HarperCollins has acquired Marcus at Home, the new cookbook from celebrity chef Marcus Wareing.
Publishing director Grace Cheetham acquired world rights from Rosemary Scoular at United Agents.
The judge of MasterChef: The Professionals owns a restaurant group Marcus Wareing Restaurants that includes three critically-acclaimed venues - the two Michelin-starred Marcus at The Berkeley, as well as The Gilbert Scott and Tredwell’s.
The new book promises to reveal "another side" to Wareing - away from the professional kitchens, when he’s at home, cooking the food he loves to share with his family and friends.
Marcus at Home will include meals for different times during the week, with separate chapters devoted to Midweek and Weekend, as well as to Entertaining and Baking. It focuses on "great flavours and inspirational touches", according to HarperCollins.
Choice recipes include an "indulgent" Eggs & Avocado with Chorizo Jam and Buttermilk Pannacotta with Thyme Crumble.
Cheetham said: "I’m so excited to be bringing Marcus’ wonderful recipes to a new audience. For the first time, he’s showing readers how he applies the quality and inventiveness he’s so well-known for to his home-cooking – and how we can do the same. Full of mouth-watering recipes for every occasion, Marcus at Home will be the friendly guide to achieving delicious meals all week long."
Wareing added: “It is exciting to be bringing out a new cookbook to share my favourite recipes from home. Cooking at home is something my family all get involved in so not only will you see some of my favourite dishes but also my wife’s and children’s too – there is something for everyone! I want to show that no matter what experience you have in the kitchen all of these recipes are fun and, most importantly, easy. Just follow the recipe and you will soon be your very own master chef!”
The book is due to publish on 20th October 2016.
