Dish: Memories, Recipes and Delicious Bites (Whitecap)
Marion Kane interviewed and became pals with former Mafia cook Joe “Dogs” Iannuzzi while he was in the witness protection plan. She shared an intimate meal with screen legend Sophia Loren at a small restaurant in Toronto’s Little Italy. She visited the late Julia Child at her Victorian home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where the queen of cuisine cooked up a breakfast featuring her famous scrambled eggs. And now, in Dish, intrepid Canadian food writer Marion Kane has compiled favourite columns about these and other culinary adventures and paired them with her best recipes.
