Tom Kitchin's unique marriage of seasonal Scottish produce with the classical French technique has universal application. He is totally committed to fresh seasonal ingredients, cooked simply. His sumptuous cookbook is divided into four sections—Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter—and showcases the ingredients which are available and at their best each month of the calendar year. Edinburgh-born, he has spent more than 10 years working alongside three star chefs Pierre Koffman at La Tante Claire, Guy Savoy in Paris, and Alain Ducasse in Monte Carlo. This collection of recipes is peppered with personal stories and anecdotes from working with these culinary masters.

Tom Kitchin opened The Kitchin in June 2006 to unanimously favorable reviews. Six months after it opened, it earned a Michelin star—the fastest to be awarded.From Publishers Weekly:
Scottish chef Kitchin, helmsman of an eponymous Michelin-starred restaurant, offers a culinary tour of his restaurant in this dense memoir-cookbook. Following a long-winded account of his (less-than-remarkable) journey to chefdom, Kitchin finally gets to cooking, setting the tone with Spring dishes like Asparagus Hollandaise, a simple Lemon Sole Meuniere, and a Leek and Potato Soup dressed up with a crispy ox tongue and a poached egg. For every classic, there are inventive riffs, including Razor Clams with Chorizo and Lemon and Gnocchi with Blue Cheese, two examples that are well within the capabilities of eager cooks; however, they may hit a wall trying to source rabbit kidneys for Rabbit With Macaroni and Mustard Sauce, or the principal ingredients in Lamb's Tongues with Sweetbread Ravioli. Kitchin also includes labor-intensive showpieces such as his signature dish, the epic Boned and Rolled Pig's Head with Langostines and a Crispy Ear Salad, likely to send even the most inspired cooks phoning for a reservation instead. Anglophiles who've visited Kitchin's restaurant will find this a warm souvenir, and gastronomes on this side of the pond will appreciate Kitchin's riffs and combinations, though the hefty price and UK measurements may give them pause.
