Jonathan Cheung has been the owner and chef of Appetite for Books in Westmount, since its opening in 2005. With over twenty years of professional culinary experience, as well as operating a successful and established cookbook store in Montreal, his passion for food, sharing knowledge, and community is reflective in his work. Originally from Vancouver, Jonathan grew up in the restaurant business and, after completing culinary school, cooked at restaurants in Vancouver, Hong Kong, and Montreal.

He is the co-author of Montreal Cooks: A Tasting Menu from the City’s Leading Chefs, was a regular contributor on CityTV Montreals Breakfast Television, the current food columnist on CBC Radio Montreal “Lets Go”, and a featured judge on Food NetworksIron Chef Canada. Food and cooking may be Jonathans passion, but getting his two young children to eat their vegetables has been his greatest achievement.
