The Home Cook Book of 1877 was Canada`s first fund-raising cookbook, the one that inspired an enduring tradition of community cookbooks. The fourth title in the Classic Canadian Cookbook Series celebrates the 125th anniversary of this nineteenth-century best-seller, which sold more than 100,000 copies. The tried, tested, and proven recipes run the gamut from oysters and omelettes to Lemon Pie, Strawberry Shortcake, and Champagne Cup. An introduction by culinary historian Elizabeth Driver tells the intriguing story behind this landmark cookbook, compiled by the ladies of Toronto and other Canadian cities and towns, for the benefit of the Hospital for Sick Children.
