About the Book

Discover the dining sensation that has taken London by storm: a fabulous full-color cookbook filled with dozens of delectable recipes for classic British dishes with a twist, from "Britain’s most fashionable foodies" (The Times)—the creators of London’s most popular pop-up restaurant, Check On.

Liverpool chef Terry Edwards and his musician best friend, George Craig, believe that the best times in life are spent around the table enjoying a good meal. Building on their experience modernizing favorite childhood staples into satisfying, mouthwatering dishes for friends and family, the pair channeled their love of food, drinks, and music into a unique London dining experience—an eclectic pop-up restaurant they named Check On. As word of their culinary creation spread, Check On’s fabulous food and amazing ambiance won raves from even the most discriminating cosmopolitan palates and revolutionized the London food scene.

Now, with their debut cookbook, everyone can replicate the Check On experience at home. In Cooking for Friends, Terry and George tell their story and share their delicious fare: 100 original recipes inspired by British ingredients and culture that reflect their playful aesthetic. Terry and George bring joy to the table with favorites such as Lancashire Hotpot, Toad-in-the-Hole, Bakewell Tart, Spineless Chicken and Truffled Chips, and A Pudding of Eggs and Soldiers (eggshells filled with crème brulee and mango jelly, accompanied by shortbread soldiers for dipping). Here, too, are signature dishes: George's Marvelous Medicine, Shell Fish & Chips, and Yorkshire Rhubarb Martini. The recipes include detailed, step-by-step instructions and are accompanied by lush and inviting photographs. Terry and George also provide mood-setting playlists to enhance the pleasure of every meal.

This is food made for sharing and enjoying at home. With Cooking for Friends, good times are guaranteed.
