Here in Montreal Joe Beef is a classic. I do have a lot of respect for the owners and share a very similar philosophy on food and life in general.

Got this book after a recent visit to the restaurant. This book is truly inspiring. All restaurant owners should read this.

One of the best restaurants in Montreal, and in Canada. This is a good insight in to the culture of Joe Beef and the iconic recipes we all love.

If you haven't tried Joe Beef, do yourself a favour and go, now. The place is simply amazing, everything is fresh and flavourful, plus the owners have a very unique view on cooking and running a restaurant. Obviously, most of the recipes are on the heavy side, so I wouldn't advise cooking these recipes everyday, but if you feel like indulging in rare treats, just like the restaurant, go for it, this book is perfect. Hell, even if you don't cook any recipe, the book is worth reading, especially the intro written by David Chang.

This book is a beautiful excess -- glorious recipes are unabashedly over-the-top, with fantastic combinations to make your tastebuds drool. An oral history of Montreal and Quebec from the vantage point of two souls who love their province in all of her messed-up glory. Foie gras and horse meat are included, along with thoughtful musings on how to garden above the 49th parallel, why brown liquor is usually a bad idea, and bacon cubes to match the seasons. Morin and McMillan are revered -- this is clear proof as to why.

This is not just a book of recipes (thought the ones included are unique and decadent in many ways), it'a a book about food culture and why food matters. Great insight into Montreal, great stories, historical tidbits and beautiful photos.

The book is a good translation of what the restaurant offers. Challenging recipes paired with easy ones.
Check out the Lobster Homard for sure.
However, I didn't open the book for sometime, and when we did, noticed that many of the inside pages were damaged. Likely a printing error, which Is why I give only a okay rating.
