Canadian cuisine

Hello all,

My brother has been a chef for a couple of years now and is planning on working his way across Canada soon. It's also his birthday soon so I want to buy him a Canadian cook book so he can familiarise himself with any national and popular dishes before he goes.

The only ones I've found are these two which I like the look of but they are a little out of my price range.

ahttp://www.amazon.co.uk/Kate-Aitkens-Canadian-Classic-Cookbook/dp/1552855910

Laura Secord Canadian Cook Book Classic Canadian Cookbook: Amazon.co.uk: Laura Secord: Books

Can anyone reccommend any cheaper ones?

Thank you, in advance!

The Best of Bridge

They don't get much more Canadian than these ladies. And the recipes are fabulous.

Any of the Canadian Living Cookbooks are also very good (although I do like The Best of Bridge series). There is the Company's Coming series as well.

Alix and CW have mentioned the best of Canada in Cookbooks and they are all reasonably priced.

There are tons of great Canadian cookbooks--regional specialty cookbooks would give him an insight into the regional specialties. I have several from Saskatawan that have great recipes for "foods like grandma made," a couple from BC, a great one from NFLD, and lots of church cookbooks. It depends on if he wants to cook "haute cuisine" or learn about regional specialties.

he's gonna need to learn the meaning of certain expressions like headman, 5 hole, slew foot, katie bar the door, rubber pill, and top shelf. if he gets hurt, tell him to tape an aspirin to it and get back out there.

hth.

I'm going to take a wild guess that those are hockey terms?
