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.

I used this cookbook over the years. It was a fantastic cookbook for beginners. My daughter made the VERY BEST BUTTER TARTS using a recipe from this book. 5 years ago it was packed up with the rest of my cookbooks and all mysteriously disappeared. I am slowly replacing all my missing COOKBOOKS. I thought this might be similar. It wasn't but
IT IS A VERY VERY GOOD COOK BOOK.
The "Canada's, Favourite Recipes" is a keeper, like all her other books. Nobody is going to borrow this book from me!
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)!
Les collaborateurs consultés, à travers tout le Canada, nous transmettent leur héritage culinaire familial et personnel, non pas des recettes de chefs et de restaurateurs de métier.
Les anecdotes et les souvenirs relatés à chaque recette rendent l'ouvrage fort sympathique.
A book for life.
