Mona Brun and Woodward's are an integral part of Western Canadian history. Woodward's department stores were the place to shop in British Columbia and Alberta, and the food floors were dazzling emporiums where you could sample international cuisine, pick up new recipes, and buy ingredients you couldn't find anywhere else. For 14 years, Mona Brun was the food consultant for Woodward's. During that time she appeared on television with internationally renowned chefs such as James Beard, gave demonstrations everywhere from the PNE to local community events, and taught people how to have fun when they cooked. When first published, this book sold 20,000 copies--and her fans are still as loyal as ever This new edition provides hundreds of Mona's recipes for all kinds of dishes as well as memorabilia that evokes the joys of shopping at Woodward's. With Mona's humorous anecdotes and practical tips, this is as much a cookbook as a snapshot of a time that many people look back upon fondly.
