2.0 out of 5 stars A food book, but not a cookbook, 2 Mar. 2011
I personally was disappointed with this book. I was expecting insights into the concept of matching foods to produce a meal, and was looking for professional tips and tricks of the trade. Instead this book is a philosophical look at a few elements of food, and how they should be approached. One section of the book is dedicated to the perfect egg - how to define and cook the perfect hard boiled egg. Nice, but what about all the other ways to produce eggs. This' philosophy tends to repeat itself as well as you read through the chapters.


NOTHING MORE COMFORTING: Canada's Heritage Food
NOTHING MORE COMFORTING: Canada's Heritage Food
by DOROTHY DUNCAN
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed, 26 Feb. 2009
As an ex-pat I am always asked 'what is Canadian cooking'
I was hoping for something more from this book. It basically follows the pattern of
Pick a food, generally already used for thousands of years.
List where it came from and it's medicinal benifits.
Write a couple of very general recipes.

Very Anglocentric (British food). A little First Nations. Nothing French Canadian.

No real info about what the settlers prepared and ate. No mention of things like mud ovens, moose, or even the all-Canadian Poutine!

1.0 out of 5 stars From a chanter user, 26 Feb. 2009
Shipping was quite expensive, and the pitch seems a little high, but it is not really bad for a Pakistan (I believe) product.
