Inspired by the cookbooks of the past and family recipe collections, Elizabeth Baird's Classic Canadian Cooking has itself become a classic. Her 300 recipes embody the experience of generations of Canadian cooks and profit from the possibilities offered by native produce.
Relying on fresh ingredients abundant in Canada, this book takes its cue from the seasons, with menus for meals and for special occasions. Enjoy Open-Faced Nasturtium Sandwiches, Baked Peameal Bacon, Grilled Steaks with Oyster Stuffing, Pan-Fried Minted Brook Trout, Baked Apples with Rum and Cider Sauce, Lumber Camp Apple Pie, and dozens of other dishes drawn from Canada's many culinary traditions.
Exploring Canada's cookery can be as exciting and delicious as discovering the possibilities of French, Italian or Chinese cuisine. Elizabeth Baird's Classic Canadian Cooking is a splendid compendium of this nation's diverse foodways.
