New Year, New Book Project!
On Monday, I'll be launching a project I've been looking forward to doing for a long time - A Canadian cookbook!
Not just any Canadian cookbook, mind you - it's a Canadian cookbook that could only be done by a Canadian who lives "away."
Necessity may be the mother of invention, but desperation is its father... and any expat Canadian knows that - while there are plenty of recipes out there for butter tarts and tourtiere - there are many foods that we just can't get in other countries.
"More Than Poutine" will have all of my traditional Canadian recipes that all Canadian cookbooks need... but will also have homemade versions of many of the sauces, condiments, snack foods, etc that we were so used to buying, back home.
Not just for Canadian expats, this cookbook will be great for:
- Canadians still in Canada who want homemade foods, avoiding a lot of the additives in retail foods.
- Non-Canadians who want to expand their culinary horizon. Canadian food is about SO much more than poutine!
- Those who are gluten-free. Any recipe in the book that is not inherently gluten free will include ingredients and instructions for making an appropriate GF version, where possible (most - if not all - of the recipes should be possible)
- Those who love a Canadian, and want to surprise them with yummy goodies... or a book!
2017 is Canada's 150th birthday, so it seemed like the right time to do this!
The Kickstarter will go live first thing next Monday (Jan 16) morning, and I'll send an update at that time, with a link. I'm really excited about this project, and would love your support... either as backers, by sending the link to friends who would be interested, or both.
That's all for now. Hope you all had a wonderful - and tasty! - holiday season, and have started the new year out on a good foot!
