A Kitchen Chronicle. The second volume of The Kitchen Diaries.
A collection of notes, essays, jottings and recipes compiled over the last three or four years. As you might expect from the title, this is a very personal book, written and photographed in my own kitchen. Not a television tie-in, but many of the recipes are those from the BBC1 series Simple Suppers and Simple Cooking.
Over 200 photographs of things I have cooked at home over the last few years, taken as always by Jonathan Lovekin.

"His words touch something deep and primitive: appetite. A gorgeous book in the pure sense." Sunday Telegraph
