Burns invited contributions from Georgia Straight cronies including Jurgen Gothe, Christina Burridge and photographer Phil Chin, plus some chefs like Rob Feenie and Umberto Menghi. “I say in the book that The Urban Picnic is like a picnic itself,” he says, “little bits contributed by friendly folks.” 1-55152-155-5
