Eventually we all have to play host to visitors at home. Entertaining can be frightening and certainly stressful. There’s a new book from the television personality Ricardo Larrivée that will help us get through the business of serving meals to our guests. Ricardo: Meals for Every Occasion is a lavishly illustrated book with simple, easy-to-follow recipes that are imaginative and unpretentious. Whether we’re cooking to impress, or hosting pals over, or making breakfast for overnight guests, there’s much in this book to consume. And perhaps, as the author hopes, you’ll want to have guests more often. Ricardo Larrivée is the popular host of Ricardo on Radio-Canada, which is very popular in Quebec and beyond. For English-speaking viewers he’s on Food Network Canada with an equally popular program, Ricardo and Friends. He’s often described as ‘Quebec’s answer to Jamie Oliver.’ This is his second book in English, and has already been successful in French, selling over 50,000 copies. The book is published by Whitecap. In Toronto this day, please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Ricardo Larrivée; Bon matin, Monsieur Larrivée.
