Book Description

Oct. 15 2012

This evocative hardcover volume will be an essential gift for every Canadian
foodie this holiday season!

What is Canadian cuisine? With our country's multicultural population and relatively young age (at 145, Canada's barely hit puberty) it's easy to think that we don't have a cohesive culinary landscape tying Canadians together. Veteran Canadian foodies Rose Murray and Elizabeth Baird are out to change that thinking. Their new book Canada's Favourite Recipes reveals just how distinctive our food is and how our people, climate and land influence it.

Rose and Elizabeth have amassed 160 recipes that represent Canada's rich culture and history. Many of the recipes are contributed by great Canadian cooks, chefs and personalities, including food writer Julian Armstrong, professional home economist Emily Richards and author Wayson Choy.

Rediscover the delights of Canadian cuisine with recipes such as:
Cod and Potato Fritters with Spicy Lemon Mayonnaise
Quebec Tourtière
Peameal Bacon Roast
Braised Lamb Stew with Rosemary Dumplings
Maple Carrot Cake with Maple-Butter Icing

An engaging book of taste memories, whose recipes speak clearly about the emotional connection between people and food. I feel I can trust this wonderful collection, and that that all of these carefully curated recipes are authentic and delicious. This is a timely and warm anthology of Canadian chestnuts that I'm sure is destined to become a classic and a staple on kitchen bookshelves across the land.
—Jamie Kennedy, chef, owner and operator of Gilead Café and Jamie Kennedy Kitchens

About the Author

Rose Murray has been a key player in the Canadian food scene for almost three decades. Through authoring 10 cookbooks, writing for a host of magazines and newspapers, teaching cuisine at various colleges and cooking schools, and making many television and radio appearances, Rose has helped shape Canada?s culinary landscape since 1979. Growing up on a self-sustaining mixed farm near Collingwood, Ontario, Rose learned the art of growing your own food, as well as cooking and preserving it, at a very young age. It is no wonder that she has come to be considered a national expert on the agricultural traditions that go into our food. After finishing a degree in English from Trinity College at the University of Toronto, Rose went on to teach high school English. Over the years, food started to become a serious interest for Rose again, which led her to more formal food studies in Paris at renowned cooking schools such as Cordon Bleu, La Varenne and Ecole de Gastronomie Francaise Ritze-Escoffier. Rose also took classes in Costa Rica, Hong Kong and Thailand further developing her knowledge and understanding of international food and culture. Rose has two grown children and two grandchildren and now lives in Cambridge, Ontario with her husband Kent and dog Maggie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! And wow! Nov. 24 2012
I bought this book last week and did the Quebec Tourtiere. Wow! Better than my mom's! And I did the Sugar Pie. Wow, what a delight! As Elizabeth Baird is my favourite Canadian cookbook author, I own many of her books. She has never disappointed me. (All her recipes have been tested, and tested again. Some of her recipes are home comfort and others are full of new flavours.)

The "Canada's, Favourite Recipes" is a keeper, like all her other books. Nobody is going to borrow this book from me!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected June 26 2014

I have been a reader of Canadian Living Magazine for many years. I enjoy the magazine and have several cookbooks. This one, however, is just a recap of everything. It has the same recipes in it that I already have and I find them boring. I was hoping for some excitement but you won't find it in this particular book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rose and Elizabeth never let me down Feb. 21 2014
By Cathy K
I have a reputation as a really good cook, but it's mostly down to Rose Murray. Whenever I am stymied, I consult one of my five Rose Murray cookbooks – or look for her in my other books.

I love her down-to-earth home-cooking-only- better style. Makes me look like a genius.

Also a big Elizabeth Baird fan, so will definitely be buying copies of this book for myself and my four daughters. I see half a dozen recipes to try right away - and hooray - there's even an Edna Staebler recipe in here. What's not to love?

Thank you, ladies, for 30 years of cooking together (even if you didn’t know)!

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic book, beautifully bound Dec 3 2012

I knew I would like this book because it's from the pen and heart of Elizabeth Baird (and Rose Murray with whom I am less familiar). I was dazzled by the feel of the book, its look and the sophistication but unpretentiousness of the recipes. But I should not have been surprised. That is Elizabeth Baird.
A book for life.
