Claridge's: The Cookbook

By Martyn Nail and Meredith Erickson

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

The debut cookbook from London's legendary luxury hotel.

"...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!

Vogue Essentials: Little Black Dress

Chloe Fox
Authors:
Chloe Fox

Ninety years after Vogue dubbed Coco Chanel's simple short black 'Ford' dress 'the frock that all the world will wear', the perfect Little Black Dress continues to be every woman's most sought after fashion essential. At its classic best, the LBD doesn't just make its wearer look beautiful and stylish; it empowers her too. Dress it up, pare it down, wear it forever - the Little Black Dress is a fashion essential. From the bold, dramatic designs of Zandra Rhodes to the eye-catching LBDs by Vivienne Westwood, from Elizabeth Hurley's iconic safety pin Versace number to the tight off-the-shoulder Christina Stambolian dress worn by Princess Diana, Vogue Essentials: Little Black Dress celebrates the very best of the LBD.'One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress'Karl Lagerfeld

Vogue Essentials: Handbags

Carolyn Asome
Authors:
Carolyn Asome

Since its inception more than a century ago, Vogue has been fascinated by the infinite incarnations of the handbag. From the myriad surrealist creations of Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel to Prada's democratic nylon backpack, from the exclusive Hermés Birkin bag to individual vintage gems, the handbag is fashion's most inventive accessory. No shock, then, that the handbag market today is worth more than a hundred billion dollars. From each season's must-have to five-figure rarities, the handbag symbolizes the inexplicable power of fashion desire. Vogue Essentials: Handbags explores all the greatest hits in a collection that any fashion devotee will covet.'Any woman can wear shoes and handbags: it's not a question of how tall you are, how skinny you are, how blonde or blue-eyed or tanned or whatever.' Marc Jacobs

How to eat a peach

Diana Henry
Authors:
Diana Henry

'This is an extraordinary piece of food writing, pitch perfect in every way. I couldn't love anyone who didn't love this book.' - Nigella LawsonWhen Diana Henry was sixteen she started a menu notebook (an exercise book carefully covered in wrapping paper) in which she wrote up the meals she wanted to cook. She kept this book for years. Putting a menu together is still her favourite part of cooking. Menus aren't just groups of dishes that have to work on a practical level (meals that cooks can manage), they also have to work as a succession of flavours. But what is perhaps most special about them is the way they can create very different moods - menus can take you places, from an afternoon at the seaside in Brittany to a sultry evening eating mezze in Istanbul. They are a way of visiting places you've never seen, revisiting places you love and celebrating particular seasons.How to Eat a Peach contains many of Diana's favourite dishes in menus that will take you through the year and to different parts of the world.
