Windermere Cookery is still available in the Invermere area.
Mary Leah de Zwart examined Windermere Cookery for her contribution to the Canadian Symposium XV – Issues and Directions in Home Economics. Human Ecology and Family Studies, held at Vancouver, BC Feb. 22-24, 2019.
The cookbook provides a look at the values, issues and beliefs of a 1950s community in British Columbia, as expressed in this small publication, intended to raise money for the Windermere Hospital Ladies Aid.
Game cookery was important; convenience foods were starting to creep in; the Windermere community was on the move.
