About the book


Hawsmoor at Home should be covered in fingerprints and splashes of food, as it's a great hands-on book to use every day.' HESTON BLUMENTHAL

'When we started out we had a simple plan - to open the best steak restaurant in London. We travelled the world searching for the perfect steak, but discovered that beef from traditional breeds, reared the old-fashioned way right here in Britain, and cooked simply over real charcoal, packed more flavour than anything we tried on our travels.'

The critics have hailed Hawksmoor as one of the great restaurant openings of recent years. Their credo is simple: the best ingredients - dictionary-thick steaks from Longhorn cattle traditionally reared in North Yorkshire by multi-award-winners The Ginger Pig, dry-aged for at least thirty-five days, simply cooked on a real charcoal grill. Their cocktails, wines and desserts too have been applauded to the echo.

Hawksmoor at Home is a practical cookbook which shows you how to buy and cook great steak and seafood and indeed much else (including how to cook the both the 'best burger in Britain' and the 'best roast beef in Britain'); how to mix terrific cocktails and choose wine to accompany your meal. Above all Hawksmoor at Home entertains and informs in the inimitable 'Hawksmoor' way.

What the critics say

I love Hawksmoor. Whenever I feel the need for fabulous meat it's the place I go
- Angela Hartnett

Every now and then a cookbook comes out that makes you think: 'I can't wait to get my hands on that.' The Hawksmoor cookbook is just such a one: beautifully designed and full of recipes ... An absolute must-have for anyone who loves a brilliant burger or a perfect rack of ribs
- City AM

The only thing harder to find than a great piece of meat is a great book on meat. Hawksmoor at Home is most definitely the latter, best enjoyed with a bottle - several, actually - of good red wine
- Mark Schatzker, author of Steak

Ooh it's mouthwatering
- Observer

Drool worthy...not only is the writing so engaging you'll find the book hard to put down, you'll want to dive into Dan Lepard's photographs and take a bite into / take a sip of the goodies on show
- The Cocktail Lovers

This sexy cook book is stunningly designed, with whimsical illustrations and historical texts all interspersed with good enough to eat photos ... Classy cocktails, big brekkies and tasty bits on the side complete this beauty of a book
- Fork

This weighty tome is a brilliant resource filled not only with recipes from the Hawksmoor kitchen but also cocktail recipes from the acclaimed bar. With vintage illustrations, diagrams, references and excellent food photography from Dan Lepard to add colour, it's a very attractive book indeed. The tone is authoritative but never stern; expect dry wit mixed with a relaxed colloquialism
- Time Out, 4 stars, Book of the Week

Satisfyingly meaty cookbook by the sacred cow specialists
- GQ

If you can't book a table at London's most fashionable steakhouse, get the new book, Hawksmoor At Home, and your girlfriends will give you Michelin stars
- Grazia

If you like Hawksmoor, you will like this book. It retains the heart of the restaurant, something which sometimes fails to survive the transition to printed page. It is one of my favourite book releases of this year
