Andrew McConnell’s Supernormal is one of Australia’s most loved restaurants inspired by the cooking of Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo and Shanghai, opening on Melbourne’s Flinders Lane in 2014 to great acclaim, followed by this cutting-edge cookbook first published in 2015.

This refreshed 2023 edition features a striking new cover and includes the recipe for his iconic lobster roll and 88 more diverse dishes across eight chapters. Beautifully photographed by Earl Carter, it celebrates the irresistible lure of dumplings and tonkatsu, the comforting serenity of ramen, the bracing kick of kimchi and pickles and the addictive qualities of pipis and XO.

It’s about midnight snacks and lunchtime feasting. It’s about bringing flavours from Asia, Europe and Australia together in surprising and traditional ways. And of course, it’s about sharing great food and eating well.

About the Author

One of Australia’s most successful chefs and restauranteurs, Andrew McConnell brings exceptional attention to detail and trend-setting style to everything he does. His groundbreaking restaurant group Trader House operates critically acclaimed venues such as Gimlet, recently named number 84 on the World's 50 Best Restaurants 2022 longlist. His stable also includes fine diner Cutler and Co, wine bar Marion, all-day icon Cumulus Inc, classic pub Builders Arms Hotel, and gÙourmet grocer Meatsmith. He is the author of Cumulus Inc (Penguin) and Supernormal (distributed by Hardie Grant) and the upcoming Meatsmith (Hardie Grant).

Andrew's professional experience was in classical European cooking, but his passion for Asian food was ignited while living and working in China for five years heading kitchens in Hong Kong and Shanghai. He immersed himself in the local home cooking and vibrant street food culture of not only Chinese food, but also Korean and Japanese cuisine. This diverse culinary background led to the distinct cuisine found on the menu at Supernormal.
