About the Book

Chefs Eat Breakfast Too is Darren’s fifth book, and the third in his clever and quirky ‘Chefs Eat‘ series. 

Packed full of the sort of recipes that make Melbourne’s all day breakfast cafe’s irresistible, this epic collection of breakfast recipes will have you going to bed early in anticipation – of making the best breakfast all yourself.  

Go beyond ‘smashed avo’ – think  perfect eggs, delicious breakfast bowls or even breakfast pizza or chicken congee with crispy doughnuts. And then of course there’s the best way to start (or end) your day: Bressert (Breakfast Dessert). Who wouldn’t be tempted by chocolate streusel brioche or chocolate and vanilla glazed doughnuts?

It’s pretty much add good coffee… and chill out!
