When it comes to food, Barry Lazar is Montreal's Lewis without the Clark. Our Champlain; our Lasalle. An intrepid adventurer of all things culinary. For decades he has introduced us to the foods and cultures of the world he has found in the neighbourhoods and strip malls of Montreal. For those who mourned the long-out-of-print Guide to Ethnic Montreal that Barry did [with Tamsin Douglas] ten years ago, welcome to Barry Lazar's Taste of Montreal. Barry Lazar shares his explorations and discoveries with us. If it is a spice, flavouring, or food we are not familiar with, he describes what it tastes like, how it is used or eaten and its origins. More importantly he tells us where to find it.
