For February's supper club, Bureau Chefs Sean and Matt are adapting dishes from Simon Hopkinson and Lindsey Barehams' book The Prawn Cocktail Years.

 "In every kitchen Matt and I have ever worked in you would spot a Simon Hopkinson & Lindsey Bareham Book, lurking about, used as reference or recipes. They are written so well you could produce a restaurant based on their books" - Sean, head chef at Bureau.   


Prawn Cocktail, Steak Garni and Black Forest Gateau has been the favourite British meal out as long as one can remember. It's not surprising. It's delicious. The only trouble is, as with any popular food, familiarity breeds contempt. Take that other ubiquitous Saturday-nighter, the Indian meal. Think of countless times you’ve been served up greasy bhajis, dried-out tandoori and watery dhal, whereas you can probably count on one hand the occasions when the bhajis have been beautiful, the tandoori terrific and the dahl delectable. Its simply a question of good cooking and bad cooking. So it seems a shame that the Great British Meal Out has been singled out for such enduring ridicule, what on earth is wrong with a grilled Dover sole?

Simon Hopkinson, 1997
