OFM’s classic cookbook: Simon Hopkinson’s Roast Chicken and Other Stories

Foodies know it as the winner of the Glenfiddich award for best food book, and publishers know it as the book that trumped Harry Potter on Amazon. The British magazine Waitrose Food Illustrated named it the most useful cookbook ever, but here I must disagree. Simon Hopkinson was the founding chef at the Bibendum restaurant in London and a former columnist for The Independent. He has divided his book into 40 short chapters, each exploring one of his favorite foods, and organized it alphabetically, from anchovies to veal. He almost anthropomorphizes his ingredients, bringing them to life with stories both tragic and comic.

The recipes are however, mostly entirely satisfying. And very enjoyable it was too. This recipe is made with dried kidney beans, something I have never bothered with before. I cook chilli regularly but always use tinned kidney beans. All the soaking, and washing and cooking that dried beans demand always seems like a bit of a faff. I have to say though, I was seduced by the packet dried kidney beans I bought for this recipe.

  1. I'm not sure if it's the name, combining two of my favourite passions or the lovely tone of the writing, which is all about celebrating wonderful chefs and great food, but this is definitely a book I can pick up over and over again and always find a small gem of a recipe that I had maybe forgotten.
