While British chefs such as Gordon Ramsay and American culinary artists are received well in Canada, Canadian chefs remain relatively undiscovered, even in their own country.Food critic, wine connoisseur, and urban bon vivant, Jacob Richler is known for his particualr assessment of all things culinary. His reviews are typically spot-on and he doesnrs"t suffer culinary gaffes kindly. But when it comes to celebrating the best, he does it wholeheartedly and with an elegance in the writing that leaves his readers begging for another helping. In My Canada Includes Foie Gras , Richler profiles 10 chefs, including himself, and features signature menus from each. In this celebration of fine Canadian dining, the luminaries profiled include Rob Feenie, Susur Lee, Mark McEwan, and Mark Thuet. The book features 40 photographs of selected dishes, along with a portrait of each chef. Richler proves that Canadian cooking is original, refined, and world-class.
