    It was a fun browse nonetheless -- simply styled and lovely photographs. I wasn't too sure what the point of the magazine was... visiting a city: check.... but were the recipes really that well matched to the destination? (outside of the poutine recipe, naturally).

    The bourbon pudding recipe looked delicious however!

      Ah, the hipster version of Bourdain's Lay-over!!! :-)

      It is well made, nice mise en page, nice pictures and settings; I did not completely read it ( at least the recipes), but is there another restaurant in Montreal other than Joe Beef ?

      Couple of years ago it was "Au Pied de Cochon" and now it's Joe Beef.

        i don't really get this magazine.
        it's style and no context. i wish there was some kind of narrative
        why should anyone go to any of these places?

          After checking out the previous edition and finding the author's website, I figured this is a small endeavour that really is simply a recipes & pretty photos from a passionate amateur (who lives in Montreal) than a straight up large circulation mag.

          I suspect the foodie author is more a photographer than a writer.

            Isn't she in Australia? I thought the photos were fabulous.

          I find it lovely. She's new to the city and wants to show it off. I think it's great and talks about a couple of places that I'd love to try. Good job! It's always nice to find people who move to this city and fall in love with it. Their point of view can be very refreshing.

            I was a bit harsh in my initial reaction . (

            It is well made.

            Max.
