The Book of St John is too witty to be a manifesto, but it is a
sturdy invocation of the need for comfort, generosity and ritual at
the table. And it is a gurglingly delightful compendium of - quite
simply - delicious ideas and stories -- Nigella Lawson
Legendary and lovely. Long May it last -- Simon Hopkinson
Fergus and Trevor are generous, infectious and wonderful human beings, matched only by the restaurants they run. Their influence on the British food scene in the last twenty years cannot be rivalled by many others and this book is a true celebration of their legacy -- Angela Hartnett
Fergus and Trevor know what's good - everything! We should all follow their example and learn to enjoy what we can, while we can. I wouldn't be who I am today without them -- David Chang
There was British food, and then there was St. JOHN. This wonderful book celebrates twenty-five years of the radical, brave and delicious world that is St. JOHN. Fergus has written that he is more cosmic than earth bound. For me, he is both: a tree with roots that are strong, with branches that reach up to the stars -- Ruth Rogers
