Cooking as it should be. Fun, primal, big flavoured and big boned. A humorous and thorough romp through this stripped back, unpretentious, all embracing Montreal restaurant. A Canadian St. John with less somber, more fanfare. Not all the recipes or presentations are to my taste, but it is a unique and joyous shout from the shelf.
Executive Chef and owner of Estrella
Not only are the recipes amazing but this book has some of the most humorous drawings in it ever. I find myself referring back to this book often for inspiration and laughter. I dream of a day I can cook with Chef Martin.
