Graham Garrett and his book Sex & Drugs & Sausage Rolls

Food Book Club on Wednesday 18th July

Michelin-starred chef Graham Garrett's autobiographical cookbook features recipes inspired by the story of his transformation from stadium-filling rock star to groundbreaking chef, written with food writer Cat Black.

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 with bedrooms 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 cookable dishes.

Tickets are £47.50 per person and include a two-course Michelin-starred lunch cooked from the book and a signed copy of the book rrp £35.
