Formac Publishing Company has just released a 2015 version of my vegetable cookbook that was first published in 1983. Rose Murray’s A-Z Cookbook contains all the important information that the earlier book gave…history of each vegetable, how to choose it, how to store it, how to cook it, how to preserve it…but contains much more, and everything is updated. All the vegetables are still those grown in Canada, but there are some new vegetables now grown here.
A few of the 1983 recipes have been removed because they are no longer relevant, and in their place are one hundred new recipes that reflect the ethnic growth of Canada. The A to Z format is still there with a clean design and beautiful illustrations to help you find a vegetable recipe quickly. It will probably become the only vegetable cookbook you will ever need.
Robert Rose has just reprinted two of my titles: 125 Best Chicken Recipes and 125 Best Casseroles and One-Pot Meals. Look for new covers and new pictures as well.
Canada’s Favourite Recipes (Whitecap, 2012)
This beautiful hard cover book showcases the great range of food this country has to offer in recipes too good to forget. Full of beautiful photos of Canada, it highlights not only well-tested favourite recipes, but is also a celebration of Canadian cooks and their “taste memories”. Legendary writers Rose Murray and Elizabeth Baird have travelled the country seeking out more than 160 quintessentially Canadian dishes that show our culinary heritage. It’s dedicated to “cooks across Canada who keep the flames of home-cooking alive and welcome family and friends to share their best-loved dishes”.
Canada’s Favourite Recipes won gold in the national Taste Canada Food Writing Awards 2013.
