2014 Hall of Fame Inductees

Taste Canada’s Hall of Fame Award for 2014 was conferred upon Michel Lambert, author of the multi-volume tome: L’Histoire de la cuisine familiale du Québec.

The Hall of Fame Posthumous Award went to Mona Brun (1920-2013), the British Columbia-born cookbook author and television personality.

Taste Canada used the occasion of its Gala Fundraiser to acknowledge the massive contribution to the culinary community of Toronto’s Cookbook Store, which closed its doors this past winter after 31 years in business. As author Rose Murray remarked, “It was the little store that thought big,” and in the process, it became a Toronto institution.


New National Chair

Taste Canada also announced the appointment of a new National Chair, Donna Dooher, a chef, cookbook author, restaurateur and industry champion who will be assuming her new duties immediately.

“Donna and I go back several years ago. During this time I have come to understand and develop an appreciation for her tremendous influence in Canada’s food industry. Her gracious yet determined and savvy personality will bring substantial value to Taste Canada,” said Karen Gelbart, who is departing the role of National Chair after serving for the last three years.


New Award Category

Looking ahead to 2015, Taste Canada also announced the creation of a new award, The Food Blog Award, to be presented and administered in partnership with Food Bloggers of Canada.

Henckels, and cookbooks.   Thousands of entries later, The Vegetarian’s Complete Quinoa Cookbook by Mairlyn Smith, ed. and the Ontario Home Economics Association was announced as this year’s winner by Gill Deacon of CBC Radio’s Here and Now.

TASTE CANADA HALL OF FAME

ELIZABETH BAIRD:  Elizabeth Baird’s distinguished career in food began with an invitation from publisher James Lorimer to write a book about Canadian cooking. Classic Canadian Cooking, published in 1974, was her entrée into food writing.  She went on to work at various newspapers, but it was her work as food editor of Canadian Living Magazine – for 20 years – that truly made her a household name.  Along with magazines, there were other opportunities in radio and television – especially Canadian Living Cooks on the Food Network.  And then there were cookbooks, over 30 of them in all, most notably The Complete Canadian Living Cookbook. Elizabeth is the recipient of numerous awards and honours including the Founder’s Award from Cuisine Canada, a National Magazine Award, a Silver Ladle from the Toronto Culinary Guild, and she was also named the Women’s Culinary Network’s Woman of the Year. Most recently, she was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada.

POSTHUMOUS INDUCTEES

MÈRE EMÉLIE CARON – 1808-1888

Mère Emélie Caron is a prominent example of the many 19th-century women in religious orders who devoted themselves to feeding the poor with nutritious and tasty foods. She was the second mother superior of the Sisters of Providence, and hers is the only name officially attached to Directions diverses, a cookbook that was originally prepared for use at the sisters’ Mother House and subsequently became a standard kitchen reference at many of Québec’s Catholic institutions. First published in 1878, Directions diverses prompted eight editions up to 1913. Its recipes reflect the culinary tastes of the time, with the inclusion of English and American as well as French and traditional Québecois foods

HELEN GOUGEON – 1924-2000

Ottawa-born Helen Gougeon was a cookbook author, food journalist, and radio and television personality who was best known as an early advocate of ethnic cuisine in Canada and an enthusiastic promoter of regional Canadian cooking. Gougeon’s pioneering Cooking…with an Accent (1946) fostered Canadian interest in ethnic recipes long before the multi-cultural movement made this fashionable. She made Canadian regional cuisine accessible on a national scale by publishing recipes in her newspaper columns that had previously been known mostly through community cookbooks. Gougeon’s columns on cooking appeared in Canadian Living, the Montreal Gazette, the Montreal Standard, the Ottawa Journal and Weekend Magazine. Her broadcasting credits included the CBC television series “Bon Appetit”.

Taste Canada―The Food Writing Awards annually recognize and celebrate superior writing and publishing throughout Canada’s culinary world, both English and French.
