The definitive cookbook on using local ingredients to create unforgettable dishes. Throughout the culinary world, Simon is revered.
He is the chef and owner of L'Enclume, the 2 Michelin star restaurant in Cumbria that famously starred in Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon's film, The Trip and has won Best Restaurant OFM Awards and The Good Food Guide's Best Restaurant for the past 4 years.
He was a winner on BBC2s Great British Menu and a mentor on MasterChef.
There is also Rogan & Company, Aulis a research kitchen and 2 more restaurants coming up in London.
Renowned for the clarity of ethos he brings to his different restaurants, as well as a brilliant reputation for artistry, innovation and excellence, his talent and vision shine through. Many cookbooks have been published by chefs.
But Simon is uniquely placed to write a definitive cookbook that changes the tenor of cookery publishing.
Here is a book that perfectly communicates his philosophy of taking farmed and foraged seasonal ingredients to create unforgettable dishes. For years, inventive cookery was all about exotic ingredients and far-flung cuisines.
But Simon Rogan has led the way in showing that innovative cookery is at its best when using local ingredients with imagination and passion.
His food is primal. And it's natural. But it's not rough or messy. It's beautifully refined and has transformed howwe view locally-sourced cuisine - the Farm to Plate ethos. Simon's book showcases recipes that use beautiful ingredients, but ones that are accessible to people everywhere.
Combined with vibrant recipe pictures alongside photography capturing the life and landscapes of his farm in Cumbria, where his two Michelin star restaurant L'Enclume is based.
Breaking the boundaries of how people use their ingredients and cook their food, this will become the cookery book of the year.
