Stephen Bull wanted to escape from the world of advertising, but unlike his boss, Peter Mayle, who headed to Provence, Bull traveled to Wales with the idea of opening up a restaurant, having learned something of the trade from Peter Langan of Langan's Brasserie fame. The experiment was successful and Bull opened a chain of restaurants around London, his style becoming known for being contemporary, but not "faddish". This book tells the story of Bull's coming of age in the kitchen and his adventures in the trendy, but grueling, restaurant trade. It is also a collection of his favorite recipes - designed for the cook who enjoys the "buzz" of cooking, and is looking for simple, interesting, no-fuss dishes.
