Oh how sad. James Barber died. Article here.
I used to watch his cooking show the Urban Peasant on CBC and I learned more from him about cooking than any cookbook.

    I loved him too!
    I really related to his attitude of “If you don’t have it…don’t use it!”
    He was so down to earth in the kitchen.

    Yes, I learned so much from the Urban Peasant. I loved it and I cook a lot like him now, not using recipes, just throwing together what I have and what looks fresh and yummy.

    Yes he was an inspiration

    All his cooking was easy to do and there was no elitism – anyone could do it and produce really tasty meals

    I still think his idea of a rasp from Lee Valley tools instead of a grater was brilliant
