Kate Aitken's Canadian Cook Book
From the 1930s to the 1950s, Kate Aitken was a role model for millions of Canadian women who listened to her national radio show, clipped her recipes from the Montreal Standard , where she was Women`s Editor, and purchased her books and pamphlets on everything from cooking and childcare to travel and etiquette. Kate Aitken`s Canadian Cook Book was first published in 1945 and became an instant bestseller. In Kate`s own words, the book is " a handy, inexpensive guide to healthful daily living. " Along with delicious recipes for appetizers, baked goods, canning, main dishes, salads, soups, and quick lunches and suppers, she provides a wealth of information on nutrition, " Notes to Brides" , and helpful hints on cooking. Considered the " Martha Stewart" of her day, Kate Aitken`s practical recipes endure to delight Canadian families today.
