Larder - Robin Gill

Robin Gill



The Larder Chef is set to change the way the world looks at and enjoys British food. Robin's recipes will take the reader on a journey discovering forgotten techniques that once were the backbone of the British cooks' skills, achieving startling fresh and modern ways with plate and palate. In the same way that Ottolenghi has defined a new way of celebrating Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines and their ingredients, Robin Gill has revolutionised the way British food is cooked and enjoyed through his philosophy of using classic techniques to produce bold new recipes.

Absolute freshness and seasonality is at the heart of his cooking. Game, when in season, is a hero of his menus and in spring the fruits of his city kitchen gardens that are attached to each of his restaurants provide fresh produce for the tables. Curing, fermenting and pickling is very much to the fore linking hand in hand with an unfettered philosophy of nose to tail, tail to gill and root to bloom.

In Robin's own words: "I want to share my techniques and prove that a more traditional cooking method is perfectly achievable in any home but the rewards and possibilities are endless. Bread, charcuterie, vegetable ferments, chutneys, pickles, curing and smoking are but a few techniques that you will learn that don't require a countryside location to achieve a healthy larder – which in turn will become your secret weapon in creating some inspiring dishes. What we are doing is nothing new but it's how we piece everything together, and this is what I believe to be the start of a new wave in modern cooking and the birth of the modern bistro."

This new book is a true reflection of Robin's ethos and brings his unique recipes to reader's home kitchens. Each recipe is accompanied by stunning photography by Paul Winch-Furness.

“Gill is a brilliant chef/restaurateur and terrific raconteur too. This very readable book has recipes for everything from pickles to cured meats for the ambitious home cook.” – Sunday Times
