I've just heard that Martin Picard is putting out a book for the 5th anniversary of Au Pied de Cochon. BD, CD-Rom, Recipes...

Interview with Martin Picard on Radio-Canada

Has anybody seen it yet?

    As the French blub implies, it's a quirky book (like the restaurant itself). Haven't seen it yet but have heard that you're going to have to add a hacksaw to your *batterie de cuisine* if you want to cook every recipe.

    The book was written in French but an English version is also being published.

        (From a library website)

        If anyone feels like translating

        Un livre de 55 recettes truffé de plus de 600 photos et d'une cinquantaine d'illustrations, une bande dessinée de 48 pages, un DVD de 2 heures comprenant 5 recettes proposées par des invités de divers horizons et 6 clips documentaires tournés aux quatre coins du Québec.

        Le Pied de cochon Montréalais est ouvert depuis 2001. En quelques années, le réputé restaurant a accumulé nombre de distinctions et critiques élogieuses. Inspiré par la tradition de la brasserie québécoise, le chef Martin Picard s’efforce d’y servir des produits de haute qualité dans une atmosphère conviviale et festive. Plus qu’un livre de recettes, L’album est le récit d’une aventure culinaire et un hommage aux artisans de la gastronomie.
