Sally Clarke: 30 Ingredients

Hardcover: 288 pages, 92 colour reproductions. Published 2015

In her latest book, written to celebrate 30 years of Clarke’s restaurant, Sally has selected her favourite 30 ingredients to create vibrant but uncomplicated dishes.

I love Sally’s unerring, instinctual ability to make each ingredient shine – she is a purist, and has a very unique aesthetic. This book is a beautiful meditation on these thirty fruits and vegetables, showing Sally’s deep understanding of seasonality, ripeness, and the farmers who take care of the land.
– Alice Waters
Sally Clarke is a legend and has changed the way we think about food with her restaurant, bakery and shop (my partner Rose used to stop there on her way home from the River Café). 30 Ingredients is beautifully designed, generous, interesting and warm – all you would expect from a legend.
– Ruth Rogers
Sally Clarke has always adored and revered her best beloved ingredients and, here, she compels them to sing out loud.
