About Bon appétit!

This website is based on the exhibition Bon appétit! A Celebration of Canadian Cookbooks, which was curated by Carol Martin, designed by Miriam Bloom and hosted at Library and Archives Canada from May 2004 through February 2005.

The Bon appétit! Web exhibition was produced by the Web Content and Services Division, Library and Archives Canada, and was made possible thanks to the expertise, commitment and enthusiasm of numerous contributors throughout Library and Archives Canada. The guidance and industry of the following were integral to this project:

  • Carol Martin, Curator
  • Plus Four Creative, Web Design
  • Carol White, Education Consultant

Special thanks are extended to Library and Archives Canada Web Technology Services, and to Gunnar Van Vliet, Nancy Fay, Jean-Pierre Lemasson, Elizabeth Driver and Anita Stewart.

We gratefully acknowledge the contribution of the Department of Canadian Heritage, whose financial assistance through Canadian Culture Online (CCO) made this work possible.
