"...not that I intend to die, but when I do, I don't want to go to heaven, I want to go to Claridge's" Spencer Tracy"I love to check myself into Claridge's now and then for a few nights - just to spoil myself" Jade Jagger"When I pass through the revolving doors into the glamorous lobby of Claridge's in London, I always feel a thrill. You enter a world of sophistication and wonderful service... Claridge's is my ultimate treat." Lulu GuinnessAn art deco jewel set in the heart of London's Mayfair, Claridge's - one of the world's best luxury hotels - has long been known for inspiring menus and exceptional dining from breakfasts and brunches, through lunch and afternoon tea, and on to drinks, dinner and the dessert cart. Claridge's: The Cookbook celebrates that heritage in style, with a collection of over 100 of the best-loved dishes and drinks from The Foyer, The ReadingRoom, the Bar and The Fumoir. With interludes ranging from the return of the "drunch" to the magic of Christmas, the extraordinary experience of dining at Claridge's is brought to life in book form.Delve into delectable dishes and drinks for every time of day: start with Bircher muesli or the Arnold Bennett omelette. Indulge in a little something from the Donut trolley. Try the Lobster, langoustine & crab cocktail or the Smoked duck salad. Treat yourself to a Cheddar Eccles cake or a Raspberry marshmallow. Sip a Champagne cobbler while you nibble a Gougere. Savor the prized Claridge's chicken pie or a slice of Venison Wellington, with some Truffled macaroni gratin or Pommes château. Finish with a Roasted stone fruit clafoutis or a tiny piece of Nougat. Share the essence of Claridge's with family and friends, in the comfort of your own home - and enjoy!
