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.
