Billed "The Crazy Canuck"by GQ Magazine, but known as "King of the Q"closer to home, Chef Ted Reader has been widely acclaimed for his cooking's cheeky inventiveness and fabulous flavours.
Sticky Fingers and Tenderloins is a collection of Ted's favourite recipes — on and off the grill. You'll marvel at his decadent and delicious foot-high burger, Margarita Wings, Root Beer Ribs, Cinnamon-Skewered Scallops with Peach-Orange Salsa, Devil's Brewed (and beer steamed) Roast Chicken and his Rocketship 7 Peanut Butter and Jelly Steaks. But that's only the tip of the skewer! Besides finger-licking rib, steak and fish recipes (Cedar-Planked Beef Tenderloin Stuffed with Blue Cheese and Apple Cider BBQ Atlantic Salmon, to name a couple), there are sultry sides such as Baked Sweet Potatoes with Maple Orange Butter and Southern Corn and Cheddar Pudding. You'll also find Ted's heavenly beginnings, including an incredible Shrimp Parfait and show-stopping Infiniti Dip, with 25-plus layers of cheese, salsas and guacamole.
