Ever wondered where Caesar Salad comes from? Who was Benedict and what's he got to do with combining poached eggs with ham and hollandaise sauce? In this fascinating journey into culinary history James Winter provides the answers to these questions and explores the origins of classic dishes from around the world. Who came up with them? When and what inspired them to combine certain ingredients? And why have they endured to become classics that we turn to again and again? With a total of 50 recipes including Battenberg Cake, Peach Melba, Sole Veronique, Chicken Kiev and Bloody Mary, James covers mains, desserts and even drinks. Including the quintessential version of each recipe plus hints and tips from top chefs this book will inform and inspire in equal measure.
