The Art of Eating Cookbook: Ed Behr and James Macguire

The Art of Eating magazine has been called a cult favourite for serious foodies.

Since launching as a humble newsletter in 1986, The Art of Eating has preached the merits of simple, fine food and quality ingredients. And 25 years later, the best of the magazine has been condensed into The Art of Eating Cookbook.

Ed Behr is the founding editor of The Art of Eating magazine and the author of the cookbook.

James Macguire is the former chef and owner of Passe-Partout in Montreal.

They spoke with Sonali about the book and their efforts in the food industry.

Robbie Burns Day - beyond haggis

Chef Alain Monod.JPGRobbie Burns Day is coming up this week so we thought we'd devote our Food Feature to the Scottish poet and his fans around the world. Scotland's favourite son - and the author of the New Year's Eve song 'Auld Lang Syne' - was born on January 25th in 1759.

There are suppers and celebrations across Quebec. But the one prepared by award-winning Chef Alain Monod goes beyond the traditional haggis, potatoes and turnips. Chef Monod (left, with haggis) will be cooking at The University Club of Montreal on Jan 27, as he has been for the past 24 years.

He spoke with Sonali Karnick about how he got involved in Scottish cuisine in the first place and explains his menu for the Robbie Burns Day Supper.

Food Magazine: whoopie pies and gluten-free

whoopie pies.jpgFor many of us, weekends are all about food. We have more time to cook it, to go to the market or supermarket, and to entertain. Of course, we love talking about food on All in a Weekend!

That's why we're pairing up with Radio-Canada's TV show L'épicerie. They cover everything:  the industry, the trends, and the foods we love. One of L'épicerie's team, Caroline Paulhus, writes for both the TV show and their food magazine AND their books. She'll be joining us every couple of weeks. This week, we discuss gluten-free foods for our main course and whoopie pies for dessert.

(Here's Caroline's favourite recipe for whoopie pies: Whoopie pie recipe.doc .)
