The Stephen Leacock Associates are the guardians of the legacy of Canada's legendary humourist (and economist), Stephen Leacock. Each spring, in Orillia (the mythic Mariposa nestled on the shores of Lake Couchiching), the Associates host the annual Leacock Prize for Humour on Leacock's estate -- an event marked by laughter and the warmth of Mariposan hospitality. The Mariposa Cookbook is an entertaining and delicious collection of recipes and stories by former Leacock Prize-winners and the Leacock Associates. The text is augmented with photos drawn from the Leacock Associates Archives, Leacock's comments on food and drink, and delicate line drawings of artifacts from the Leacock House. Canada's literary heritage never tasted so good! Alan Maitland's Clam Pie, Erika Ritter's Klassic Kwic Fry, Timothy Findley's Chocolate Mousse, Marsha Boulton's Lamb Stew with Artichokes and Parmesan Dumplings (1996 Leacock Winner), Max Ferguson's Lemon Snow (1968 winner), June Callwood's Ginger Salmon, and Pierre Berton's Heavenly Corned-Beef Hash (1966 winner). Bill Richardson's contribution is Uncle Henry Miller's Sex in a Pan, a tooth-destroying recipe received by the Bachelor Brothers' Bed and Breakfast from Aelwyn Prichard of Vancouver, who was Uncle Henry Miller's nephew. (Richardson won the Leacock Prize in 1994). The cookbook includes favorite recipes from the kitchens of the Leacock Associates members, including Chicken Dijon, Shrimp L'Escaude, The Best Lasagna in the World, Avocado and Watercress Salad, and Cranberry Raisin Pie.
