'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 TimesLarder 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 so too Robin Gill has revolutionised the way British food is cooked and enjoyed, with his philosophy of using classic techniques to produce bold new recipes.

Absolute freshness and seasonality is at the heart of his cooking. Game, when is in season, is a hero of his menus, and in spring the fruits of his city kitchen gardens attached to each of his restaurants provide produce for the tables, jars and bottles that adorn each of his destinations. Curing, fermenting and pickling are very much to the fore linked 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

If Jamie Oliver is your go-to cookbook author, Gill might be perfect for those days you fancy something a bit edgier. - Corinna Hardgrave, The Sunday Times Ireland

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

Gill's approach maximises flavour while interfering with the ingredients as little as possible to let the quality speak for itself. If chefs aren't inspired by what can be found in the larder (which is very unlikely), they can take something from the presentation of these dishes - all ingredients shining proudly in their natural state. - Katie Pathiaki, The Caterer

Larder offers recipes from every corner of the kitchen [and] is a detailed encyclopaedia for envious fellow chefs and avid home cooks alike. - Code Quarterly

Should I buy it? If you want to understand contemporary British restaurant cooking, this is an essential purchase. - Chef Magazine

This is an interesting and unusual book… Many of the recipes are super simple, fun to make and will transform your food as well as get you addicted to stacking your larder shelves. - Irish Examiner

Chef Robin Gill is one to watch. - County Homes and Interiors
