Format: Hardcover
Toronto as a food city seems to be getting more press lately. With the recent openings of outposts from internationally acclaimed chefs, plus glowing praise of our own local talent, the time is ripe for a cookbook that focuses on Toronto and what’s cooking in the city. With Toronto Cooks, Amy Rosen has undertaken that seemingly enormous project.

Toronto Cooks features 103 recipes from “the city’s best restaurants”, of which there are 48 in the book. The recipes run the usual gamut of appetizers, sides, entrees, and desserts, but the book isn’t divided that way. Rather, the book dedicates a few pages to each restaurant beginning with a blurb about the restaurant and some of the dishes it is known for. Sometimes the description of the restaurant will include some thoughts from the chef, which I found more interesting than those that didn’t. I’m always interested in how chefs think about their food, and I consider their views a staple in a good cookbook.

I’ll start with a few quibbles. “Best” is a subjective term, but I noticed that some restaurants that routinely make “best of” lists and garner critical acclaim weren’t included. There’s also some overlap in the recipes. Out of the 103 recipes, four are for doughnuts. There are two burger recipes and two pasta recipes that are, essentially, pasta with tomato sauce. Surely, if Toronto is “known for its vibrant and varied food scene”, we can fill a cookbook with distinct recipes?

I cooked my way through ten recipes to get a feel for the book. The majority of them are highly approachable for the home cook. You will not find many recipes for which you will have too much difficulty acquiring the ingredients, though there are a couple that are, for those who want more of a challenge.

This is not just a beautiful cookbook, but also one that you'll use. Although the recipes are by some of Toronto's top chefs, there are definitely plenty of recipes that even a beginner home cook could try out, not to mention some "wow" recipes too! I've cooked a couple of things from the book already and the recipes seem consistent and tasty! Along with the recipes, there are lovely stories about the chefs and the restaurants featured. If you live in Toronto, you'll probably find a much-loved dish from your favourite chef in here, and for the rest of us, this makes a great souvenirs of the city.
