About 15 years ago, Gary Corcoran got a phone call from his long-time friends Wally and Kevin and his wife Dale, who were visiting London, England. Kevin said they had rented a beautiful flat that not only had a great kitchen, but was next door to Harrods, home of the world-famous food hall. "How about coming over and cooking a nice dinner with us?" Kevin joked.

That was all the invitation Gary needed. He bought a plane ticket from Newfoundland to London that afternoon, and before you knew it, he was off to shop at Harrods. That's where he got the inspiration for one of the recipes in his book: shrimp wrapped in prosciutto with Dijon mustard and sautéed in garlic butter.

Cookbooks hold a place of honour in the Corcoran household, and Gary has scribbled over many of them with notes and ideas on how he could improve or change each dish. He has become known for creating new dishes for family gatherings or for the many charity dinners he has cooked for over the past 10 years.

Since he was diagnosed with ALS, he has worked at transforming his personal notebooks and cookbook scribbles into proper recipes for others to enjoy. This cookbook includes Gary's take on traditional recipes from home, recipes inspired by dishes he enjoyed while away, and those he just invented on the spot.

Gary is donating 100% of the proceeds from sales of this cookbook to charity: half to ALS research at Sunnybrook Hospital to find a cure for sporadic ALS and half to his Stokers Group of the St. John's Rotary Club.

About the Author

A native Newfoundlander, Gary grew up around the bay in Riverhead, St. Mary's Bay, but spent his adulthood working in St. John's. He and his wife Gayle currently live in Paradise, NL with their beloved dog, Harry.

Gary's interest in food and cooking started at an early age, and over time it grew to become a lifelong passion that he is proud to see in his sons Colin and Christopher, who have both become great cooks in their own right.

Gary uses his love of food to connect with friends, bring crowds together and as a way to support charities across the Island. Gary finds inspiration everywhere, in his own kitchen and in his many travels around the world. A true foodie, Gary seems to find himself in the kitchen wherever he goes. He's found himself behind the stove at Charlie Trotter's restaurant in Chicago, in the kitchen with Jeremy Charles at Raymond's Restaurant, and helping some Newfoundland chefs at the James Beard House in New York City. He was even invited by the Royal Canadian Navy's Assistant Naval Attaché Gary Reddy to cook for the Assistant Naval Attachés Group in Washington D.C.-not once, but twice.

When Gary was diagnosed with ALS, his focus turned to writing this cookbook, which is the culmination of almost 40 years of reading, learning, experimenting and being creative, with recipes from home and away.
