From award-winning chef and straight talker Jason Lynch comes this collection of appetizers, mains, soups, sauces, sides and desserts you can successfully make at home – without investing in expensive equipment or having to hire a sous chef. Including beautiful photography for every recipe, Straight from the Line also shares unique insight on enjoying cooking at home, dining out, and sourcing local ingredients.
"Jason calls it the way he sees it and his eyesight is better than 20/20. Great stories, great recipes and great pictures make this a must-have for any book collection." — CHEF PAUL ROGALSKI, Culinary Director/Owner, Rouge Restaurant
"The next best thing to having Jason Lynch in your kitchen is to have his recipes, though a journey to his restaurant is an experience to remember. I enjoyed one of the best meals of my life prepared by Jason and his team. We lingered over dinner and I’ve savoured the memory ever since." — AMY TROTTER HOUSTON, Travel Correspondent, WorldGuide
"What a night! The meal at Le Caveau was tremendous (Jason is one of the top chefs in all of Canada) but the wine pairings with our various courses demonstrated the purest meaning of ‘terroir’, how the foods of a region can be complemented perfectly by wines grown in that same Annapolis Valley soil. It really was a spectacular evening." — ANITA STEWART, Culinary Activist
Straight From the Line
I’m not sure if I like the reflections, or the recipes, the best. They both excel.
This is not a huge, arrogant, compendium of every recipe known that I find so intimidating.
It is a slim volume of thoughts about food, its preparation from local sources,its place in our family and social lives.
Recipes are elegant, but doable, even for an old guy who likes to play in the kitchen when his wife’s not looking. From Citrus-Crusted Scallops, through Spiced Nuts, to Edward VII’s Favourite Omelette, and more, I have enjoyed using this book for nearly a year now. And I enjoy the compliments, like any old guy…...
Straight from the Line is as approachable as I suspect Jason Lynch is in person.
