Max’s first cookbook, Max's Sandwich Book, was a Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller. He writes regularly for the Evening Standard and has written for the Sunday Times, the Guardian, the Observer, Vice, the Independent, the i Paper, among others.

In 2017, he started making a series called ‘The Sandwich Show’ for VICE/Munchies, in which he travels the UK to find inspiration for a new sandwich to put on his menu. Max is the resident sandwich and condiment expert on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch; he has also been a guest chef on ITV's This Morning.
