I have a lot of cookbooks. Maybe too many? Nah….there’s so much creativity, inspiration & beautiful photos, and every cookbook offers something new.

Attending the second Inspired to Taste Canada: An Evening of Fun, Food and Canadian Cookbook Authors event at Hudson’s Bay gave me the opportunity to meet the authors, ask questions, watch them demo one of their delicious recipes and of course, sample the goods!
