Irreverent, eccentric, Max's Picnic Book is the follow up the Sunday Times Bestseller, Max's Sandwich Book. Both an ode to the art of eating outdoors, and an entertaining, frivolous reinvention of it, Max and Ben will first redefine what the picnic is, and celebrate its true potential, before creating 16 themed menus. Including ingenious hacks—think flavored salts for dipping eggs and soft-serve with a shot of espresso—as well as twists on familiar favorites, this book about how and why we should picnic. Interpreting the ways in which we can eat outdoors through the eyes of their picnicking heroes, such as Hunter S. Thompson, Mary Berry and Snoop Dogg, the reader will be left with a broadened perception of what a picnic truly is.
About the Author
Max Halley is the name behind Max's Sandwich Shop, somewhat of a cult restaurant in north London. He has appeared on Sunday Brunch, where he has a regular spot as their chief "sandwicher", This Morning, and often pops up on Chris Evans' BBC Radio Two Breafast Show. He has also made several films for Vice. He has also written for The Guardian, Sunday Times and Fire and Knives, and will begin a weekly column in Evening Standard from June.
Ben is the perfect foil, an experienced and whip-smart restaurateur (his partner in Max's sandwich shop) and chef who has worked at the likes of Rochelle Canteen, The Dock Kitchen and Le Coq. The sandwich shop was winner of an OFM cheap eats award in 2015.
