Gordon Ramsay, Tom Kerridge, James Cochran and Angela Hartnett are among 54 chefs who have contributed to a cookbook in aid of industry charity Hospitality Action.
Chefs at Home, published by Jon Croft Editions and distributed by Bloomsbury Publishing, is a compilation of the dishes these chefs prepared at home with their own families when there were limited ingredients on the shelves and queues at supermarkets. Contributors also include Nokx Majozi, Elizabeth Haigh and Jamie Oliver.
The cookbook will be published on 18 March, marking the one-year anniversary of the first national Covid-19 lockdown, with all royalties going to Hospitality Action.
Jason Atherton, chef-patron and principal patron of Hospitality Action, who has also contributed to the collection, said: "When lockdown began in March 2020, we all felt a deep sense of loss, but this was tempered by the joy of spending precious time at home with our families. Behind our closed doors, we all did what we do best: we cooked. And cooked. So, when Hospitality Action asked us to contribute to Chefs at Home, we had lists of recipes as long as your arm to offer up. All the dishes in this book were conceived and cooked with love: think butties, Monster Munch and mash, not foams, soils and emulsions."
