"I have spent the last few years building up my career in this great city, so it’s an honour to be in the same book with so many well-respected 
chefs and restaurants,” said Justin Brown. Brown opened The Chippy a little over a year ago, and the book features his popular fish & chips recipe. It also details his pork belly bao bun from his trendy Bao Buns Amsterdam pop-up.

"Amsterdam continues to feel like a new place to me; it’s cosy – more like a cosmopolitan village with its small streets and shops, and that’s what captured my imagination," said TV chef and restaurant owner Alain Caron. "I hope this appetizing book captures your imagination too!”

He wrote the forward to the book, and provided the escargot with monkfish fritters recipe from Café Caron.

Other restaurants featured include Blauw, The Butcher Social Club, and The Harbour Club. Zero food waste concept Instock is also profiled, with an interesting leftovers-based bubbles & squeak.

The Amsterdam Cook Book is available for €19.95 from book stores and the restaurants profiled. It may also be purchased on the Amazon UK site.
