Culinary Landmarks is a definitive history and bibliography of Canadian cookbooks from the beginning, when La cuisinière bourgeoise was published in Quebec City in 1825, to the mid-twentieth century. Over the course of more than ten years Elizabeth Driver researched every cookbook published within the borders of present-day Canada, whether a locally authored text or a Canadian edition of a foreign work. Every type of recipe collection is included, from trade publishers' bestsellers and advertising cookbooks, to home economics textbooks and fund-raisers from church women's groups. The entries for over 2,200 individual titles are arranged chronologically by their province or territory of publication, revealing cooking and dining customs in each part of the country over 125 years. Full bibliographical descriptions of first and subsequent editions are augmented by author biographies and corporate histories of the food producers and kitchen-equipment manufacturers, who often published the books. Driver's excellent general introduction sets out the evolution of the cookbook genre in Canada, while brief introductions for each province identify regional differences in developments and trends. Four indexes and a 'Chronology of Canadian Cookbook History' provide other points of access to the wealth of material in this impressive reference book.

Award-winning author Finola Moorhead is back with a new and ambitious novel which follows ex-cop Margot Gorman into her new life. Triathlete and wine connoisseur, Margot finds a body in the women's toilets at Port Water on the Paradise Coast. Who killed the boy in women's clothing? Who is mining rubies on women's lands? Who broke the bridge? What is the other ex-cop, Tiger Cat, up to? And who are the Solanasites? This is a remarkable literary achievement: detective novel, philosophical investigation, and speculation on history and the future.
