The Springridge Gift Guide to Books
Springridge Farm has this year's best books for everyone on your Christmas shopping list!
Here are our top picks for book-giving this season:
Chuck's Day Off (Chuck Hughes)
Chuck Hughes is one of the nicest guests that we've had the pleasure of hosting over the years. Chuck's recipes are upbeat, current, and always fun - Turducken, Lobster Cobb Salad, Pork Belly with Coffee Glaze, Garbage Salad. Perfect for dudes.
Back to Basics (Michael Smith)
Bacon Mac N Cheese is reason enough to own this latest great book from our friend Chef Michael Smith. We love this collection of recipes - delicious food for real families. Our favourite recipes here? Michael's Simple Roast Chicken, Brown Butter Tarts, and Cracked Pepper Potatoes - all winners!
Lidia's Commonsense Italian Cooking (Lidia Bastianich)
Easily one of this season's best books, Lidia's latest is a must-have. Oregano Eggs, Bread and Basil Soup, Potatoes Baked in Beer, Grandma Rose's Apple Cake?...Yes, please! Lidia's books are perfect for gifts - these are trusted recipes from the authority on great Italian food.
The Unofficial Downton Abbey Cookbook (Emily Ansara Baines)
Such a great book - this one covers everything from Daisy's Mustard Salmon to Mrs. Patmore's Christmas Pudding. In addition to the obvious appeal to Downton Abbey fans, this book is a trove of interesting and accessible recipes. This is one of our most popular books - for a good reason!
Canadian Christmas Cooking (Rose Murray)
First published in 1979, Canadian Christmas Cooking is back with all of our favourites as well as a host of new classics - including our Springridge Farm Christmas Marmalade! Maple Syrup Pie, Tourtiere, Snow Muffins, Brie and Prosciutto Bread Pudding - all delicious. At only $19.99, this is a perfect book at a perfect price - buy one to give, but be sure to get one for yourself!
