This is a book about an exceptional product and about the encounter between a renown chef and a rare and natural sugar. A cross between an art book and a culinary encyclopedia, it is as unique as the international reputation of the Au Pied de Cochon restaurant. Culinary research intersects with tradition in this book which is as iconoclastic as Martin Picard’s world famous cuisine. Mixing genres and styles, just like this chef does in his kitchen, the book offers a touch of literature, a smattering of sexy images together with scientific information and cutting-edge gastronomical research.

More than just another cookbook, this book wants to mark the passage of time. It describes an entire
year in the restaurant, in sync with the rhythms of the seasons, from the silences to the fiery outbursts in an internationally recognized kitchen. It pays tribute to gastronomical and sugarmaking traditions, intent on conserving them and passing them on. Maple syrup is as unique and rare a product as
truffles or caviar, and readers around the world will be introduced to the wide range of its qualities and
use throughout history.
