Great Scoops shortlisted for 2023 Taste Canada Award

We are delighted to announce that Great Scoops: Recipes from a Neighborhood Ice Cream Shop has been shortlisted for the 2023 Taste Canada Awards.

Great Scoops, by Marlene Haley and Amelia Ryan of The Merry Dairy with Anne DesBrisay, is shortlisted alongside four other titles in the Single-Subject Cookbooks category. The coveted culinary writing award will be given to the best cookbook written by a Canadian author (or authors), which features a single topic.

The book features a collection of 80 easy, custard-style and vegan ice creams and delectable desserts. From hibiscus & passion fruit and bourbon black cherry to triple chocolate and caramel popcorn, this exciting new cookbook also includes recipes for signature sauces, toppings, and baked goods (say hello to chocolate chip cookies and meringue kisses). Best of all, the ice creams are nut-free, sesame-free, (and some even gluten-free).

This year—the 26th year of the Taste Canada Awards—76 cookbooks were entered in the competition, featuring authors from a record-tying nine provinces, according to Taste Canada.

The winners will be announced at the Taste Canada Awards Soirée on Monday, October 30th, 2023.
