Maglog: Saveur December 2008

What I learned from "Oh, Canada!" in Saveur, December 2008:

Until the mid-20th century, Canada had no national library charged with collecting and recording culinary texts (and unfortunately, the cache that was shipped to the British Library for storage was destroyed by a bomb during World War II), so Driver had to prepare her project from scratch. Indeed, nearly half of the volumes profiled in Culinary Landmarks were discovered in private homes.
