Appetite for Books
The international infatuation with our local celebrity chefs – Au Pied de Cochon’s Martin Picard, Joe Beef’s Dave McMillan and Fred Morin, Toqué’s Normand Laprise, Garde Manger’s Chuck Hughes , etc.– shows no sign of waning, so for a glimpse into their way of thinking and cooking, you might want to attend a cooking class or book-signing session at one of Montreal’s top foodie shops: Appetite for Books
Chef and owner Jonathan Cheung is personal friends with all the local biggies, hosting occasional autograph nights with chefs like Chuck Hughes and Martin Picard. He also teaches classes to groups of 10 where he demoes recipes that appear in the books he sells. “Students” eat and sip wine around a counter as he cooks, and take the books home at the end. Check the site for the upcoming schedule.
