5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. 8 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was very reluctant to buy this book with it not having any previous reviews however an article involving the Joe Beef team in Lucky peach made me take a punt. Great book with great ideas of which I have used a few in the kitchen. If you don't end up cooking from it the stories will provide you with hours of enjoyment. Can't wait to visit next year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint of heart... 28 Dec 2011
By Kat M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Art of Living...Joe Beef cookbook is great. It has easy to follow recipes that are straight forward no frills. The flavors are out of control. Definitely not something for the calorie counter. Compared to the Au Pied de Cochon cookbook, Joe Beef is better in my opinion. PDC cookbook is hard to follow and pretty unrealistic in terms of ingredients. Joe Beef offers up alternatives to hard to find items as well as useful facts about Joe Beef from history, inspirations, ideas and even travel tips. Full of great ideas and funny anecdotes. Buy it if you love food.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really rather good 4 Jan 2012
By Fizzy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this on the basis that it was featured in 'Lucky Peach' vol 2. And I consider it a great purchase. Surprisingly approachable and user friendly, I've used it twice since I got it a week ago. I made steak tartare as a lunch to take to work and it was viewed jealously by my colleagues. The BBQ sauce is simple but good. I'll have a crack at a few more things over the coming weeks. Buy it. It's surprisingly good and whilst it has a Canadian-centric view, it's not impossible to replicate the recipes. And it's a fun read beyond the recipes. I wish I had a reason to Canada other than to go to Joe Beef...that would be excessive even by my standards. Unless they want to fly me there to do an ironic Australian review for a magazine or something. I wish.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great cookbook and then some. 14 Dec 2011
By Joe the Cook - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Delicious! Tasty! After cooking several recipes in this book I can't wait to try more of them. Excellent flavor combinations.
We really liked the "Spaghetti Homard-Lobster" and the "Little Sausages" I liked that they ask for ingredients I can easily buy and kitchen tools I've had for years.
The book is also about some folks who love their city, Montreal. I'm from NYC and can tell if a local is writing about my town so I was excited to read about their town. If you are going to Montreal forget the travel guides and read this book! The authors even talk about some of their favorite places to eat and shop. There are also sections about train travel, building a smoker (although I won't be) and enjoying wine (although I will be) and some great stories about the recipes, food and friends. After reading this book I think it would be great to hang out with the gang at Joe Beef.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most entertaining "cookbook of sorts" 28 Oct 2011
By R. S. M. Mathews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
What a wonderful read this book is! Whether you've been to Joe Beef or not, it's a fascinating story of a place--Montreal-- as much as a single restaurant. Sharing everything from their favorite train journeys to how to make a backyard smoker, this book is far more than its 135 recipes. Those, however, make great vicarious eating adventures--especially if you are fan of foie gras, red meat and oysters. Here's to Joe Beef and to Frederic Morin and David MacMillan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like the city itself, a wonder 12 Oct 2011
By Duncan R. Firth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As a chef and a former resident of Montreal, I eagerly awaited the arrival of this book. More than just a cookbook, although it is an excellent one, it is a monologue, a travelogue, a history lesson and a testament to the beautiful madness of the French Canadians. It is the funniest cookbook you'll ever read and one of the smartest. It left me checking Air Canada flights back to Montreal and dinner at Joe Beef.
