UPDATE - I have spent my time with Matty Matheson's glorious cookbook, and here are my thoughts:
I really enjoyed the layout of the book; the first half shares family recipes from his grandparents, parents, and inlaws, and the second shares recipes from his professional career. Every chapter is "narrated" in Matheson's characteristic irreverent style.
On a related note, I would say the recipes in the first half are much more do-able for the average cook, because they're actual home-cooked meals. I made the pot roast, and it was incredible - 10/10 would cook again. The second half is more like foodie porn, with behind-the-scenes stories from well-known Toronto restaurants and stunning but very labour-intensive recipes.
This cookbook is a love song for the Maritimes and genuinely entertaining, even if you only daydream about the latter half.
I can't wait to gobble up Matty Matheson's cookbook - his Viceland cooking show, "It's Suppertime!", delights me to no end. If you haven't experienced this beautiful weirdo yet, hop over to Youtube and enjoy. I'm sure his cookbook will radiate humour and positivity, just like Matty.
