Celebrity fashion consultant, TV presenter, author and chef, Gok Wan, is set to be in the next edition of The Great British Cookbook. The cookbook, which is in aid of two fantastic charities; MacMillan Cancer Support and Hospitality Action, was first released in October 2014, with the second book coming out later this year.
Gok Wan, who is originally from Leicester, is an awarding winning TV presenter and recently delved into the cooking business with his TV show ‘Gok Cooks Chinese’ which was followed by his first cookbook of the same name. He has won multiple awards for his endeavours on TV including, Miss Plus Size International Award for Best Stylist in 2013, the Royal Television Society award for Best Lifestyle Programme, TV Choice Awards for Best Factual Entertainment Award and the Media Award from the British Hairdressing Awards.
Probably best known for his TV show ‘How to look good naked’ and his reoccurring role on ITV’s ‘This Morning’, Gok has proved himself to be a dab hand in the kitchen, particularly when it comes to Chinese food.
The cookbook itself features 200 different recipes that are created by 200 restaurants and chefs, with some having Michelin Stars, AA Rosettes and celebrities. The recipes and chefs are chosen from 10 different regions of the UK to make sure that the cookbook becomes as diverse and creative as possible. With all proceeds going to the two charities mentioned, the book is a great way to show your support and cook some delicious starters, main courses and deserts too.
The first Great British Cookbook was an online publication that could be purchased through Amazon, Apple and Android. However, the second edition of the cookbook, as well as sticking to its roots and being an online publication, will also be coming out in a printed version. The estimated 600+ page cookbook is brilliant value for money. You are guaranteed to find a recipe for any occasion, as well as learn about all the chefs in the book through their bio’s and images.
