At Benares the superior service and setting are the height of luxury, but it is the sublime food that truly sets the restaurant apart. Atul Kochhar's unique, world-class cuisine is showcased in this beautiful book of recipes from his Michelin-starred kitchen. 80 signature dishes reflect the excellent food ethos that Atul has created using the best of British produce with his modern Indian style. Every aromatic desire is explored on a journey to the heart of Benares, revealing exotic fusions and dazzling flavours. Across starters, mains, desserts, sides and accompaniments, each heavenly taste is a tribute to this master's work. This is not the same Atul as seen on TV – it's the Atul who has conquered the Michelin world with his expert gastronomy.

Benares is the epicurean artefact the fine-dining room deserves. This is a benchmark work: a cookbook to treasure and use to conjure the masterly Michelin spirit in your home. With excellent photography by Mike Cooper.
