Hospitality Action has announced that it will be launching a cookbook of lockdown recipes from 54 of the UK’s most celebrated chefs.

Launching on 18 March to mark the one year anniversary of the UK’s first national lockdown, the cookbook is a compilation of the dishes that Britain’s very best chefs prepared at home during lockdown, when there were fewer ingredients and long supermarket queues.

Published by Jon Croft Editions, chefs who have contributed include to the cookbook include Jason Atherton, Gordon Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal, Lisa Goodwin-Allen and Clare Smyth, among many others.

The simple, accessible and nutritious collection of recipes will give 100% of all royalties to Hospitality Action.

Jason Atherton, Chef-Patron and Principal Patron, Hospitality Action comments: “When lockdown began in March 2020, we all felt a deep sense of loss, but this was tempered by the joy of spending precious time at home with our families.”

He adds: “Behind our closed doors, we all did what we do best: we cooked. And cooked. So, when Hospitality Action asked us to contribute to Chefs at Home, we had lists of recipes as long as your arm to offer up. All the dishes in this book were conceived and cooked with love: think butties, Monster Munch and mash, not foams, soils and emulsions.”

Hospitality Action was established in 1837 has since offered assistance to all those who work, or have worked within hospitality in the UK.
