Love brunch? Popular chef and restaurateur Joey Maggiore—of the popular over-the-top brunch destination Hash Kitchen—is ready to help others take it up a notch with his newest venture, a cookbook titled BRUNCH KING: Eats, Beats, and Boozy Drinks.

The book features recipes for favorites ranging from Bananas Foster Pancakes and Cannoli Donuts to Billionaire’s Bacon, Birria Bao Benedict, Ten-Layer Breakfast Lasagna, Crème Brûlée Waffles with Strawberries, Biscuits and Gravy “Yorkshire Puddings,” Build Your Own Bloody Marys, and Mega Mimosas topped with cotton candy.

In all, there are 70 recipes for what he dubs "flamboyantly delicious dishes." The book’s chapters include Gangsta Sweets: So Good It’s Almost Criminal, Let’s Get Cracking, and Hash, Hash Baby, along with a set list of tunes to dance to as your preparing the food and eating it.

Chef Joey, as he's called, opened his first restaurant when he was just 19. In addition to Hash Kitchen, he has the Maggiore Group of restaurants. 

The cookbook is currently available for preorder and will be released on Sept. 14, 2024.
