Member news: December 2017

Editors Nova Scotia member Valerie Mansour is editor of the just-released Nova Scotia Cookery, Then & Now: Modern Interpretations of Heritage Recipes. The book is based on an online exhibition of recipes dating back to the 1700s at the Nova Scotia Archives. Valerie and the Archives staff selected 83 recipes for the book, which were then matched with Nova Scotia chefs to create a modern version. Valerie also edited the recipes, wrote book and chapter introductions, and interviewed the 25 chefs and food industry professionals involved in the project. With stunning photographs of the modern dishes, as well as archival images, the book is a beauty—just in time for Christmas! It is published by Nimbus of Halifax and can be ordered directly from them, or through your favourite local bookstore.

In November, Editors Toronto member Michael Redhill won the 2017 Scotiabank Giller Prize for his novel Bellevue Square. The $100,000 Scotiabank Giller Prize is the richest literary award for a work of fiction in Canada. The prize has been awarded annually since 1994. Read the Editors Canada news release.
