With a focus on quality ingredients, imaginative flavour combinations and simple presentation, the food at Maze is served in small tapas-style portions, enabling the customer to sample a wide variety of dishes in a single meal.In "Maze, The Cookbook", Jason reveals the secrets of 30 of his signature dishes served as they would be in the restaurant, including Marinated Beetroot with Goat's Cheese, Chard and Beetroot Dressing, Butter Roasted Cod with Silky Mash and Spiced Lentils, and Mango Parfait with Orange Anise Jelly. Each dish is followed by two more recipes based on the same core ingredients, flavourings, or techniques created by Jason especially for the book. So, whether you're looking to re-create the Maze experience in your own home or find inspiration from his extraordinary ingredients and flavour combinations, everything you need is here in this beautifully illustrated cookbook.
