Stephanie Alexander has been a pioneer in championing the quality and diversity of local food and producers. Her enthusiasm is all-pervading and infectious and, through her writing and teaching, she has influenced the food habits of a generation. In Stephanie's Menus for Food Lovers she writes about her life and about what went on behind the scenes at her renowned restaurant, Stephanies. Twenty of her favourite menus are presented in her now-distinctive style, mingling anecdotes with precise and clear instruction. For this new edition she has added illuminating comments and reflections throughout the text, and Simon Griffiths has contributed stunning photographs.
