Atul Kochhar`s new book Benares reveals exotic fusions and dazzling flavours.

Atul Kochhar’s sublime food can usually be enjoyed at his restaurant Benares in Mayfair. The modern Indian restaurant opened its doors in 2003 and has been a tremendous success ever since. A particular highlight followed in 2007, when Benares achieved a Michelin star.

If you were hoping for an option to turn your own kitchen into a second Benares, Atul’s new book should bring you closer to that dream. In eighty signature dishes, Atul presents his excellent food ethos. This ethos includes respecting the seasons, nurturing the ingredients through understanding and only use the most suitable techniques.

Born and brought up in India, Atul mixes classic Indian food with influences from across the globe. Migrating to the UK gave him this creative freedom, which helped him shape the menu he proudly cooks today. From Punjabi lamb shanks to cauliflower and mangetout stir-fry to spiced tea soufflés; across starters, mains, desserts, sides and accompaniments – each heavenly taste is a tribute to this master’s work.

With it’s debut launch on Thursday 4th June, it’s worth getting your hands on a copy as soon as possible. With incredible images from Mike Cooper, Benares is an epicurean treasure and a cookbookthat every gourmand needs in their kitchen.
