About the Author

About The Ladies of the Best of Bridge : In 1975, at a weekend getaway, eight women friends had an idea: Since a consistent highlight of their decade-old bridge group was the food they prepared and shared together, perhaps they should think about writing a cookbook. This spur-of-the-moment notion was the impetus for The Best of Bridge, which went on to become one of the most successful brands in Canadian publishing. From the outset, "The Ladies of the Best of Bridge," as they like to be known, had a unconventional vision of how their business would be run. It would be a partnership of equals, a celebration of friendship and -- perhaps most of all -- it would be fun. The bank manager who approved their first loan warned them they would never stay friends. They vowed to prove him wrong. More than 30 years and three million copies later, the ladies are enjoying the last laugh. In addition to creating a phenomenally successful business, they have remained close friends with fond memories of all the good times they''ve shared. "We had a lot of fun," they say now. "And the media loved us because we were just regular mothers who showed up wearing matching aprons. Sometimes people were astonished that the recipes actually worked, which amazed us because we knew what we were doing." Not surprisingly, from time to time, life intervened to rock their idyll.

Editorial Reviews

Written by eight bridge players with excellent humor, and sprinkled throughout with many great, funny quotes, this volume is a pleasure even as a bedtime reading. The book is divided into three distinct sections: Brunch Buffets, Lunch and Dinner Buffets and Goodies. Each section is preceded with a list of content, further divided into groups of food categories to help readers choose. Having been originally targeted for Canadian readers, all measurements are also given in metrics. The recipes range from very simple to more involved but none beyond a beginner to average cook''s ability. Ingredients are readily available, instructions are brief but precise (a beginning cook may have some head scratching with some instructions). All recipes are on single or facing pages for the cook''s convenience, pages bound by sturdy wire binding. Twenty four full-page color illustrations break up the recipes, although it is unfortunate that illustrations are not referenced with the corresponding recipes. The index is good but cross-referencing is missing. This cookbook does not pretend to be a beautiful coffee table book, rather a useful and very practical book having a wide range of easy-to-follow recipes. It would serve as a well-thumbed basic cookbook for any everyday cook.
