Book Description

Nov. 10 2005

"The most intelligent radio [program] in the country."
- The Globe and Mail

Since its launch in 1985 DiscDrive has become a Canadian institution, with hundreds of thousands of loyal listeners from coast to coast (and even more listening daily across the northern U.S.).

From early on, food became an important ingredient in the DiscDrive mix: after all, Jurgen Gothe was already an award-winning food and wine journalist. Whether improvised on the spot, or based on what Gothe cooked that weekend, his food preparation ideas -- from the ridiculously simple to the ridiculously elaborate -- formed part of the afternoon delights. Listeners clamored for his recipes and the program's website posted selected ones.

In honor of the radio show's upcoming 20th anniversary, Gothe's inventive recipes have been assembled into one delicious volume: DiscCookery.

DiscCookery has more than 120 recipes, most of them from Gothe's own kitchen and some solicited from DiscDrive listeners. Each recipe is not only paired with an appropriate wine but also a suitable music selection.

Selections focus on:

  • Soups and Salads
  • Drinks
  • Pasta, Fish and Seafood
  • Stews
  • Chicken and Duck
  • Meat
  • Snacks and Sides
  • Desserts
  • Extravaganzas (which includes Gothe's True North Chili made with musk ox, wild boar and caribou).

DiscCookery even includes Gothe's legendary Dinner and Ride Home for Cinderella: a stew of beef, peaches, corn, and vegetables, cooked and served in a pumpkin.

First Sentence
The first recipe in this book is also the newest in my kitchen, born out of serendipity one day when I was having a little weekend wind-down on Mayne Island and found all the ingredients for this at the market, where it's not always easy to get fresh prawns, fresh snap peas and fine Shanti-McDougall-grown garlic at the same time. Read the first page
