Derek Dammann is one of Canada's most extraordinary culinary artists. The creative genius behind DNA and Maison Publique restaurants in Montreal, Derek has grown steadily in stature and influence in Canadian cuisine. True North is a culinary coming-of-age story, of both a chef and a country. Through recipes and stories, it details the path of Dammann's career, from a remote resource town on Vancouver Island's east coast to the top ranks of the Montreal restaurant scene. In culinary terms, Canada grew with Dammann.

It's a beautiful book and truly does celebrate Canada and all her different types of cuisine. It's not an accessible book for many home cooks, but enjoyable to read nonetheless. The steps and ingredients for many of the recipes are many.

The Canadian James Beard? Rave review by Chris Nuttall Smith in the Globe & Mail: "one of the most exciting and original coast-to-coast Canadian cookbooks published since Canada’s centennial some 50 years ago, when a wave of them – remember Pierre and Janet Berton’s The Centennial Food Guide? – was last released."
