Product Description


My Canada Includes Foie Gras is a great addition to the Canadian gourmand library. Richler takes us on a passionate gastronomic journey across the country.” - Daniel Boulud, Restaurant Daniel, NYC

“Jacob Richler’s food-centric tales relate in rich detail a life full of adventure and belly-bloating joy. Through his patriotic curiosity and thoughtful research, we learn the intricacies of Canada’s flavourful but often overlooked culinary history. As a smoked meat deprived ex-pat, My Canada Includes Foie Gras made me long for the smells, sounds and tastes of my homeland.” - Gail Simmons, bestselling author of Talking with My Mouth Full

“Witnessed in Canada’s most accomplished kitchens—including Richler’s own—this is the gourmets’ gospel, last testament of the golden age of eating. Read it when you’re very, very hungry.” - James Chatto, award-winning food writer and restaurant critic

“A wonderful and highly personal account of what’s good to eat in Canada, where to find it and how to cook it. His tales of the gastronomic habits and eccentricities of the Richler family are fascinating. Richler knows and has worked with the top chefs in the country. He is highly knowledgeable, acutely discriminating, loves controversy and takes no prisoners. A must-read for all who care about what goes into their stomach.” - Sondra Gotlieb, journalist and award-winning novelist

Jacob Richler's chronicles of his cross-Canada epicurean adventures has whet my appetite for some Quebecois country cooking and a medium fat smoked meat sandwich. While Mr. Richler successfully conveys his passion for cooking and gives us delectable insights into the culinary backgrounds and comestible creations from some of Canada's premier chefs; Jacob scion of the comedic giant author Mordecai Richler- does not appear to possess the acerbic wit and dastardly sense of adventure that characterized his father's writing. Alas there is more of scallions in the younger Richler than rapscallion.
