VANCOUVER — Destination Canada and Air Canada have released Canada’s Best New Cookbook to showcase people, places, ingredients and dishes from across the country.
The cookbook features recipes from more than 30 restaurants – all previous Top-10 winners of Air Canada enRoute’s Canada’s Best New Restaurants program from the past 20 years – and stories that explore the unique culinary regions and personalities across Canada. Each recipe is a reflection of how its ingredients are connected to place.
“This cookbook is a distillation of the country’s thriving food scene,” says Amy Rosen, author of Canada’s Best New Cookbook. “We intentionally designed this cookbook to showcase each of Canada’s different regions and the diversity of talent who have and continue to shape Canada’s culinary landscape.”
“From coast-to-coast-to-coast, Canada’s culinary talent is world-class, and we have been proud to support our country’s restaurant scene through Canada’s Best New Restaurants since 2002, and now with Canada’s Best New Cookbook,” says Andy Shibata, vice-president, Brand at Air Canada. “This collector’s item honours our country’s distinct cuisine through vibrant recipes and stories of Canada’s unique regions and ingredients, re-affirming Canada’s position as a destination with a rich and enduring culinary tradition.”
“Canada has an extraordinary culinary narrative,” says Gloria Loree, senior vice-president, Marketing Strategy and Chief Marketing Officer, Destination Canada. “So much of the country’s culinary identity is rooted in the culture and geography of our communities. In every region you visit, there are Canadians who are proud to serve homemade dishes steeped in local traditions that showcase seasonal abundance. Canada is a country where there’s always room for one more at the table. We hope this cookbook will inspire new culinary experiences – both at home and in travelling Canada.”
