Finally experience the foods from this classic children's series with The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook.

Join Anne Shirley and her friends in Avonlea with the charming recipes in The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook, a recipe collection inspired by L.M. Montgomery’s famous children’s book series, Anne of Green Gables.

Have you ever wanted to sneak a sip of Diana Barry’s Favorite Raspberry Cordial or try a slice of Anne Shirley’s Liniment Cake (without the liniment!)? Now you can, with the delightful teatime snacks, mains, desserts, and more created by Kate Macdonald, L.M. Montgomery’s granddaughter.

From Poetical Egg Salad Sandwiches and Marilla’s Plum Pudding with Caramel Pudding Sauce(without the mouse!) to Gilbert’s Hurry-Up Dinner, the recipes included here are mentioned throughout the books in the Anne of Green Gables series, along with recipes from L.M. Montgomery’s own kitchen. With a lovely grosgrain ribbon, full-color photography, whimsical illustrations, and quotes and anecdotes, this cookbook is the ideal gift for all “kindred spirits” and lovers of Avonlea.



A delightful cookbook that will be cherished!

I very much enjoyed THE ANNE OF GREEN GABLES COOKBOOK. Reading this treasure took me back to a loving place, and made me long for simpler times.

This book starts with an introduction from author Kate Macdonald, daughter of Anne of Green Gables author, L.M. Montgomery. While this cookbook will be a favorite among adults, in the introduction, Ms. Macdonald is clearly speaking to young (child) cooks, with instructions for safety, and cleanliness (though good reminders for us adult cooks as well). The introduction is followed by helpful cooking tips and terms.

Each chapter of THE ANNE OF GREEN GABLES COOKBOOK is based on a different series. Chapter 1 - Recipes from Anne of Green Gables, Chapter 2 – Recipes from Anne of Avonlea, Chapter 3 – Recipes from Anne of Windy Poplars, and finally Chapter 4 – Recipes from L.M. Montgomery’s Kitchen. Every chapter is filled with beautiful color photos of most of the recipes, along with quaint sights. Also, on just about every page, are quotes from the beloved characters of the series.

Some of the recipes you’ll find are . . . Puffy Apple Dumplings, Gilbert’s Hurry-Up Dinner, Marilla’s Plum Pudding, Miss Stacy’s Baked Macaroni, White Sands Scalloped Tomatoes, Poetical Egg Salad Sandwiches, Thick and Creamy Vegetable Soup, Orange Angel Cake, Fire and Dew Sweet Potatoes, Cavendish Catsup, and so many more!

I can’t stress how much I loved THE ANNE OF GREEN GABLES COOKBOOK. This heart and tummy warming cookbook is a much have for cooks off all ages, and of course, fans of Anne of Green Gables. Pick up a copy for yourself, and for a friend. You’re going to adore it!
