About the BookThis is a collection of favourite Canadian recipes from Bannock to Tourtiere, culled from over 50 years of cookbooks bought, recipes gifted and favourites collected. Based on a home cook's experience, 102 recipes covering Appetizers, Desserts, Mostly Meatless and everything in between.
The Canadians are famously unassuming, and this Canadian home cook wants you to know this book will not make you slimmer, prettier or younger. This book will bring you what every cook wants: a few good recipes, the favourite recipes, the keepers. Lorraine McFadden has spent more than 50 years, cooking, collecting recipes and buying cookbooks, and these are the recipes she wants all in one place, before they are lost. Before that, she was an infant.
Lorraine McFadden is not a chef, restaurant owner or blogger. She's actually a Canadian Neuropsychologist who loves to cook in what passes for spare time. The recipes include Canadian favourites, such as Flapper Pie and the cookies that Tommy Douglas' wife made for him (hint: he was the creator of Canadian Health Care). There are her mother's pies, her grandmother's cookies, that staple of native Canadians and settlers, Bannock, and Quebec Tourtiere made with buffalo. In another Canadian tradition, the book price works out to a little over ten cents Canadian for each recipe, which is an amazing deal.
