The Coobook Club tackles quinoa

This week our Cookbook Club got familiar with an ancient grain.  Linda Santo and Karen Delage tested out "The Vegetarian's Complete Quinoa Cookbook" from the Ontario Home Economics Association, edited by Marilyn Smith.

If you've never had quinoa before, it's origins are in South America and it's one of the trendiest foods right now because of its high protein, low-fat and gluten-free content.  From brownies to quiche to salads, our All is a Weekend cookbook club members got to know the many uses for quinoa over the last few weeks. 

Linda is retired and lives in Sutton where she and her husband tested out the recipes. Karen just opened a new cafĂ© in Montreal and tried out some of the recipes there on her customers.

They spoke with Sonali Karnick about how their recipes turned out and whether they think this cookbook is a good buy.

Evan lead the charge in testing more than 24 recipes from the book, including her first taste of curry and a new way to spice up carrots. They spoke with Sonali Karnick about what they thought of the book and how Evan's palette is now a little more exotic!

Cookbook Club: Elizabeth & David try SoupeSoup

SoupeSoup.jpgIt's time again for our monthly Cookbook Club.  We've sent out a copy of a cookbook to two reviewers from the All in a Weekend audience who like to cook - and now they're joining us on-air to tell us what they thought of it.

This time around, the cookbook is SoupeSoup by Montreal restaurateur Caroline Dumas.

Elizabeth Woodliffe is an IT consultant in Quebec City. She calls herself an intermediate-level home cook who tries to make most things from scratch and keep them heart-smart. She's in our Quebec City studio.

David Workowich is a Montreal caterer and former restaurant owner and he has cooked in kitchens from Hong Kong to Ungava Bay. He joins Sonali Karnick in Montreal.
