Makes my head spin why a govt controlled monopoly needs to spend that kind of money advertising booze for which they are the only outlet to get it!!!. I am almost positive that whoever sets that magazine up is getting a great kick back or his brother inlaw is int he print industry!!! lol
I have a friend who works for head office LCBO and he says they make tons of money...I wonder if having no competition has anything to do with that? hmmmmm
The LCBO probably makes tons of money on booze--but the magazine is free. The magazine is available at LCBO outlets. It is not thrown into newspapers. The recipes are also available on line. This year, LCBO has also made a "purchase back issues" option available. I have copies of this from 1998. I have made many of the recipes and have found that they always work. And, the contributors stretch my mind re: combinations, etc. It is a very nice magazine--it comes out 6x per year. The Holiday issue is to die for--it is always a hot commodity at the LCBO and the LCBO often runs out of the hard copies way before Christmas.
Alix--I'll pm you the lemon eclair recipe if you can't get it. It takes about 6 weeks for all the recipes to be available online and sometimes some of the recipes don't get put up on the web site.
