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.

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.
