"Canada's first Iron Chef America Champion shares the best of his family-friendly -- and award-winning -- casual meals."

Rob Feenie has been crafting simple yet special recipes throughout his celebrated career. Now, the longtime leader in the casual fine dining movement reveals his favourite recipes for the best meals in life: everyday cooking with family and friends.

Feenie first wowed diners with his innovative tasting menus at the inventive Lumiere restaurant in Vancouver. Today, he creates delicious family-style recipes for Cactus Club restaurants -- every day, thousands of people of all ages enjoy his satisfying signature dishes.

"Rob Feenie's Casual Classics" brings together the best of these innovative and approachable meals. From such fundamental recipes as roasted tomato sauce and juicy poached chicken to globally inspired dishes like barbecued duck spring rolls, quinoa jambalaya and braised osso buco, these are real-life recipes -- modern classics that are adaptable to budgets, dietary restrictions and busy schedules.

Every recipe has been tested in Feenie's home kitchen in meals with friends and family, and approved by his own three kids, ages 3, 6 and 7. The result is a beautifully illustrated and inspirational compendium of family classics that is sure to become a staple in any home chef's library.
