With the upcoming launch of a little relish issue two due to be released on Monday 14th November 2011, and the recent release of the new Joe Beef cookbook, I thought it might be a bit exciting to do a little giveaway. The lucky winner will receive the new book 'The Art Of Living According To Joe Beef: A Cookbook Of Sorts', the Première Moisson 'Bread' book and a spatula and wooden spoon by my favourite cooking supply store here in Montréal - Les Touilleurs.
For those unfamiliar, Joe Beef is located in Little Burgundy Montréal and has quite a reputation in the food industry. The book was created by Frédéric Morin and David McMillan, both co-owners/chefs of Joe Beef, Liverpool House and McKiernan Luncheonette, and Meredith Erickson, one of Joe Beef's original staff. The book is beautifully photographed by Jennifer May and definitely an interesting and mouth watering read. These guys know Montréal and the food scene like the back of their hand. Whenever possible, the ingredients they use are of the highest quality and the freshest available bought from local or family-owned producers. I've eaten at both Liverpool House and Joe Beef and I have to say, the food is amazing. Both restaurants have their own unique and rustic charm and are really warm and inviting. Here is a little video of Frédéric and David talking about the history of Joe Beef, the area of Little Burgundy and a bit about the book. I love their passion in what they do.
Also in the giveaway is the book 'Bread' by Première Moisson. This bakery I love! The loaves of bread and pastries are a work of art and almost too good to eat. Their book is filled with techniques and delicious recipes and a great one to have on hand for fellow bread lovers.
So, to win! Simply share the love on Facebook, Twitter or your blog and leave a comment below pasting the link of where you have shared this competition with your friends. Using the old school method of a name drawn from a hat, the winner will be announced on the Monday that a little relish issue two is launched. This comp is open to internationally and I will be posting the little package to the winner.
