Catherine Parr Traill’s The Female Emigrant's Guide: Cooking with a Canadian Classic by Nathalie Cooke and Fiona Lucas (Eds.)
Keywords:Catherine Parr Traill, Canadian cuisine
Based on broadly annotated recipes published in 1855, this historical treasure trove of food sourcing and cooking has been reworked for modern readers by editors Nathalie Cooke and Fiona Lucas. These authors have been deeply immersed in Canadian culinary history for most of their careers, dedicated to making their findings both accurate and interesting. With this material, I could imagine them setting out together on a journey of discovery, much like Parr Traill and her family did when they sailed from the relative luxury of their “sylvan” Suffolk homeland in 1832 to become bush farmers in Duoro Township north of the hamlet of Peterborough. Our intrepid editors ended up with a Canadian culinary treatise that every curious home cook or chef should read.
