CADS & Mark Cunningham – in Perfect Harmony.


Congratulations to CADS member Mark Perfect Harmony Cunningham on the publication of his first book – Perfect Harmony. A mouth-watering book about Amsterdam’s top restaurant, La Rive in the Amstel Hotel.

PERFECT HARMONY consists of two books, WINE AND DINE, in one cloth binder.

LA RIVE is a special restaurant, famed for its outstanding French-Mediterranean cuisine, where the finest, seasonal ingredients, combined with constant innovation and painstaking attention to detail, are the alchemy for wonderful dining experiences.

British publicist Mark Cunningham became fascinated by La Rive and compiled a book around chef de cuisine Rogér Rassin and maître sommelier Ronald Opten.

The book is sumptuously presented, with fabulous images by top photographer Remko Kraaijeveld and the empathetic design of Ronald Timmermans.

Perfect Harmony features 29 of LA RIVE’s signature-dish recipes in the ‘dine’ book which uniquely and directly correspond with the fascinating stories of the wines served with each dish in the ‘wine’ book. It also unveils the people behind the aprons and suits, their passions and dreams.

The book exudes the unique and very special atmosphere of LA RIVE and is an asset to any coffee table or kitchen shelf. If you love great food and wine in special locations, this could be the book for you. A perfect personal or corporate gift this season.


Meet Mark at the CADS Jokathon on Friday December 12th and take a look for yourself. He’ll be happy to tell you about his book and the fascinating stories behind it. Contact him directly to order your copy!
