Cochon Cookbook

Au Pied de Cochon

Forget what we said earlier. Assuming you have savored the hearty menu at Montréal brasserie Au Pied de Cochon (as we have), this is the cookbook release of the season: chef Martin Picard has just published a brand new book entitled Au Pied de Cochon: The Album, a collection of 55 recipes, 50 illustrations, and more than 600 photos, plus a two-hour DVD. We haven't seen the real thing yet (just discovered it on eGullet, in fact), but we're told the cookbook has been printed in French and English versions and is available for $59.95 CAD by phone order at Bon Appetit Cookbooks, 388 Victoria Avenue, Westmount, QC H3Z 2N4 (514.369.2002).

Clean Your Cups

Efferdent_1

We were recently tipped off to a handy trick from the bloggers at Shelterrific: use denture cleansers to remove stubborn tea and coffee stains from your cups and mugs. Who knew? But, we tried it, and, amazingly, they do work. So, next time you're visiting grandpa, steal a few tablets from the medicine cabinet, or invest in a supply of your own ($6.69 for a box of Efferdent at drugstore.com).
