History of Canadian Cookbooks

The Culture of Cooking

Some of Today's Favourite Cooks


Ottawa hostess and food columnist Gay Cook's latest book leads beginning cooks through the equipping of a kitchen, including what to consider when choosing knives, pots and ovenware. The recipes take them from the most basic to some of the most exciting new ideas in cooking.

Somehow, in spite of all the cookbooks at her and our disposal, Rose Murray manages to tease the senses with something new for every season.

Bonnie Stern is one of Canada's best-known cooking experts, recognized from her cooking school, her magazine articles, her broadcasts on radio and TV, and her books. This book, published as a fundraiser for Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, includes a section of recipes for children, as well as such specialties as Stern's famous rice pudding.
