About the Author

Elizabeth Driver is an editor and writer who has spent over twenty years researching the culinary history of Canada and Britain. She is fascinated by the history of food and an avid collector of cookbooks and antique kitchenware.

After receiving an M.A. in Art History from the University of London, Elizabeth worked for a London publisher, editing a cookbook. She has written introductions and historical notes to several titles in Whitecap’s Classic Canadian Cookbook Series including The Home Cook Book, The All New Purity Cook Book, The Laura Secord Canadian Cook Book, the 1915 Five Roses Cook Book, and Five Roses: A Guide to Good Cooking. In 1989 she compiled a bibliography of British cookery books and her new work, Culinary Landmarks: A Bibliography of Canadian Cookbooks, 1825–1949 is forthcoming from the University of Toronto Press. Elizabeth has won several prestigious scholarships that have allowed her to pursue her passionate research into Canada’s culinary history. She says, “I love the way old cookbooks transport one back into the past.”

Elizabeth lives with her husband and two children in Toronto, where she is the Foodways Program Officer at Mongomery’s Inn museum. She demonstrates such historic techniques as cooking on an open hearth, returning home most days with the smell of wood smoke on her clothes.

I have been using this cook book for over 35 years.Mine only had a few pages left in it, it was very old and it was the ring book type. I had to buy another. It didn't matter the cost it was my life line.
If you are a new cook,baker, or an experienced cook or baker, or just want to make a healthy sandwich and a drink. This is the only book you will need for your library. I love the Prize Pumbkin Pie is full of luscious flavour, Lemon Meringue is the ultimate, the Butter tarts are to die for. I have had many variations of the 3 mentioned and I have had to run to the washroom on all 3. The Five Roses cookbook is by far the most superior book I have ever used. It is reliable and it is full of flavours that will be long lasting. Your company will be very impressed with all of the recipes that you may venture.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hooray! Replacement. March 28 2012
By Laurel
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I grew up pulling Mom's version of this one out of the cupboards to make pancakes for Mother's Day (among other things) when I was little. It was the old coil-bound blue-covered book from the fifties, and we used it like crazy.
This book is currently in tatters, and I was excited to find more copies online!
Sadly, not coil-bound, which makes it difficult to read recipes while fluttering around in the kitchen, but aside from that it's pretty much the same thing as the old one. The few old full-page photos are black and white instead of colour, but some sections have nearly step-by-step photographs beside the instructions (ie, making bread), which I like very much and wish more cookbooks would have.

Overall, I'm glad I found this. Picked up a copy for myself and another for my mom.

Simply the best and easiest cook book to follow and enjoy with delicious recipes. My mother had one which was very well used, I have one in the same condition and now I purshased two more copies for each of my girls (in cegep and university). We had meatloaf on the weekend from the Five Roses Cook Book and I was asked for the recipe because it was so tasty!I recommend this cook book to everyone. :)

This is my favourite cookbook. I use it all the time. I had received this book as a wedding gift some 40 years ago. And when my daughter got married my book went from my kitchen to hers. She still uses it today. So, when I seen it on your sight, I just had to order it. I would recommend this cookbook to anybody, wether there just starting out, or have been cooking for years.
