From all appearances, The Sportsman, in Whitstable, Kent, is a standard English seaside pub.

Following years of hard work, Stephen Harris has transformed this bucolic locale into an internationally acclaimed restaurant serving innovative regional cuisine that has earned it the top spot in Britain - and a cult following around the world.

The simple, stylish recipes in Harris's debut cookbook epitomize all that's great about British cooking, and showcase his pared-back style, while his personal writings and memorabilia provide rare insight into an extraordinary life.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Anyone who is interested in British cooking will be waiting for this...Stephen Harris is the British chef all other British chefs (and many from Belgium, France, Scandinavia and the Netherlands) admire. He is also of interest to home cooks because he is entirely self-taught and only uses techniques because they really make a difference to flavour (not just to show off and not to be 'on trend')…. A lot of people have been waiting a long time for this. It's going on my bedside table before I move it into the kitchen." - Diana Henry, The Telegraph

"No faffing, no poncery, no energy and expense wasted on marble loos, groveling maitre d's or arrogant sommeliers; in short, never mind the bollocks. The Sportsman is all about the food - the sensationally good food." - Guardian

"Stephen Harris is one of the greatest British chefs cooking today. A man who wholeheartedly embraces his surroundings, environment, seasons, and producers ... This is a snapshot and a window into his researched, moving, and personal connection to food." - Tom Kerridge

"The Sportsman's interior is the British pub of the imagination: knotty woods everywhere, a fireplace built of mismatched bricks, warrens of rooms, and a prevailing sense of welcome... and it is a meal to relish." - Eater
