Starters is a reflection of today's approach to eating. Whether at home or in a restaurant, we are increasingly inclined to eat a selection of starters or dine 'mezze' style over several light dishes, rather than consume the traditional three-course meal. This is a very special collection of adaptable, modern dishes presented in a clear and accessible way. The recipes in the book are conveniently arranged according to the occasion: nibbles and snacks; quick and easy recipes for casual meals; simple and satisfying dishes for family and friends; food for groups to accommodate larger gatherings; and posh food for entertaining to impress. The food is versatile and flexible, so dishes can be easily upsized to become lunches and suppers, or downsized to make visually stunning canapes or party food.
In 1999 Shane Osborn took over as the head chef of London's Pied a Terre, having previously worked as sous chef to Tom Aikens. A year later, aged just 29, he became the very first Australian to attain Michelin status. Born and brought up in Perth, Australia, Shane has worked in Europe for the past 10 years, including stints in France and Sweden, before moving to take a position with Gordon Ramsay and Marcus Wareing at the new L'Oranger, where he helped to gain a Michelin star. He later became junior sous chef at The Square, before joining Pied a Terre. Shane Osborn is a unique talent and his sensational food has taken Pied a Terre from strength to strength. In January 2003 the restaurant was awarded a second Michelin star. This is Shane's first cookbook, revealing the secrets of his success.
