2012 has been a busy year for Milsom Hotels, culminating in the launch of Recreate, a cookery book that celebrates 60 years at Le Talbooth restaurant in Essex and the dishes that have shaped the business.

Published by highly acclaimed food and drink publisher, Jon Croft Editorial, the book is a selection of over 100 classic recipes from the Milsom restaurants to enjoy at home. Head Chefs from across all the restaurants including Le Talbooth and the seafood restaurant The Harbourside at The Pier have contributed their favourite recipes, tailored to suit the demands of the home cook.

The book features a collection of dishes with ‘the kind of food you really want to eat’, be it for a casual supper with friends or an out-to-impress dinner party. This is food that will impress, soothe, comfort, nourish and dazzle – just as they do at the group’s restaurants in Dedham, Harwich or Kesgarve Hall restaurants in Suffolk.

All the recipes have been tried and tested to ensure best results. Each one comes with an introduction and a note or two from the chef on how to achieve a professional finish. Dishes include the ever popular Duck Tacos from milsoms in Dedham, a Beetroot, Smoked Eel and Horseradish Risotto from milsoms Kesgrave Hall to a stunning soufflé from Le Talbooth’.

The Milsom Restaurants Cookbook by Stas Anastasiades with Laura James and the Chefs from the Milsom Restaurants (RRP £25) is now available to buy online and at any Milsom Hotel or Restaurant. To find out more, visit www.milsomhotels.com/giftvouchers/default.aspx
