Welcome to A Cook Not Mad, a food and travel website
The Cook Not Mad: Or, Rational Cookery is considered to be Canada’s first cookbook published in 1831. In its day it claimed to represent “…Cooking, in its general acceptation, to the taste, habits and degrees of luxury, prevalent with the Canadian public.”
Its aim, as well as ours is to provide you with tips and inspiration to not “go mad” in the kitchen or on the road.
A Cook Not Mad is also a play on words of our obsession with food, its preparation and consumption. Our idea is to travel with a chef’s stomach for a compass and document our findings with a photographer’s eye.

We started keeping an online journal so our family and friends would know what we were up to. Like so many other bloggers, when we returned we noticed other people were interested in what we had to say and so continues our journey.
To get an idea of the food adventures we’ve had, here are a few popular post,
Join us in traveling farther around the world in search of honest food and delightful scenery. Our hope is to at least entertain you with a story, possibly tantalize you with some mouth-watering food and maybe even inspire you to get off the couch and get into the kitchen or start your own adventure.
