About the book
Sex & Drugs & Sausage Rolls is Michelin-starred chef Graham Garrett's autobiographical cookbook, with recipes inspired by his transformation from stadium-filling rock star to groundbreaking chef.
Written together with food writer Cat Black, the book reveals how his love of food started in 60s East End London and has been heavily inspired by his experiences touring the world as a musician. There are over 50 original recipes, from Miso-glazed Mackerel to Catalan Trifle and chorizo crusted rabbit to sausage rolls like you never tasted before. With influences drawn from American, British, Indian, Japanese, Russian and Thai cuisines – this book is an amalgamation of cultures in the kitchen resulting in a unique collection of very special dishes.
As a musician Graham rubbed shoulders with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Freddie Mercury and Talking Heads. As a chef, he's worked for and alongside some of the biggest names in the business, including Gordon Ramsay, Nico Ladenis and Richard Corrigan.
The London-born musician and songwriter has worked in kitchens since the early 90s. In 2002 he and his partner Jackie bought The West House restaurant in Kent, where he was awarded a Michelin star that he's held ever since.
With a foreword by Richard Corrigan and photography by Adrian Franklin.
