Viva Chez Piggy!

Located in the heart of Kingston, Ontario's historic downtown, the whimsically named Chez Piggy is the culinary offspring of Rose Richardson and Zal Yanovsky.

In The Chez Piggy Cookbook, Rose and Zal share hundreds of restaurant favorites that have inspired loyalty among devoted diners from both near and far. For anyone who has ever delighted in a sizzling skillet of Gamgas al Ajillo while quaffing an ice-cold draft in Chez Piggy's sun-dappled courtyard or sipped an eggnog in the comfort of the cozy bar on a blustery winter's night, this cookbook's for you. And if you can't make the journey in person, treat yourself to the rich breadth of these offerings in your own home.

Meet the Author

The Chez Piggy Cookbook is just one of the many legacies of the enduring partnership between Zalman Yanovsky and Rose Richardson, two extraordinary people who created an oasis of lively comfort -- and so much more -- in the heart of a small university town they called home.

Famously different in temperament and personal style, Zal and Rose effortlessly shared the qualities they regarded as essential to living the good life: joie de vivre, creativity, generosity, kindness, loyalty, a sense of social justice and a work ethic that wouldn't quit. For more than a quarter of a century, in big ways and small, they helped make Kingston, Ontario, a better place to live.

They are greatly missed by all who were lucky enough to know them, but that was just another of their gifts: You felt luck to have known them. Zal's exuberant spirit and Rose's gentle wisdom live on in their friends and customers, in the social programs they sponsored and in the thriving businesses they left in the capable hands of their daughter, Zoe Yanovsky.
