Feel the heat in the kitchen with the 3 Chefs: The Kitchen Men!

Get elbow to elbow with three of Canada's top chefs as they sauté, braise and flambé their way from soup to nuts. As featured on CityLine, Canada's longest-running lifestyle show, Michael Bonacini, Massimo Capra and Jason Parsons meet up in this beautifully illustrated cookbook to swap recipes, pair wines and have fun in the kitchen.

Readers will love the recipes, ranging from oyster bruschetta to chocolate pistachio pâté, and the camaraderie chronicled by a collection of candid photos and commentaries. 3 CHEFS is for anyone who wants both a comprehensive cookbook of haute cuisine and an entertaining introduction to these three top chefs. This is an essential book for modern, Canadian chefs seeking to impress their guests.

With clear instruction and tempting illustrations, any chef will value this cornucopia of quality recipes. Casual gourmets will rejoice at this collection that spans from Jason Parson's ultimate burger to classic French-Canadian tourtière. Fans of these celebrity chefs, familiar with them as television personalities, will enjoy reading about Massimo's family farm in Cremona, Italy as they ponder making his Lamb Chop Milanese for Sunday dinner. On another level, all professional chefs and home cooks will read with both about what's on the chalkboard at Jump! Mistura, and the 3 Chefs' other top Canadian restaurants. In 3 CHEFS the stories behind how those dishes got there are just as delicious as the recipes themselves. Culinary aficionados will also appreciate the new takes on old classics. Jason Parson's innovative Eggs Benedict will spark the imagination as will his decadent original recipe for ice wine marshmallows.
