One: A Cook and Her Cupboard
Florence Knight is head chef at Soho's coolest restaurant, Polpetto. Using fresh, seasonal ingredients, Florence cooks imaginative, Italian-inspired food that everyone loves to eat. Now, for her first cook book, she has turned her attention to the kitchen store-cupboard, challenging herself to create stunning, simple dishes from her favourite everyday ingredients. 'Cooking is really about peeling things back to their most basic. There's one core ingredient behind every great dish and it's normally something really simple like salt, chocolate, or olive oil. Building a dish from that point of view is what I'm about. It's what inspires me to create new and exciting food...' Each recipe in One will inspire you to think again about the everyday essentials in your pantry, and to learn the chef's art of simple cooking.
