Here's a recipe for success: mix more than 60 Canadian writers with the west coast's most prestigious literary festival, add illustrations from a Governor General's Award winning artist and an introduction from the country's favorite broadcaster. The result: 130 recipes where these famous cooks will thrill your tastebuds as much as their work stimulates the mind.Much more than a cookbook, The Great Canadian Literary Cookbook offers unexpected glimpses into the private lives - and personal tastes - of Canada's literati . Pierre Berton's three page recipe for clam chowder includes a dialogue and a murder. Judy Gill augments her culinary contribution with a "Magic Formula for Deep Serenity," Patrick Lane offers the "best quick chicken dish ever" (scotch whisky is a major ingredient) and Christie Harris reminds us that when cooks are at their wits' ends, they can always explore the frontier of "Creative Blobs."Also on board are Sharon Butala, Edith Iglauer, W.P. Kinsella, Mary Meigs, Susan Musgrave, Knowlton Nash, Ben Wicks, Carol Shields and many others who are better known for their work with a keyboard than a Cuisinart, as well as acknowledged pros such as Susan Mendalson, Jean Pare and Umberto Menghi.Distributed by Harbour Publishing in support of the Festival of the Written Arts, all proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Sechelt Festival so it can continue its marvelous tradition of success.
