“We are honoured to be able to work with some the Britain’s Greatest Chefs,” comments founder and publisher James Day. “It is therefore fitting that our books reflect their passion for perfection at every touch point and support British suppliers, by printing them in the UK. Signature Chefs are a celebration of the Greatest Chefs, we also profile key venues in the region and highlight local heroes in the form of the producers who supply these venues."

Over 50 recipes are featured, each with quality photography, as well as food and drink features from key chefs and British producers. Chef interviews feature throughout, with unique insights into the passions and motivations of some of the Greatest British Chefs.
