Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine Dining at Home! If you have ever eaten at the Chez Piggy restaurant and like to cook this book is an absolute must! If you've never eaten there and like to cook this book is still a must! I like to cook but I'm not an expert and found the instructions very clear. I've tried quite a few recipes - from a very unique chilli recipe to blueberry creme brulee and they have all turned out well. The recipes cover a wide range of cultural backgrounds and offer creative combinations that you only find in a restaurant menu. This book lets you bring fine dining to your own kitchen.

About the Author

The Chez Piggy Cookbook is just one of the many legacies of the enduring partnership between Zalman Yanovsky and Rose Richardson, two extraordinary people who created an oasis of lively comfort -- and so much more -- in the heart of a small university town they called home.

Famously different in temperament and personal style, Zal and Rose effortlessly shared the qualities they regarded as essential to living the good life: joie de vivre, creativity, generosity, kindness, loyalty, a sense of social justice and a work ethic that wouldn''t quit. For more than a quarter of a century, in big ways and small, they helped make Kingston, Ontario, a better place to live.

They are greatly missed by all who were lucky enough to know them, but that was just another of their gifts: You felt luck to have known them. Zal''s exuberant spirit and Rose''s gentle wisdom live on in their friends and customers, in the social programs they sponsored and in the thriving businesses they left in the capable hands of their daughter, Zoe Yanovsky.
