About the book
Sat Bains offers an unprecedented view into his past, recipes and philosophies on food in his multi-award-winning cookbook.
Too Many Chiefs Only One Indian is Sat’s autobiographical cookbook, featuring the tasting menus of Restaurant Sat Bains, with 68 in-depth recipes, demonstrating how research, development and creativity play a vital role in Sat’s food pairings and flavour combinations. The recipes are presented in seven courses mirroring the tasting menu at the restaurant, but with the addition of Sat’s famous Ham/Egg/Peas which took him through to the final of the Great British Menu. The seven courses are: Introduction, Savouries, Main Course, Crossover, Chocolate, Cheese, and To Finish.
The book details the theories, thought process and evolution that shape Sat’s food, and offers an exclusive opportunity to order dishes featured within the book when dining at Restaurant Sat Bains, even when they’re not on the restaurant’s current menu.
With a foreword by Heston Blumenthal and contributions from 35 of the world’s greatest chefs, and photography by John Arandhara Blackwell.
