This is a handbook for anybody who enjoys simple, honest food but can do without the foam, fuss and trickery it’s often served with. It’s also about the other elements that make a great meal: honed hosting skills, sourcing the best produce and using the sharpest kitchen kit. Plus, Monocle offer a global hit-list of must-visit restaurants from Adelaide to Zürich and the freshest markets, shops and producers. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to turn their love of food into a livelihood. Expect advice on everything from starting a bar to rolling out a restaurant chain or penning a cookbook. There are also recipes from Monocle’s favourite restaurants, plus a selection of timetested dishes developed by the team in Monocle’s London kitchen.
