2 minutes with Michelin-starred chef Nathan Outlaw

Chef Nathan Outlaw shares his new book, Home Kitchen, and tells Ella Walker about his death row meal

Nathan Outlaw

Nathan Outlaw, chef, restaurateur and all round lovely bloke, is back with a new book, Home Kitchen. Written with nostalgia, home cooking and his two children in mind – how one day they’ll head off into the world, to university or college and will have to feed themselves – it’s a catch-all book, designed to cover everything you need to know to survive and eat well. And no, it's not just seafood.

We caught up with Nathan briefly to grill him on the truly important stuff… EMBED END Instagram
