joebeefcookbook-150.jpgCulinary historian Ian Mosby takes a look at the cookbook from Montreal restaurant Joe Beef, which is maybe not entirely accurate as it pertains to the real life person Joe Beef, but still: "Perhaps tall tales and half-histories are essential to the act of imagining and inventing culinary traditions across time and space.

This imagined Montreal ... looks to me like a vibrant, living cuisine – grounded in Montreal’s past – and looking confidently to the future." [Active History]
