Market Chronicles

bell peppers.jpgOur guest host Jeanette Kelly has discovered a common passion shared with our next guest... sour cherries. The cherries her mother and she used to bake pies - the red sour ones - in her Ontario childhood. To her delight, this week she discovered that sour cherries are available here in Quebec... but they're precious and scarce.

That's just one of the discoveries she made reading a new book by Montreal journalist and gourmet, Susan Semenak. It's called Market Chronicles. The market is Montreal's Jean Talon market in Little Italy. In a thick book full of photos, Susan tells the stories of the people who bring the produce to market from season to season and shares recipes.

Susan Semenak joins Jeanette in-studio on All in a Weekend.
