Based on a day at Cumulus, Andrew McConnell's first book gathers his recipes for the signature dishes that keep people coming back for more
In a few short years, Cumulus Inc. has won a place in many hearts. With its open kitchen, industrial architectural elements and light streaming in through the bank of windows, it is somewhere to gather, talk and eat at any time of day. And the food fits like a glove, starting with the perfect breakfast and ending with a late-night charcuterie plate.
This is food for the way we eat now.
‘A master chef of considerable humility, and with a passion for his craft driven by an astute intellect and a fine palate’ Damien Pignolet
