Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver may be bigger and flashier, but foodies in the know have been whispering another city’s name under their breath for years. The rest of us are about to be let in on the secret.

Where do you go if you want to experience a taste of farm-fresh cooking with an international flare? Or a slice of cake to make the angels sing? How about some traditional perogies made with some decidedly untraditional ingredients? What if you’re looking to try out a nouveau supper club, or a public feast at a family farm?
You go to Winnipeg.

In Winnipeg Cooks, thirty-five of the city’s epicurean trailblazers share stories and recipes from the frontlines of an emerging culinary hotspot. From the hearty eastern European standards of the working class North End to storied steakhouses that have fed generations to an explosion of bold hybrid menus by risk-taking young chefs—this is how Winnipeg cooks.

If you’re looking for inspiration for your next meal, look no further. Featuring the stunning photography of Ian McCausland and 70 mouth-watering and chef-tested recipes, Winnipeg Cooks will leave you hungry for more.
