Last week was a real treat for me. I got to meet Anne Lindsay. She is the woman behind many cookbooks and she has sold over 2 millions copies of them! Holy doodle that rocks. Her new book is a compilation of recipes from the past… with some updates and ideas. She was on to something in the 80’s and her recipes still stand tall.
I have tried The Hearty Salmon Chowder (Anne said that was one of her favourites), the Szechuan Orange-Ginger Chicken, Citrus Quinoa Salad and the one I am making tonight, Fettuccine with Fresh Tomatoes, Basil and Shrimp. Honestly, all the recipes work – and they use REAL food. We currently have guests staying with us, and my two wee kidlets and each meal has been enjoyed by all. A testament to Anne and her recipes. She also has some tips to get kids into cooking.
I was able to have a quick chat with Anne at Barbara-Jo’s Books to Cooks in Vancouver. Anne was just going to do a segment with CBC’s Sheryl McKay from North By Northwest. Here is the video of our chat.
