Buon Appetito Toronto! is the story of how Italian-Canadian food culture has evolved in the city and how its influence has helped define our perceptions of what constitutes a good meal. From the convivial social dynamics of the Italian table, to the quest for the perfect coffee, to the introduction of food products and artisanal wine from Europe, Italian-Canadians have led the way in educating Torontonians about the pleasures of the table. Through interviews with 28 of the city's most important chefs, restaurateurs importers and manufacturers, Buon Appetito Toronto! gathers together the people that set the standard for culinary creativity and changed the culture of a great city.
