Imagine being transported across Canada from delicious restaurant to delicious restaurant, all top-ranked and respected for their fresh gourmet fare. Delicious Small Dishes features small dishes from twenty of these restaurants that can be created in the home for a special dinner party or simply for the love of great food. The book's format makes it possible to follow the chef's suggested menu from a single restaurant, or to mix it up and create a personal tasting menu using fresh seasonal ingredients. There are new versions of classic dishes, regional specialites, lavish dishes, and simpler tasters. The recipes have been tested and adapted so they can easily be recreated by the home chef.
