Contributor Notes

EARLS RESTAURANT is a group of individually-compelling restaurants and one of North America’s most successful family-run, independent restaurant groups. Launched by father-and-son duo Leroy Earl “Bus” Fuller and Stanley Earl Fuller in the early ‘80s, Earls now has a total of 58 locations across Canada and 10 US locations in Massachusetts, Washington, Colorado, Illinois, Texas, Florida and Virginia.

Excerpt: Earls The Cookbook (Anniversary Edition): Eat a Little. Eat a Lot. Over 120 of Your Favourite Recipes (edited by Jim Sutherland)

The memories made since Earls first opened its doors back in 1982 now span generations. The special moments we’ve shared, the irreplaceable friendships we’ve made and the adventurous places we’ve travelled to together leave me feeling blessed. What an honour it has been to know and connect with so many amazing people over the years.

Since launching our cookbook back in 2016, Earls has grown to sixty-eight locations across North America, garnering all kinds of love for the new dishes, drinks and experiences that have kept our guests coming back time and time again.

I continue to be inspired by our uncompromising quest to bring new ingredients and cultural cuisines to our tables. It brings us joy to know that Leroy Earl “Bus” Fuller—our co-founder and pioneering visionary—got to experience all of it with us before his passing in 2019 at ninety years young. Not a day goes by that we’re not reminded of his exuberance and love for life, which live on in our restaurants.

So, as we celebrate this special edition of our cookbook, with new recipes for our most popular dishes and drinks over the past decade added, we do so in loving memory of the figurehead who helped start it all forty years ago. You’re forever in our hearts, Dad. This one’s for you.

Editorial Reviews

“A cosy and informative read. And it’s user-friendly, thanks to the home-testing of the recipes by chef Fay Duong.”
The National Post

“Earls has been a staple of the Canadian casual dining scene over the past 30 years. Its new cookbook is currently one of the best-selling books in the country and shares some of the most popular recipes since its humble beginnings. You can even make its famous Kung Pao at home. Just make sure you wrap the meal up with mocha Kahlua pie for dessert!”
