History of Canadian Cookbooks

The Culture of Cooking

Some of Today's Favourite Cooks

As this publication attests, Madame Benoit's recipes continue to be depended on throughout the country, in both French and English kitchens.

This book by Anita Stewart brings together over 200 healthy, traditional and comforting recipes. These foods from the kitchens of our mothers, grandmothers and good friends will warm hearts and restore spirits.

Since her early books from James Lorimer and Company (Classic Canadian Cooking and Apples, Peaches & Pears), Elizabeth Baird has become the cooking genius at Canadian Living and, with her staff there, has created hundreds of magazine articles, television shows and cookbooks. Few kitchens, whatever cuisine is favoured, are without at least one of her titles.

Daniel Pinard is famous for his newspaper columns and television appearances. He has a great influence over how we eat today.
