Compiled by Elizabeth Baird, food and nutrition editor for Canadian Living magazine, along with her coterie of cooks from the CL test kitchen, this comprehensive soup-to-sweets collection of thrice-tested-till-perfect recipes includes step-by-step staff favourites as well as tasty contributions from some of Canadas pre-eminent food professionals. Whether its basic Lentil Soup starring Saskatchewans lauded legume or salt-rubbed Beef Tenderloin marinated in Worcestershire and scotch, each recipe is highlighted with informative icons (Quick, Make Ahead, Budget-wise, etc.). The dishes can be both provocative (Cornish Hens with Tuscan Touches) and enlightened (even old-school Liver and Onions gets a Continental kick using sage leaves and balsamico), and the pages offer up sidebars full of advice and ideas for substitutions, variations, and presentation. (One suggestion: cut a letter or number into a piece of cardboard; then hold it over a bowl of soup while sprinkling chopped herbs through this stencil). Its a very handsome volume, though readers may wish the 25 colour photos appeared beside their respective recipes rather than bunched together in two mid-book galleries. One wishes, too, that the abbreviation for tablespoon used an uppercase t to differentiate it from that for teaspoon. These are minor cavils with a kitchen-friendly reference. The Salad chapter will have cooks utilizing everything from the needlessly out-of-fashion iceberg lettuce to sushi rice; its Dessert pages will take bakers from Panforte to Pandowdy (while teaching them how to dowdy). And as one might expect from something called The Complete Canadian Living Cookbook, theres plenty of good eating in between. --Tony Mason --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I use it so much that it's filthy with spilled sauce stains!
No pictures, but the best basic 'how to cook anything' book.
Great classic cookbook that I reach for again & again.
Great reference material & thorough instructions. Wide variety of recipes that have all been a hit.
My puppies ate (!) my original 12 year old copy, and I quickly hopped on Amazon, and received the replacement by the end of the week.

It doesn't hurt that it's a really good cookbook.
This is the cookbook my mom gave me when I moved out and it basically taught me to cook. Easy to follow delicious recipes, and lots of little extra tips that come in handy. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Svea
