Chiltern Firehouse
  • Chiltern Firehouse

  • When the Chiltern Firehouse opened in 2013 it was an immediate success with the restaurant and chef Nuno Mendes’ menu at its heart. Lisbon-born, Mendes draws on influences from his career split between the United States and Europe to create contemporary recipes with an American accent. From the signature crab doughnuts to maple-glazed salmon and frozen apple panna cotta, Mendes delivers recipes of reimagined classics and bold new flavours.

    Chiltern Firehouse: The Cookbook brings together not just Nuno Mendes’ recipes; it also delves into the Firehouse’s love affair with cocktails and goes behind the scenes of the Chiltern Firehouse with exclusive photography and stunning design.
