The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook

Kate MacDonald. Oxford University Press, USA, $14.95 (48pp) ISBN 978-0-19-540496-8

With direct quotes from L. M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea and Anne of Windy Poplars, Macdonald assembles a tempting array of recipes that any young cook can create. All of the dishes were inspired by references in the books, although ""Marilla's Plum Pudding'' with ``Caramel Pudding Sauce'' is offered without requiring the presence of a certain mouse. And ``Diana Barry's Favourite Raspberry Cordial,'' which made Diana drunk, is here nonalcoholic. Macdonald is Montgomery's grandaughter, which will surely appeal to young Anne fans, but the book, with Di Lella's pleasant drawings, can be enjoyed by anyone. (All ages)
