& EMILY RICHARDS
Elizabeth Baird, recently honoured by becoming a member of the Order of Canada, has a lifelong passion for food and cooking with a special focus on all things Canadian. From her first book, Classic Canadian Cooking to her most recent, with co-author Rose Murray, Canada’s Favourite Recipes, the spotlight has been on what’s good to eat in Canada.
Over twenty years as food editor of Canadian Living provided many opportunities beyond directing the food section of the magazine. For television, it was Canadian Living Cooks: for cookbooks, notably The Complete Canadian Living Cookbook: and to bring backstories to the magazine, the privilege of talking to Canadians in their kitchens, markets, shops, farms, cheese factories, restaurants, and not forgetting fishing boats.
Emily Richards is a Professional Home Economist and has been an active member of the Canadian Living Test Kitchen. She partnered with Elizabeth Baird and Daphna Rabinovitch in the creation of “Canadian Living Cooks” for Food Network Canada and co-authored Canadian Living Cooks cookbook for Random House Canada. She is a sought-after cooking instructor in locations across Canada and the President-Elect of the Ontario Home Economics Association. In addition to developing recipes for corporate food clients, Emily has created recipes for the popular GI Diet cookbook series.
Elizabeth Baird and Emily Richards are both passionate about food and cooking. They look forward to coming to the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge’s Christmas in November program and sharing recipes that guests will not only enjoy at the Lodge but will take home and make for their families and friends.
