Setting a Fine Table is a selection of recipes from historic Fort York in Toronto. The recipes, from the officers' kitchen in the Fort, take you back to a time when food was not only made locally, but found locally-fresh off the land. The 30 recipes include the original, historic recipe, as well as its modern equivalent. Each recipe is introduced by an explanation of why it was chosen, how it would have been used at the Fort in the past and how it is used at the Fort today. With beautiful photographs and as well as a bibliography of the historic cookbooks from which the recipes are drawn, this book will appeal to anyone interested in historic cooking and Canadian history.
