Great book !!, Dec 9 2011
I was listening to CBC radio last week, and they were doing a review of the current and best cookbooks for Christmas. So based on what I heard, I ordered The Art of Living by Joe Beef, and Food of Morocco by Paula Walfert. In both cases, I was not disappointed.
The Joe Beef cookbook is a travelogue of sorts on building a restaurant, with great photos, and some very interesting (never heard of recipes)... Absolutely can't wait to dig into this book, so much so that I re-ordered 5 more copies for friends/family - everybody is getting it for Christmas this year.
Highly recommended. Interesting vignettes in the history of Montreal thrown with "where to shop, sighseeing, where to eat/stay" etc. combined with amazing photos and great recipes.
If you are a past visitor or a fan of Montreal - this book is a must have. Guaranteed ... you won't be disappointed. Cheers!
