The Canadian Cook Book “was Canada's first mass-produced cookbook [that] emphasized nutrition, reflected the pre-World War I development of household science economics courses which combined arranging menus, home administration, budgeting, finance and efficiency with cooking and serving, and the postwar liberation of women through related workplace positions.” Lorne Bruce -head of archival and special collections at the University of Guelph. Produced to meet the need for a recipe book for girls learning domestic science in the new technical schools, the blue cookbook quickly became the textbook in schools nationwide.Publishing Details
