Florence Knight is an extraordinarly talented chef living and working in the heart of London's Soho. 'Less is more' typifies Florence's style. She cooks with delicacy and almost poetic simplicity but with a meticulous attention to dteail that manifests itself in dishes of rare and delightful flavours. In this, her first cookbook, Florence turns her attention to the kitchen cupboard to create imaginative, honest food from her favourite ingredients: olive oil, flour, mustard, vinegar, salt, ketchup, nuts, eggs, honey and chocolate. Each recipe in One will inspire you to think again about the everyday essentials in your pantry, and to learn the chef's art of simple cooking.
Florence Knight is head chef at Polpetto in Soho. She studied at London College of Fashion before deciding to follow her passion for food, studying at Leiths School of Food and Wine. She then went on to work with French master baker Richard Bertinet, as a pastry chef at the Diamond Club, where the kitchen was led by Raymond Blanc, and in 2010 joined Polpetto, the small Venetian-inspired restaurant owned by Russell Norman.
