Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Choosing Recipes

All types of recipes: main courses, side dishes, appetizers, breakfasts, soups, salads, snacks, smoothies, desserts, etc.

Choose recipes you love to make for special occasions or your "go-to" favourites you use often.

Yes, absolutely! This is a wonderful opportunity to share multicultural and international recipes within our school community.

Yes. You can send us a link to an online recipe or a photo/scan of a recipe from a cookbook or magazine. Let us know in the email if you recommend any modifications to the recipe and we can reflect those changes.

Recipes themselves (as a list of ingredients and preparation instructions) are not copyrightable. Our publisher has confirmed that there's no problem including recipes from websites, cookbooks, and magazines.

We gladly welcome recipes that are vegetarian, dairy-free, gluten-free, low carb, etc. However, there are no requirements to be included in the Cookbook.

Submitting Recipes

Email them to us at [email protected]. You can type the recipe into the email, attach it as a document, send as a link to a cooking website or video, or attach a photo/scan of a handwritten, cookbook, or magazine page. It's totally your choice!

Not at all! Simply take a photo of your printed or handwritten recipe and email it to us. One of our parent or youth volunteers will happily type it up for inclusion in the Cookbook.

We have room to publish 2 recipes per student or staff member. Some families have sent only one and others have sent us extras, in case we need more in certain categories.

The first round of submissions was due on February 5th and the second round was due on February 26th. We continue to accept recipes through the end of March Break.

We kindly ask that you submit your recipes as soon as possible so that our volunteer editors have sufficient time to prepare the book for printing.

Purchasing Cookbooks

We plan to open up ordering at the end of February, with a delivery date in late April 2024, in time for Mother's Day and Father's Day. Stay tuned for more information!
