We have been sent this amazing and heavy cookbook whereby 365 of the well renowned chefs in the UK have donated their favourite recipe for charity. Brought together by the Editor-in-Chief, David Johnstone, the 754 page hard back book contains 365 amazing main course recipes consisting of vegetarian, shellfish, meat, fish, poultry and game dishes for you to recreate at home with step-by-step instructions.
Each chef starts of the page with a little introduction by mentioning which charity they support and why. Some of the recipes featured in the book are the chef’s signature dish which is currently being served at their restaurant, hence the recipes featured are very special, all for a good cause!
We find that the recipe book is a must have ‘bible’ if you are an avid cook and prefer to cook your food at home instead of heading out to restaurants. The Signature Dish Recipe Book can be purchased via the ChariTable Bookings website.

What we thought about the Signature Dish Recipe Book
There are some fabulous recipes in there covering vegetarian, shellfish, meat, fish, poultry and game dishes. Looking through the pages, there are some recipes which may seem intimidating to try out, but don’t be afraid, there are lots of guide and the instructions are clear. We tried making a few of the simple dishes such as mango curry, pork and beef ragu sauce and were pleased with the results. We are definitely going to keep trying to recreate the other dishes as well. The photos in the recipe book are amazing to look at and literally made our mouth water! A must have new addition to add to your recipe book collection.
To top it all, it is an effortless way to raise money for a good cause when you purchase the book or eat out using the ChariTable Bookings website. Great way to learn about small charities and to raise unrestricted funds without incurring any costs. Do join the bandwagon and give a little!!
