Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

With direct quotes from L. M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea and Anne of Windy Poplars, Macdonald assembles a tempting array of recipes that any young cook can create. All of the dishes were inspired by references in the books, although "Marilla's Plum Pudding" with "Caramel Pudding Sauce" is offered without requiring the presence of a certain mouse. And "Diana Barry's Favourite Raspberry Cordial," which made Diana drunk, is here nonalcoholic. Macdonald is Montgomery's grandaughter, which will surely appeal to young Anne fans, but the book, with Di Lella's pleasant drawings, can be enjoyed by anyone.

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-7 ``Anne''-philes as well as those having only a nodding acquaintance with the classic Canadian series will be charmed by this collection of 25 tantalizing recipes. The author, who is a home economist and a granddaughter of Anne's creator, L. M. Montgomery, has selected recipes inspired by passages from the Anne books. The result is a delightful match of captivating quotations to appropriate delicacies. Anne's lament, ``I wish people could live on pudding. Why can't they, Marilla? I want to know,'' accompanies a butterscotch pudding recipe which could surely prove life-sustaining. Strategic cooking tips and definitions of essential culinary terms precede the simple but appealing recipes, all of which include lists of utensils needed. Novice cooks (and their parents) will welcome MacDonald's step-by-step procedures and selection of inexpensive ingredients. The emphasis is on sweets, with two-thirds of the recipes being for desserts. Delicate illustrations, some in full color, capture the essence of the series. Librarians who purchase this book can anticipate a rush on their Montgomery collections. Merilyn Burrington, Vergennes Union High School, Vt.

The recipes are fairly simple and very easy to understand.
Brian P Janowski
Especially good for those of us who read the books as kids and always wanted to try Raspberry Cordial.
Joe A D Martinez
The condition of the book was better than expected, it was used but was in excellent shape.

Cooking is one of my favorite hobbies. I rarely ever use a cookbook, but this one is the "exception to the rule." I have used several recipes from this book. Everyone especially loves the "Old-fashioned Lemonade!"
The young girls that I have introduced to "Anne" and the cookbook - absolutely love it! The cookbook is a wonderful tool for aspiring "chefs." It is delightfully illustrated and written by L.M.'s grand daughter - who happens to be a licensed home economist! What could be better?

I bought this book to the ridicule of family and boyfriend but now they're the one's who can't wait for me to make the recipes included! The saucy chicken was a hit with my mum as was the caramel sauce with everyone. Other recipies include raspberry cordial, shortbread (came out yummy), icecream and chocolate caramels. I can't cook to save my life but these recipies are a doddle, even when I messed up the traditional lemonade it still tasted great.

I bought this book for a friend, but before I gave it to her I poured over it. It is adorable and a great book for True Anne Lovers... and not just for kids! I made the raspberry cordial and it is simply delicous. This book brings back memories of Anne's adventures and important events in her life. You will enjoy this book if you are an Anne fan or if you are a cook... you will LOVE this book if you are an Anne fan AND a cook!

This cookbook will soon become a little girl's treasure. Illustrations are abound in this book, they include the characters that are in the Anne of Green Gables Cookbooks. You can easily see Anne and Diana preparing whats in this cookbook. The recipes are simple, easy to follow, and will come out well. Diana's Cordials are simply heavenly. This is a definately must have for any Anne of Green Gables fan.

I received this cookbook a long time ago, when I was a little girl and could not cook. This book gave me the confidence to prepare delicious dishes, like Anne's saucy chicken and Mrs. Irving's Shortbread. The first dinner that I cooked for my boyfriend (now he is my husband) was Anne's saucy chicken. He was so impressed that he thought I was a chef or something. What he did not know was that was the only recipe I knew! Since then, I have expanded my horizons, but I will treasure this cookbook forever.

PS: My husband and I went to Prince Edward Island for our honeymoon, so my love for "Anne" definitely determined our destination!

This book is amazing! The recipes are easy to follow and absolutely delicious :) I had to do a project for Home Ec. in which I planned and cooked a 4 course meal, then had people evaluate it, I used only recipes from this cookbook and it was fabulous. I would definately recommend this book to anyone. The illustrations add a wonderful touch to this masterpiece.
P.S. I got 96% on my project :)

I tried the shortbread recepie yesterday and it came out delicious. I was impressed! My parents, who are big fans of shortbread, loved it. My mom (who also makes shortbread) said it was the perfect taste and sweetness. Best of all it was easy, quick, and the ingredients were simple. Can't wait to try all the other recepies! (They also look easy enough).

I gave this book to a friend (25 yrs old at the time) and she loves it. We are both huge Anne Shirley fans and actually L.M. Montgomery fans too. This is a very sweet book that provides you with memories of some of Anne's memorable moments and adventures.
