Product Description

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.

Heh.
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.

I have worn out my copy and, sadly, it is not available at the moment but it is the best book for biscuits and pancakes. Love this book

While it took longer than I was told, I ordered with enough time before christmas, I was still able to give as the gift it was intended to be. The cover has slight imperfection on the front, but considering the cookbook isn't actuaLly available otherwise...it's something I can live with and think it still looks ok.

Customer service was helpful, but I did have to request an answer that wasn't "canned or pre- scripted" when it came to why it was that my order was late and when it would actually be arriving. It was a good two weeks later than the cookbook I ordred through amazon on the same day. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and would likely order again, if I wasn't in a big panic for the item.

Just like the original version of so many years ago, just like Granma`s and Mom`s favourite cookbook. All the recipes from our childhood revised with care, also metric and imperial measures included . When I discovered the book I bought a few to give to my son and daughter ,also to my niece and nephew. This is to keep memory of my parents cooking recipes alive in the next generation. These cookbooks are part of our Canadian past our heritage from years gone by . Elisabeth Driver has done justice in keeping these books in print, almost every second household had at least one of these cookbooks. They were given away from generation to generation and past down to the next one. They are great recipes to try out and enjoy with family and friend. I recommend this book to everyone for their household.

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. :)

Needed a new copy to replace my old ragged one I had for over 25 years! Down to earth, basic, good recipes, for anybody starting to cook or the seasoned 'chef'.

It is a small handbook. I was expecting a larger book. And inside the front cover it spoke about how the book was on a coil binding so it would lay flat....NOT! It will certainly never lay flat. Not too practical for a cook. This is for a Birthday gift. My friend has always wanted to replace her Mother's Five Roses book and this is not quite what I was expecting. Nothing in the write up mentioned it was a small version of the original.
