Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver, at TheCommentary.ca.
Over the last couple of years we’ve had two of the Bridge ladies on the program. Mary Halpen was on in 2014, she was one of the original Bridge ladies, going back over forty years when she and a group of other ladies in Calgary decide to publish a book of the recipes that they shared at their regular card games. Thus was born the Best of Bridge, this long lasting, reliable brand in recipes, a hit not only here in Canada but beyond. Last year, Julie Van Rosendaal was on. She was a newer addition to the group, and now one of her best friends, Sue Duncan joins me now to talk about their latest book: The Best of Bridge: The Family Slow Cooker. The book’s got 225 all-new recipes everything from snacks and appetisers, to soups and chillies, and stews and curries. Hearty meat dishes, as well as breakfast and brunch, stocks and desserts. Sue Duncan grew up in Calgary and now lives in her family in the Okanagan valley. She’s best friends with Julie, and both were in Vancouver last week promoting this book. It’s published by Robert Rose. Visit www.bestofbridge.com, and Sue’s own Twitter @foodwhereIlive. Sue Duncan is the co-author, with Julie, of the best-selling cookbook, Spilling the Beans. And Sue, Julie and Elizabeth Chorney-Booth, are the authors of this new book, the new generation of Bridge ladies. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Sue Duncan; Ms. Duncan, good morning.
