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.Read more ›
