The Bologna Cookbook is dedicated to “bologna lovers the world over.”
It has already struck a nerve, placing third for the best meat cookbook category at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.
THE BOOK: Two hundred recipes starring bologna, divided into appetizers, breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Best of all, there’s a colour photo with every dish.
THE AUTHOR: Kevin Phillips grew up in Cape St. George, N.L., served in the Canadian Armed Forces for 33 years and retired as a master warrant officer. He then studied cooking and now lives in Oakville. This is his first book and it was published by Flanker Press in Newfoundland.
THE RECIPES: Everything from the whimsically named (Newfie toques, Snakes Crawl at Night), to the ordinary (bologna fingers, Newfoundland poutine) to the fancy (bologna au vin).
