About the Book

From Masterchef: The Professionals quarter-finalist Carla Lamont.

This book shares the sensual beauty and bounty of the Isle of Mull through the eyes of restauranteur and MasterChef: The Professionals 2020 quarter-finalist Carla Lamont and photographer Dr Sam Jones. At Ninth Wave Restaurant, an enterprising couple have created one of Scotland’s hidden culinary gems. Multiple winner of Best Restaurant Award – VisitScotland, and two-time Winner of Restaurant of the Year – Highlands & Islands, Carla and her rugged fisherman husband Jonny have put Mull firmly on the food map.

After lovingly renovating a granite bothy on their windswept croft, they opened Ninth Wave as the first high-end restaurant on the Ross of Mull. The food is an exhilarating blend of the traditional and modern, using the wonderful natural larder of Mull and influences from exotic cuisines from all over the world.

Carla has gathered her experiences in this book full of magical imagery, tantalising recipes and quirky anecdotes about cooking, love, life and the challenges of running a restaurant at the edge of the Hebrides.

Gloriously illustrated with atmospheric food and landscape pictures of an award-winning photographer, this memoir and cookbook captures the hedonistic joy of all that is the Ninth Wave experience.
