The long-awaited cookbook from the test kitchen of Canada's largest newspaper.
More than just a collection of recipes, the Toronto Star Cookbook is a gorgeously photographed cookbook, that tells the story of the vibrant, eclectic cuisine of Ontario. Here are more than 150 recipes celebrating the province's chefs, restaurants, home cooks, farmers, food store owners and more.
The Toronto Star Cookbook is a family-friendly cookbook filled with recipes for classic comfort food like rice pudding two ways (diner-style and upscale) apple crisp (made with three varieties of apple) and grilled cheese (updated with smoked cheese and sriracha ketchup), and classic Ontario dishes (True North Flatbread, My Mom's Pan-Fried Pickerel and The Hogtown Sandwich). In reflection of Toronoto's multicultuarl food scene, it includes dishes from more than two dozen cultures, including Chinese noodles, Indian dosas, Korean rice bowls, Mexican soup, Lebanese dips, Ethiopian beans and Vietnamese subs.
Jennifer Bain, the Star's food editor and award-winning Saucy Lady columnist, personally selected and triple-tested all 150+ recipes. Most of the recipes were published in the paper since Jennifer took over the food beat in 2000, but some classics date back as far as 1975. Jennifer asked the Star's readers to nominate their favourite Star recipes of all time, and 25 of these Readers' Choice Recipes are included in the book.
