The Maple Leaf Canadian Recipe Book - Rare 1930s Canada Cooking Booklet
Wishing you a good appetite for all the good things this book has in store for you. Kathleen Bowker
Published in 1930, this very rare Canadian recipe booklet was intended for the British home cook as a way of promoting the fine products of the British Empire - Canadian style. Containing 72 pages chock-full of fascinating recipes featuring an array of food products native to the Great White North, this cooking booklet is introduced by the Minister of Trade and Commerce for Canada and contains all the pride and appreciation of product that can come out of this beautiful and bountiful country.
Apples , canned fish, maple syrup, and an array of baked goods are the foundation of this cooking booklet. Colorful ads augment the recipes, a confident narrative weaves its way proudly around each of the recipe sections and informational fun facts pack a lot of interest into this slim paperback.
We love it best for its engaging recipe names...Rainy River Cocktail, Peachland Shortcakes, Yamaska Batter Pudding, Lake Erie Layer Cake, Wetaskiwin Walnut Salad, Canadian Maple Sugar Omelettes, Prince Albert Potato Cakes, Athabaska Cookies, Crimson Canadian Apple Jelly... just to name a few. Covering all meals of the day from breakfast to after-dinner drinks and dessert, there is something for everybody including a facial cream recipe provided by Miss Canada herself.
A delight for the maple lover in your life, this is a unique regional cookbook that features not only whole food recipes but also poetry, cooking techniques and tips, and specific buying, storing and harvesting information in regards to some of Canada's most famous food exports.
