One wife, two kids, one mortgage, lifelong food obsessive, recipe blogger, and food photographer: that’s how Rock Recipes creator BARRY C. PARSONS describes himself on his popular food blog, RockRecipes.com. Called “one of the best food blogs in Canada” by the National Post, Rock Recipes boasts more than half a million followers at home and in the US. His first book, Rock Recipes: The Best Food from my Newfoundland Kitchen (2014), was hugely successful selling over 10,000 copies within months of its release and Rock Recipes 2 (2015), is an unwavering follow-up on the brink of the same sales target. Parsons lives in St. John’s, NL.
"In his introduction, Parsons acknowledges his lack of culinary training – and even equipment – as he tries to set home cooks at ease. But the real comfort for readers comes in the recipes themselves: clear, packed with useful tips, all delivered in a tone that liberates rather than intimidates.”
