The farms, forests, and lakes that surround Toronto are invaluable resources for local and sustainable ingredients (and a good bit of foraging, too). Following on the heels of the bestselling cookbook, Toronto Cooks, the highly anticipated Toronto Eats is a multicultural spectrum of the city’s countless cultures from Mumbai chili crab to okonomiyaki. Boasting over 100 signature recipes from 50 amazing chefs, it is a gorgeous illustration of this city’s food scene, featuring chef-tested recipes from the most talented toques, as well as their stories. Best of all, the recipes are designed with the home cook in mind and can be re-created at home with ease. The world really can appear on a dinner plate.
“Toronto’s diverse, culturally-inspired dining scene has made it an international culinary destination. From Chinatown’s crispy pan-fried chive dumplings to the Distillery District’s succulent oysters, our city can satisfy just about every craving.” —Michael Bonacini, chef and partner of Oliver & Bonacini
“While everyone else wasn’t paying attention, Toronto became a culinary destination. I’m so happy to have some of their recipes to re-create for my family in New York.” —Molly Ringwald, American actress, singer, and author
“Toronto is my favourite home away from home. I couldn’t be more honoured that Milk Bar gets to call Toronto home, too.”—Christina Tosi, chef, founder, and owner of Momofuku Milk Bar
“Whether it’s a small mom and pop place or a giant glittering 200-seater, Toronto offers something for every palate, every mood and every pocket book. I look forward to many years of munching my way through this glorious, tasty and eclectic town.” – Jann Arden
