Talking Tastebuds with Max La Manna

Welcome to season 5 of Talking Tastebuds!

This week’s guest is zero waste chef and author, Max La Manna. Max grew up in Connecticut in the US, with French and Italian immigrant heritage. He spent the early part of his twenties modelling and acting, but food was, is and always will be the constant feature. After working and cooking in a Michelin starred restaurant in New York, he turned his attention to cooking for intimate supper clubs and dinner parties, whilst sharing his passion for plant based, zero waste food on social media.

Max’s utterly brilliant debut book More Plants Less Waste is a cookbook and low impact living manual, which is released on Thursday 22nd August in the UK and on 31st March 2020 in the US.

Like what you heard? I’ll be interviewing Max again at Whole Foods Kensington on Wednesday September 4th at 1830. We'd love to see you! Tickets:
