Made in Quebec – A Culinary Journey
By Julian Armstrong
Price: $39.99 (hardback)
ISBN: 9781443425315
Published by HarperCollins Canada

Julian Armstrong takes us on a culinary journey through Québec in this gem of a cookbook, featuring local produce and delicacies from each season. Not only do we get great food from this book, we learn about the love affair between the people of Québec and their food.

I am a relatively new immigrant to Québec, and quite unfamiliar with much of the local produce. This book has been instrumental in developing my culinary understanding of local products and regional cuisines. The recipes are easy to follow and all feature fresh, local ingredients. From fiddlehead ferns to the tourtière du Saguenay, the variety of foods is impressive. Equally impressive are the photographs spread throughout the book.

LiQ_Mag_Sub_BannerThe food pictures will whet your palate, but what draws you in are the beautifully composed photographs of the various regions of the province.
As a coffee table book showing off the beauty of Québec, or a tried and true reference guide in the kitchen, this cookbook is a treat for anyone who is curious about Québec and its culinary traditions.
