For well over half a century the Five Roses: A Guide to Good Cooking has been Canada's most popular cookbook. Prized as a practical, down to earth recipe book, it is the day to day friend of thousands of Canadian homemakers.

The latest of Whitecap's Classic Canadian Cookbooks we have reproduced the 21st Edition with the following:

  • It contains the best recipes of the previous editions,
  • It also features guidelines for everything from baking bread and making the perfect cup of tea to roasting turkey and creating delicious pies,
  • A host of new and interesting recipes have been added,
  • Plus an exotic chapter entitled Foreign Fare highlights dishes from France, Italy, Switzerland, Scandinavia, China and Japan, and
  • Historical notes by culinary historian Elizabeth Driver have been placed throughout the book.

    Every recipe has been approved and thoroughly tested in the famous Five Roses Kitchens. We guarantee that they will work perfectly in your kitchen.

    This book has been specially designed for today's busy homemakers. The attractive new cover has a plastic finish ¬ wipes clean instantly. New, easy to read type has been used throughout, and the layout of the sections has been planned for your convenience. There are handy cross references for compatible recipes matching, for example, cakes with icings, meats with sauces. The familiar spiral binding allows the book to lie flat while in use, while the many helpful hints and instruction charts make it a joy to work with.
