WASM reminders and news

Fellow WASM member, Diana Bruno, is in the spotlight:

Diana would be delighted if you would attend the virtual gala - Taste Canada Awards Virtual Ceremony this Sunday, October 25, 2020, 7:30 to 8 pm as the winners are announced.

Diana’s Lexqiue is shortlisted in the French language category “Narrations culinaires”. Diana says, “As far as I can tell, no dictionary in either English or French has been awarded in the previous 22 years of awards, but then again, none may have been entered either”. Congratulations from all of us at the WASM!

This is for the awards announcement.



How COVID-19 and comfort food have brought us back to community cookbooks.

The trend of so-called community cookbooks — self-published recipe collections, historically put together by women's church and school groups — goes back more than a century. They were a way of connecting community members with one another, for sharing a love of food, and for fundraising.

The Home Cookbook, published by the Ladies of Toronto, is the earliest known community cookbook in Canada. (Canadian Cookbook Collection/University of Guelph)

And yes! There are still about a dozen copies of the WASM “community” cookbook. Place a hold on one if you are interested and we will figure out a way for you to get it.


Features in the Fall issue of Concordia University Magazine include people in the arts and a lovely tribute to Leslie Clement (Cohen).
