Books for Cooks

This shop for cookery book fanatics was once managed by Clarissa Dickson-Wright. The mouth-watering smells that spring from this traditional place are thanks to the kitchen/coffee shop at the back where staff cook treats from the cookery books on sale. The formula is simple: one main course on the daily changing menu, served with water or wine. They also do cookery workshops upstairs. When looking for a cook book, the shop has its own recipe books on offer alongside limitless other recipe books covering every type of cuisine. From titles on nutrition, to culinary history to the biographies of celebrated chefs, this place is all about food.
