'You're buying White Heat because you want to cook well? Because you want to cook Michelin stars? Forget it. Save your money. Go and buy a saucepan.'
 
One of the most influential cook books of a generation. A 29-year-old, two Michelin star wielding, Marco Pierre White presents himself as the 'bad boy' of British cooking in this part-memoir, part-cook book. Bob Carlos Clarke's grainy photographs capture the anarchic chef in his kitchen. An even younger Gordon Ramsay can be spotted in the background. Every one of White's sentences is eminently quotable. A collection of recipes completes the book.
