"This is London's Best Restaurant. By any criterion you can think of it's one of the most enjoyable restaurant experiences we’ve had anywhere in the world."
"A cookbook is no substitute for a coveted reservation. But for fans of the Chiltern Firehouse in London, or those who dream of its Caesar salad with chicken skin, a lavish new cookbook may serve as the next best thing."

“In a perfect world, we’d all move to London and live in the Chiltern Firehouse hotel. After a long day, we’d breeze home, where a white-jacketed bartender would slide us a deftly mixed Vesper (or Manhattan or Negroni) in a cut-crystal glass. And then we’d just savor the moment, admiring the glow of the gently calibrated lighting and the elegant lines of the marble-topped horseshoe bar.”
"This splendid collection is a feast for the eyes as well as the palate, and cookbook and fine-dining enthusiasts will revel in the opportunity to refine their skills while creating world-class meals in their own kitchens."
