I believe you would do very well on a desert island with this book. I’d definitely take it. It’s funny, it’s true, it’s VERY Montrealian, it’s old school and new school, it’s flavour and enjoyment and love of the table. I would chop down a tree, age the wood, plane out a table, and cook just one thing from this book, and know I had created a new civilisation.

This cookbook blew my mind when it came out, totally upending what I assumed what a cookbook had to be. Modern restaurant cookbooks would be much stuffier without Joe Beef.
