James Sommerin

£39.95 + £8 P&P

This eagerly-anticipated debut book from the multi-award-winning James Sommerin goes behind behind the scenes at the chef's eponymous restaurant, in Penarth. Lavishly photographed, large format and boxed, it charts James' journey to winning his first Michelin star at The Crown, at Whitebrook, before repeating the feat in 2016 at Restaurant James Sommerin.

Self-effacing and focused on great food, craftspeople and artisanship, it provides rare insight into the life of a top flight chef. The multi-award-winning James is a winner of the AA Welsh Restaurant of the Year, holds a Michelin star, 4 *** AA rosettes and has a score of 7 in The Good Food Guide.

James said: "I'm delighted to have written my first book. It's a story that focuses on family and food. My grandmother and parents were influential and supportive and in turn I'm encouraging my own children to be part of the restaurant."

The book features a foreword by Claude Bosi and a series of launch dinners are planned. Visit for more details.
