Then I dragged my sorry arse to Muswell Hill, met the salads made by Chris Kitch and understood that I was wrong.

Kitch does things to salads that you would never think of doing at home.

A potato salad, with sliced gherkins and caramelised onions, appears to have been made with grain mustard, but has uncommon depth of flavour.

I pile in ginger and lemon and honey and a few other things and sit feeling warm and cared for.

■ Much like Chris Kitch, Bob Parkinson is a top-flight chef – he worked at Terence Conran's gastro palace Bibendum in London's Fulham – with simpler ambitions.

Meal for two, including drinks and service: £120 The first time I went to one of chef Christian Honor’s restaurants it was for salad.

Honor published a well-received cook book and made a noise with his big, chunky salads and his ways with roasted salmon.

The food on those plates begins with a salad of coconut, coriander leaf and twice-cooked quinoa.

But the swoon-worthy moment comes with rock oyster shells filled with buttery scrambled eggs, shifted out of the column headed “comfort food” by the addition of chives.

It says much for the mains that, watching Honor plating them up, I couldn’t decide which I wanted for myself: the belly pork with the wobble of slow-cooked egg; the crisped-skinned salmon with the endive tart; the “blackened” cylinder of lamb, flames still flickering around it as if it was lifted off the grill and on to the plate.
