My friend and former Gazette colleague Susan Semanak has just released a book, Market Chronicles: Stories and Recipes from Montreal's Jean Talon Market. It is a beautifully written and photographed love letter to North America's largest open-air market. Semenak is a gifted writer and has serious chops as a cook. She's also as nice a person as you could ever hope to meet.
Here's a Gazette video of Susan walking through and talking about the market. Go grab a copy in English ou en francais for $40. You won't regret it.
