You may have dozens of cookbooks in your kitchen library, but when it comes to bread and pastry recipes, you`ll only ever need one. This wonderful book enjoyed extraordinary success upon its first publication in 1913, and by 1915 had found a home in 650,000 Canadian kitchens` which at the time was almost half of all homes in Canada. Elizabeth Baird, food director at Canadian Living magazine, offers this re-printing of the delightfully handy Five Roses Cook Book, featuring tried and true recipes for everything from breakfast griddle cakes to Homesteader`s bread and ginger snaps.
