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.

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.
