Publisher Comments:

Indispensable inspiration for weekend chefs

Called Canada's Jamie Oliver, Ricardo is a best-selling author and the massively popular host of his own television show. His first book, Ma Cuisine Week-End, was published in 2005 to critical acclaim and quickly became a solid bestseller.

This welcome edition has the same 140 recipes, with wine recommendations, dedicated to weekend gatherings. The recipes are intensely tested in Larrivee's own home — the dishes are long-standing favorites of his wife and three children and the many guests who share their table. Some of the sumptuous dishes in the book are these tempters: Ricotta-stuffed Crepes with Orange Sauce Cuban Lemonade and Tapas Venison Steaks in Cep Sauce and Grilled Hazelnuts paired with a classic Gratin Dauphinois Chocolate Cake au Coeur Fondant Roasted Pork with Apples and Maple.

The recipes are straightforward yet allow for improvisation. Weekend Cooking will satisfy the desire for eye-pleasing presentation as well as the appetite for fantastic taste.

Synopsis:

The book to accompany the new Food Network Canada show.

Acclaimed chef Ricardo launched his new 26-episode Food Network Canada series, Ricardo and Friends, in October 2006. In each episode, Ricardo cooks a three-course home meal for a group of friends, proving that it's easy to entertain while cooking simple, accessible and fun meals. Along the way, Ricardo explains the health and nutritional properties of the recipe, and shares his tips. Ricardo and Friends airs three times weekly.

Look for his magazine, Ricardo, a favorite already in Quebec and now available coast to coast in English. Published five times a year, it includes recipes from Ricardo and Friends.

This cookbook by the first French Canadian with a show on the Food Network allows home cooks to enjoy a superb compilation of over 140 recipes, wine recommendations and stunning food photography. Inspired by intimate gatherings on weekends with family and friends, Weekend Cooking designs menus to awaken readers' appetites.

Among the selections: Ricotta-stuffed pancakes with orange sauce Sweet potato soup with apples and cloves Lasagna with eggplant caviar and grilled sweet red peppers Cold salmon roast with shrimp and vegetable stuffing Chicken supremes stuffed with ricotta and dried tomatoes Sublime coconut cake.

Home cooks will not want to miss out on this exceptional book by the Food Network's newest face.

Synopsis:

Ricardo Larrivee is a household name in Quebec with his own cooking show and magazine. This translation of his first cookbook contains 140 tested recipes with wine recommendations — family favorites for entertaining.
