The Good Cook Summary


The Good Cook by Allegra Mcevedy

Allegra McEvedy is the Head Chef at the Good Cook in Notting Hill's Tabernacle. In this book, she introduces her particular brand of cooking - deconstructing modern classics with verve and humour. Drawing on experiences that range from cooking for presidents as Head Sous Chef in Robert de Niro's New York restaurant, learning the hard way in the River Cafe, exploring her Irish heritage and teaching West London school kids that McDonalds is not the only option, Allegra's book is at once a collection of internationally-embracing recipes, an eulogy to local and organic food and an insight into a warm and endearing personality.

A caterer with a conscience - Independent

A chef on the brink of stardum - she's being tipped as the next Jamie Oliver. She has achieved a ridiculous amount in her 28 years. - Guardian

Allegra McEvedy's refreshingly democratic approach to food made her lively restaurant in a West London community arts centre one of the capital's culinary hubs - her new book demonstrates exactly why her establishment is called the Good Cook. - You Magazine

Allegra is the hot-as-smoking-oil new chef in town - The Good Cook is that rare treat, a funny book about food. - Telegraph

Refreshing, modern, exuberant, honest, unpretentious, matey but not burdened with Jamie Oliver pukka-speak. - Yorkshire Evening Press

This is a serious recipe book, for serious cooks and chefs. The recipes are deeply appealing and often at the cutting edge of contemporary cooking. - Time Out
