Michelin-starred chef Graham Garrett's autobiographical cookbook features recipes inspired by the extraordinary story of his transformation from stadium-filling rock star to groundbreaking chef.The London-born musician and songwriter has worked in kitchens since the early 90s, running restaurants for renowned chefs such as Nico Ladenis and Richard Corrigan. In 2002 he and his partner Jackie bought The West House restaurant in Kent, which was soon awarded a Michelin star. But if you were an avid concertgoer back in the day you've probably seen Graham's face before. He spent the 80s in the music business, touring the world on drums for bands like Dumb Blondes, Panache and Ya Ya. At 31, Graham hung up his drumsticks, walked into a kitchen and hasn't looked back since. Until now. The book follows Graham's transformation from rock star to Michelin-starred chef and reveals how his love of food started young in 60s East End London and has been heavily inspired by his experiences touring the world as a musician.You'll find more than 50 recipes, from a simple way to make great butter to Miso-glazed Mackerel with Yuzu Mayonnaise to Catalan Trifle, with influences drawn from American, British, Indian, Japanese, Russian and Thai cuisines - a true amalgamation of cultures in the kitchen resulting in a unique collection of eminently cookable dishes. With a foreword by Richard Corrigan and photography by Adrian Franklin.
