The Big Max

The Big Max, Max’s Picnic Book: An ode to the art of picnicking, from the authors of Max’ Sandwich Book by Max Halley & Ben Benton. Photography by Louise Hagger.

Max's Picnic BookIrreverent, eccentric, Max’s Picnic Book is the follow up the Sunday Times Bestseller, Max’s Sandwich Book. Both an ode to the art of eating outdoors, and an entertaining, frivolous reinvention of it, Max and Ben will first redefine what the picnic is, and celebrate its true potential, before creating 16 themed menus.

Including ingenious hacks—think flavored salts for dipping eggs and soft-serve with a shot of espresso—as well as twists on familiar favorites, this book about how and why we should picnic. Interpreting the ways in which we can eat outdoors through the eyes of their picnicking heroes, such as Hunter S. Thompson, Mary Berry, and Snoop Dogg, the reader will be left with a broadened perception of what a picnic truly is.

Max’s Picnic Book: An ode to the art of picnicking, from the authors of Max’ Sandwich Book is available at Amazon.com and Indigo.ca. (more…)
