Breakfast at the Wolseley

Recipes from London's Favorite Restaurant
A non fiction book by

"Breakfast is everything. The beginning, the first thing. It is the mouthful that is the commitment to the new day." Thus begins A.A. Gill's irresistible book celebrating this most personal and universal of meals.

Whether sweet or savory, hot or cold, lavish or spartan, breakfast can be tailor-made to suit one's particular taste, but it indisputably starts the day the world over.

Using breakfast at The Wolseley, London's grand cafe in the European tradition, as his starting point, Gill shares fascinating stories of the service and traditions of the restaurant breakfast, muses about the pleasures of Viennese pastries and the origins of the English crumpet, and reveals the secrets to boiling the perfect egg and making the perfect cup of coffee and tea.

With more than 30 superb recipes for mouth-watering dishes ranging from Waffles with Carmelized Banana to Crispy Bacon & Egg Roll; Double Chocolate Brioche to Choux de Fromage; and Grilled Kippers with Mustard Butter to, of course, the English Breakfast itself, this delicious gem of a book, replete with gorgeous photographs, is the perfect ode to everything that makes breakfast so wonderful.
