La Prunelle [2012]

Natives “bring out-of-town guests” to this “suitably” midpriced Plateau BYO for a “real Montréal” experience of “refined” classic French dishes influenced by Québécois peasant tradition; a “nice, accommodating staff” works the “warm”, “cosy” space, so it has all the makings for a “lovely” meal.

The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook

Asian grandmothers are the keepers of the cultural and culinary flame. Their mastery of delicious home-cooked dishes and comfort food makes them the ideal source for this cookbook.
Pat Tanumihardja has assembled 130 tantalizing dishes, from real Chinese fried rice to the classic Filipino chicken adobo to the ultimate Japanese comfort dish, oyako donburi. This is hearty food, brightly flavored, equally good to look at and eat. Flavors range from soy and ginger to hot chiles, fragrant curries, and tart vinegars...

The American Housewife [2009]

A passage from the book... The writer does not deem any apology necessary for adding another to the long list of gastronomic works, provided she has accomplished the desirable object of producing a Cook Book which shall commend itself to all persons of true taste--that is to say, those whose taste has not been vitiated by a mode of cooking contrary to her own.

Great book for any cook's collection, recipes galore! From sweetmeats to calf heads... Back to the pure basics of cooking American classics.

The Best Little Marinades Cookbook [2000]

The Best Little Marinade Cook Book - Marvelous marinades, rubs, and sprinkles. All the flavor you add to food before you grill it. However - many of the wonderful marinades do double duty as vinaigrettes, too. One of our favorites is the Cranberry Vinaigrette - a must try! This is a small but mighty gift-size cookbook. Almost 100 recipes. Perfect to pair with a homemade sauce or rub.

Chez Roger [2012]

Forever in pursuit of the perfect Poutine, I heard that this small cantine in Farnham, Quebec had something special to offer in the way of fries, cheese and gravy... IMO looked amazing, but lacked in cheese and salt. The sauce can make or break perfection, this falling way short.
