    • Claridge's: The Cookbook

      For the first time in Claridge’s history the extraordinary experience of dining at our hotel has been brought to life in book form, with Claridge’s: The Cookbook.

      Claridge's: The Cookbook

      Claridge’s: The Cookbook, co-authored by our executive chef Martyn Nail and food writer Meredith Erickson, is a carefully-chosen collection of some of our best-loved dishes and drinks from the Foyer & Reading Room, Claridge’s Bar and The Fumoir. Savour the prized recipes of our acclaimed chicken pie, the legendary lobster risotto, The Flapper for cocktail hour and even the secret techniques that make our scrambled egg so light and fluffy. With chapters covering everything from ‘Elevenses’ and ‘The Art of Carving’ to ‘The Magic of Christmas’, the epicurean spirit of Claridge’s is brought to you with the turn of each page.

      Claridge's The Cookbook

      Claridge’s: The Cookbook is published by Mitchell Beazley (part of Octopus Publishing Group).

    • About Martyn Nail

      Claridge's Executive Chef Martyn Nail      First inspired to cook by his grandmother, Martyn Nail was baking his own cakes by the age of eight. He started at Claridge's in 1988 as third commis chef and rose through the ranks to become our highly respected executive chef in 2004. Along the way he was awarded industry tributes from The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts to the Hotel Cateys. Under Martyn's direction, Claridge's has become one of London’s most happening culinary destinations, for lunch, dinner, prestigious events and gastronomic pop-ups such as 2012's A Taste of Noma. Martyn comments, “I am thrilled to bring my 30 years’ experience of Claridge’s to life in book form. We’ve carefully selected recipes from my tenure and beyond, and I hope readers – those who’ve stayed and those who haven’t – will love a peek into the Claridge’s kitchen.”
