FRIDAY BARGAINS: Free Marcus Wareing Cookbook

Miss Thrifty2 February 27, 2009

Are you in the UK? If you are, buy tomorrow’s Sunday Telegraph – and get a free hardback cookbook by tip-top Michelin-starred chef Marcus Wareing!

Full details of the offer can be found here. The only catch is that you have to buy the newspaper from a Morrisons supermarket. They’ll be handing out the cookbooks there and then – no faffing around with coupons and postage.

The book is How To Cook the Perfect…, which contains more than 80 popular recipes and retails at £20.

This is a great offer: in years gone by I had the pleasure of sampling Marcus’ cooking on more than one occasion, and it was always amazing. (I went there for work: tough life, eh?) The first time I ate at his restaurant Petrus I was a hardcore vegetarian. Some razzle-dazzle chefs would have thrown the ladle at me; others would have palmed me off with a butternut squash risotto. Marcus Wareing sent out specially-made dishes that were so beautiful to look at and so delicious, I daydreamed about them for months and months afterwards. Lovely man; lovely food.

If you aren’t in the UK, you can always check out the YouTube vid above (or here, if you’re reading this via e-mail) that was put together a couple of years ago, to accompany the book’s publication.

Dear Miss Thrifty,

My wife and I happened to be in Britain when The Sunday Telegraph had this great bargain offer. As we were staying in Brighton we made our way to Morrisons in nearby Seaford just to be told that ‘How to cook perfect’ had not been delivered. The employees in Morrisons suggested we should come again on the following Monday but when we did so, the book had still not been delivered. So, as we were eager to obtain a copy of the book, I emailed the Sunday Telegraph to tell them our story and they very obligingly offered to send us a copy to our home address in France. The book arrived today and we think it is very interesting and straightforward.The ste-by-step recepies seem very clear and we know what we are talking about as we have dozens of cookbooks and scrapbooks with recepies clipped from mags and newspapers from all parts of the world. Thank you very much for this good tip!
