A coffee table book to savour
How best to celebrate 50 years at the very top of the hospitality industry? Why, with a gorgeous coffee table publication from RMC Books, of course.
‘Chewton Glen: An English Original’ is a fitting tribute to a hotel with half a century of success under its belt. Since its conversion from country house to hotel in 1966, Chewton Glen has pioneered a template which has been much imitated but rarely bettered: impeccable service in a relaxing and luxurious setting.
Written by RMC’s own Adam Kay and beautifully illustrated by award-winning photographer Jodi Hinds and pubished in 2015, this 348-page hardcover book tells the Chewton Glen story in style. Famous friends and former employees share their treasured memories of this New Forest landmark, including celebrity chefs Raymond Blanc, Jean-Christophe Novelli and James Martin, who also contributes the book’s foreword.
In recognition of Chewton Glen’s enviable culinary heritage, the book also features 50 mouth-watering recipes from executive chef Luke Matthews – as stunning to look at on the page as they are to eat and enjoy at home.
All in all, it’s a worthy celebration of Chewton Glen – a truly special hotel, and a true English original.
‘Chewton Glen: An English Original’ (ISBN: 978-1907998201) is available from Amazon and directly from Chewton Glen (www.chewtonglen.com) priced at £25.
