Marcus at Home
Marcus Wareing is a brilliant chef. His restaurant group Marcus Wareing Restaurants includes three critically-acclaimed restaurants – the two Michelin-starred Marcus at The Berkeley, as well as The Gilbert Scott and Tredwell’s. He is also judge of MasterChef: The Professionals, combining authority with inspiration for the contestants and viewers alike. But there’s another side to Marcus – away from the professional kitchens – when he’s at home, cooking the food he loves to share with his family and friends. In Marcus at Home, he shows you how you can cook these recipes, too.
Reviews of Marcus’ restaurants:
Grace Dent – On Marcus: ‘The food at Marcus was incredible. I inhaled the courses in swift succession, making low mewls of pleasure and ignoring my guest.’
Grace Dent – On Tredwell’s: ‘There was literally nothing on the menu at Tredwell’s I didn’t gaze at longingly and want then and there. This is a Marcus Wareing experience, but with genuinely relaxed just-fussed-with-enough fare on offer. It’s high-end comfort-food heaven.’
Tracey Macleod – ‘The dishes were prepared with the finesse you’d expect from a team with its roots in fine dining. “This is what I dream of when I cook,” breathed Emma as she cut into her baked onion, immaculately stuffed with a breadcrumby rubble. Mushrooms on sippets were elevated from a breakfast dish by lozenges of bone marrow. Bacon olives – minced pork wrapped in bacon, served with an endive and shallot salad – sent Richard into a reverie. “It’s comfort food,” he sighed happily. “All the tastes of home and youth…”’
Giles Coren – ‘It was a dazzling, lavish, exciting meal, which I wouldn’t have minded spreading out over three evenings.’
