Passion For Food Equals Suzanne Goin

I was so fortunate to be able to attend a great event with fabulous chef, Suzanne Goin.

Suzanne Goin talks with Christine Couvelier about passion for foodShe was in Vancouver, BC for her only Canadian stop on a book tour to promote her new cookbook, “The A.O.C. Cookbook”.

For so long, I have loved her food, her restaurants, her cookbooks, & the way she shares her flavours. Her first cookbook, “Sunday Suppers at Lucques”, is a much loved book in my culinary library. Now, we can all dive into this new book.

A.O.C. Restaurant in Los Angeles is a destination to sit back and feel welcome as you graze through the many small plates and shared style dishes. The A.O.C. Cookbooks translates those tastes into main course recipes we can make at home = perfect! Every mouthful of the dinner was amazing.

As you read through the stories and recipes in the book, it feels like Suzanne is standing in the kitchen with you. This award-winning chef has once again written a book that is sure to be at the heart of many wonderful dinner parties.

Last night I made her recipe for lamb paillards with risotto carbonara, english peas, and chanterelles. Ahhhhh!

If you are travelling to Los Angeles, be sure to stop by one of Suzanne’s many successful restaurants and treat yourself to a dining experience you will remember for a lifetime.
