Fay Maschler reviews Claude's Kitchen

Claude Compton... is providing exceptionally fine cooking and the sort of wholesome high spirits that suggests Famous Five in the ancestry.
Claude Compton has worked in various Michelin-starred kitchens including Petersham Nurseries — with both Skye Gyngell and Greg Malouf — and Club Gascon, neither of those the sort of prissy kitchens the Red Guide can imply. A kitchen on view and a short menu that stops ordering in its tracks because you just want everything on it.
