This book was re-released this month, I received a copy through NetGalley.
It’s no secret that I love Anne of Green Gables. L.M. Montgomery is my favorite author of all time. I had the earlier edition of this book back in high school but it’s gotten lost somewhere in my parents’ house.
I am so happy to see this new edition and all of the recipes that have been added to it. This edition also has gorgeous looking pictures of each recipe that make you want to try everything. Some of the recipes are straight from the books while others are inspired by them or true to the time period L.M. Montgomery lived through.
The dessert recipes are my favorite, like Mrs. Irving’s Shortbread or Miss Ellen’s Pound Cake. I want to try Anne’s ‘Liniment’ Cake, it looks so good. There’s also a recipe for Raspberry Cordial that looks refreshing, but is nothing like the bubbly Raspberry Cordial you can get on Prince Edward Island.
This book is a great addition to any kitchen, or a good gift for any Anne fan. Even cooler, the author Kate Macdonald is L.M. Montgomery’s granddaughter, so the book is as authentic as they come.
