutritional information. Health tips explain the benefits of certain ingredients, while 'Why We Love It' sections explore the advantages of cooking each dish. Midlife Must-Haves show how to create homemade essentials such as Midlife Grown-up Granola, Midlife Power Porridge and Midlife Sweetener. From Seared Sirloin on Pan-roasted Veg to The Mother of All Greek Salads, Nurture Bircher to Three-ginger Fire Cake, the recipes in this book come together to create a vibrant menu bursting with mouth-watering flavours.
