“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.

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
