Recipe books are ten-a-penny, but not many leave us as watered-of-mouth as How to Eat In by Adam Byatt, chef patron of Clapham’s rather fabulous Trinity restaurant. It’s a tome of serious beauty – the full-page pictures of boiled goose eggs with asparagus soldiers and a sensational fish pie topped with cockles are enough to send one weak at the knees – and it’s full of recipes we’re expecting to transform our dinner parties this summer. Hunt it down, or just head to Trinity for a taste of the real thing. Trinity Restaurant, 4 The Polygon, SW4 0JG. www.trinityrestaurant.co.uk.
