Featuring interviews with world-renowned chefs Heston Blumenthal (The Fat Duck), Massimo Bottura (Osteria Francescana), René Redzepi (Noma), Michel Roux Jr (Le Gavroche), April Bloomfield (The Spotted Pig), Daniel Boulud (Bar Boulud), Ruth Rogers (The River Café) and many more. In this book they reveal how they decide what food to serve and what inspires them to write their menus. In this much-anticipated book, Nicholas Lander, restaurant critic and author of The Art of the Restaurateur, rejoices in the history, design and evolution of the world’s favourite piece of paper: the menu. On the Menu presents over 100 stunning, full-colour reproductions of menus – some at the cutting edge of contemporary culinary innovation, and others that are relics from another time: the last menu from The French House Dining Room before Fergus Henderson departed for St John; and the final menu from Ferran Adrià’s three Michelin-starred elBulli in Spain. From the classic to the innovative: a Christmas menu served during the siege of Paris in 1870, which featured rats and zoo animals; the wittily illustrated menu at Quo Vadis in London, which gave the restaurant a new lease of life; and many, many more. Between the reproductions, Lander examines the principles of menu design and layout; the evolution of wine and cocktail lists; the menu as a record of the past; and he even takes us behind the scenes at Mario Batali’s Babbo, to sit in as the staff are briefed on the evening’s menu. These are truly pages to drool over.

A History Of The World In Five Menus

This book investigates five menus, from England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. These dishes may seem truly national, or even regional, but the reality is very different. Few of the ingredients used originated in Europe, and many have travelled half way around the world. Tracing the history of the dishes opens up the whole of human history. We can see the importance of food in the ancient migrations and struggles to survive of our earliest ancestors, in the development of farming, trade and technology, and in the European exploration and colonisation of the world. This is truly delicious history, where the food we love takes centre stage and kings and politicians become supporting actors.

Brad first took note of Mrs. Justine Henderson, the woman, when he was sixteen years old. He was shocked at the actions that went on in his BVD and, counseled himself. "She is old enough to be your mother for God's sake." Yet he continued to look at her and wondered, just what it would be like to roll with her in bed. He had known her all his life. Her two children were his best friends. His parents were very close to her also. She was his awakening. Away at university he had his share of girls but his thoughts still centered on, Justine how she was and what she was doing. Years later when they met again, he was even more fascinated by her. To him she had not aged but remained the same for the last nine years. Shaking hands with her, the shock that went through him when their hands met surprised him. He invited her to lunch and, told her of his true feelings for her. While making his feelings known to her he held her hands, fearing that she would have thought him impertinent and slapped his face.
