Montreal Chef Martin Picard visits Books to Cooks to fete his new book, Sugar Shack, on Thursday, March 29 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The traditional Quebecois cabane a sucre or sugar shack has been turned on its ear (and no doubt it's a pig's ear) by Chef Martin Picard. Touted for his bold, decadent nose-to-tail cuisine featured at his Montreal restaurant Au Pied de Cochon, his new book, Sugar Shack celebrates the rustic traditional foods of maple sugar shacks with a nod to tradition and twists and additions that only Chef Picard can imagine. Join us for a sugaring off party and meet Chef Picard over Sugar Shack snacks and good cheer. Tickets to this reception are $85.00 and include a signed copy of Sugar Shack.
