There are many ways to cook a burger, to mix a drink, to serve some fries. Yianni Papoutsis and Scott Collins, the men behind #MEATEASY, MEATliquor and MEATmission, share their unique experiences on the wildest frontiers of culinary culture in this, The MEATliquor Chronicles: Chapter and Verse.
From New Cross to Marylebone, Hoxton Market to Brighton, Yianni and Scott have blazed a demonic trail through the best restaurants in London, Brighton and most recently Leeds over the past four years, bringing crowds of the converted in their wake.
Starting out with the Burning Man festival and the adventures had in the original MEATwagon, back in 2009, The MEATliquor Chronicles lays disrespectful waste to the accepted notion of what a cookbook associated with a famous restaurant can and might be. Yes, you will learn how to make perfect homemade burgers and a wealth of other dishes, and yes, you will find cocktail recipes galore. But this is a book too with a story and a mission. Yianni and Scott have welcomed Booker Prize-winning author DBC Pierre in-house to help reconstruct their intoxicating and intoxicated journey from South London reprobates to gastronomic enfants terribles.
Lavishly illustrated and designed, and with contributions from a host of bleeding-edge chefs, The MEATliquor Chronicles is the Unholy Cow of all cookery books, and a manifesto of true pleasure.
