"There's no question that Picard's irrepressible genius forms the nucleus of his Montreal restaurant, but more than anything, Au Pied de Cochon: The Album is a testament to the remarkable culture that has been generated over the last five years by Picard in collaboration with his skilled and imaginative equipe." (Anthony Bourdain Gourmet Magazine 2008-03-26)
"A publishing phenomenon...an unconventional cookbook...But it's a serious cookbook, full of professional insights" (New York Times 2008-03-26)
"A 'must-reads for the food-obsessed [this] whimsically illustrated cookbook is a spirited tribute to all things fatty,porky, ducky and starchy" (Food and Wine Best of the Best 2008-03-26)
