Calgary's chefs want us to cook. Calgary Eats, the highly anticipated sequel to the bestselling cookbook Calgary Cooks, is a celebration one of Canada's most exciting food scenes. Featuring eighty recipes by forty of the city's leading chefs, mixologists, bakers, brewers and bartenders, this dynamic collection will encourage more people to get into the kitchen and make new discoveries about their food community - and best of all, have fun doing it. From Klein/Harris's unbelievable Caesar to Modern Steak's steak with peppercorn sauce to Teatro's deconstructed tiramisu, these delicious recipes are designed for home cooks of all skill levels to re-create their favourite restaurant dishes at home. One thing is for certain: Calgary chefs are committed to keeping us constantly fed, and we're all the better for it.
