Editorial Reviews


"…150 recipes for old favourites and new taste treats." The Chronicle, Linda Turk

"…contains lots of fun facts and delicious ideas." Calgary Herald

"…an encouraging book…should promote the cultivation and consumption of this admirable plant." Barbara Robertson, CBRA

"I received a delightful little cookbook with all kinds of recipes using rhubarb.... I have tried some of the 150 recipes in this book. Besides cobbler and crisp recipes, there are soups, beverages, cakes, muffins, breads, jams, sauces, condiments, salads and main dishes." Alma Copeland, The Western Producer

Dear Sir: I just purchased your Rhubarb cookbook and even though I don’t need another cookbook I just had to buy this one as it brought back so many memories of my childhood in Scotland. Our late mother made so many different things with it as we grew it in the garden: rhubarb jam, rhubarb and ginger jam, stewed rhubarb as a spring tonic, stewed rhubarb for breakfast on your Cornflakes… It was interesting to read through the book to see a lot of new recipes that I will be trying in the near future. I have been baking for almost 53 years and I still enjoy finding new books to read and new recipes to try. Rhubarb Rules. Yours Sincerely, Alex McCrindle

I bought three-- one for me, my sister and my sister-in-law. How can you go wrong with a book only about rhubarb. I hoard all the rhubarb I can get my hands on so I have it through the winter.
