Max’s Sandwich Book

by Max Halley and Ben Benton


Max Halley is a serious chef who learnt his trade at some of London's most acclaimed restaurants including Arbutus and Salt Yard and Brindisa. His decision in 2014 to open Max’s Sandwich Shop in the distinctly unflashy North London neighbourhood of Stroud Green might seem an odd career-shift, but Max’s are sandwiches like no other. The website makes the justified boast that “Max's Sandwich Shop changed the sandwich.” Read the book to find out how!
