Q&A: Chef Suzanne Barr Talks About Her New Book And Shares Three Recipes

Suzanne Barr, the chef behind beloved Toronto restaurants, Saturday Dinette and True True Diner, released her first book earlier this week. My Ackee Tree, co-authored with Suzanne Hancock, is a memoir about Barr’s life and how she found (and built) a career in the kitchen. Barr left Canada after True True Diner closed in 2020 and is now living in Miami with her husband and son, where’s she consulting on a new restaurant. We recently sat down with her to talk about her new book, her favorite food, what’s next and the sage advice she once received from Mark McEwan.
