An inspiring and indispensable cooking reference, the only one of its kind created especially for Canadians, with over 150 fully tested new recipes, 80 cooking lessons, and more than 600 full-colour photographs.

This is your special invitation to enter the very heart of Canadian cooking -- the Canadian  Living Test Kitchen. For almost a quarter of a century, Canadian Living magazine has been at the forefront of healthy home cooking, creating in its test kitchen, a dazzling array of versatile and easy-to-prepare recipes for all occasions.

Canadian Living Cooks Step-by-Step is the culmination of those years: a one-of-a-kind cookbook, one hundred per cent developed, tested and perfected in the Canadian Living Test Kitchen. Featuring gorgeous full-colour photography on every spread, it introduces a world of flavours, techniques, methods and ingredients, some familiar and some new. Canadian Living Cooks Step-by-Step is also an invaluable reference, with a selection of fabulous new recipes, fully illustrated cooking lessons, ideas for entertaining, nutritional tips with an analysis for  every recipe, menu plans, short-cuts, charts, substitution boxes, a glossary and scores of tips.

The recipes are diverse and flavourful. For starters, try savoury Mushroom Red Pepper Pleated Puffs or Great Gazpacho; for a main course, Smoky Tex Mex Ribs or Crown Roast of Pork, Classic Roast Chicken or Phyllo Wrapped Salmon and Rice, or for a more exotic taste, Coconut Curry Shrimp with Rice or Dinner Party Paella. If pastas and grains are your preference, there is an outstanding selection of pastas and risottos including Many-Mushroom Manicotti and Easy Garden Risotto. Last but far from least, there is a spectacular array of delicious desserts featuring everything from Tarte Tatin to Phyllo Fruit Cups with Orange White Chocolate Cream, and from Frozen Fruit Yogurts to Chocolate Truffles.

Each of the 80 cooking lessons is illus-      trated with carefully selected step-by-step photographs, invaluable for novice cooks, but useful too for experienced cooks who will delight in having difficult techniques demystified. Master the art of rolling sushi, piping choux pastry, kneading  bread and folding phyllo. Find out the difference, at last, between grilling and broiling, braising and poaching. Discover how to roast the perfect chicken, and how to make Easy Pita, Traditional Challah or perfect Cinnamon Buns.  

A new Canadian Living book is always a delight, and this one is no exception.
