Justin Joyce and Stephan MacIntyre have written Burgoo: Food for Comfort (Figure 1 2013). It reached the top of the BC Bestseller List in January of 2014.

According to promotional materials: "In the American South, Burgoo is a thick savoury stew made with local meats and seasonal vegetables. In Vancouver, Burgoo means nourishing comfort food served from lively neighbourhood bistros. When Burgoo Bistro first opened in 2001, the menu featured hearty bowl foods served in a casual, welcoming atmosphere. Today, those original soups and stews share pride of place with signature starters, salads, sandwiches and desserts, many designed for sharing. In this book the authors bring their classic recipes to the page for the first time. From the popular Beef Bourguignon to the addictive Gooey Cheese Grillers, the garlicky Caesar Salad to the traditional French Onion Soup, these dishes span the globe. Whether you’re a long-time guest of one of their bistros or a home cook looking for new, easy-to-make everyday dishes, these delicious family favourites will fit the bill."
