Review: Too Many Chiefs Only One Indian by Sat Bains

Too Many Chiefs Only One Indian is the eagerly anticipated debut cookbook from Sat Bains!

Revealing the first insight into the food and philosophies of the 2 Michelin star chef, with a foreword by Heston Blumenthal and featuring contributions from 36 of the world’s best chefs – this linen-covered limited edition of Michelin star chef Sat Bains debut cookbook, Too Many Chiefs Only One Indian, is packaged in a stunning slipcase and mailing box.

Weighing in at almost 4kg, this is a stunning book. At one level, it’s a beautiful coffee table cookbook appealing to anybody with a passion for food. But for the serious chef this is definite must have in a professional library.

Too Many Chiefs Only One Indian follows the celebrated tasting menu format of Restaurant Sat Bains. It contains 68 incredible recipes that will inspire a generation of chefs. Each recipe has detailed instructions and photographs. A clever graphic design element included with each recipe clearly and easily identifies the seasonal aspects, the taste profile and the flavour components of each dish.

Featuring a fascinating behind the scenes account of a chef at the cutting edge of modern cuisine, Too Many Chiefs Only One Indian reveals the theories, thought process and evolution that shape Sat’s food.  The book also shows how gastronomic research, development and creativity play a vital role in the unique food pairings and flavour combinations at the 2 Michelin star restaurant, Restaurant Sat Bains .

Sat Bains won a Roux Scholarship in 1999, and is the holder of numerous awards. Sat is also highly regarded by his peers

One of the most memorable meals I’ve ever had was at his restaurant, and I reckon he’s one of the best chefs this country has produced. Once you read this book and see what goes into his wonderful recipes, I’m sure you’ll agree with me.
