A Cook Not Mad was inspired by Canada's first published cook book “The Cook Not Mad and rational cookery” printed in 1831. A Cook Not Mad is a person who is prepared with a plan when they enter the kitchen in order to not “go mad” while trying to make a meal.
Through our blog and website acooknotmad.com we are trying to continue that tradition by combining our love of food, travel and adventure. Everyone has to eat and we want to see how some of the world's most delicious and interesting cuisine is prepared and eaten by the people who created it, think steak Florentine, cassoulet or real Bavarian pretzels flammekueche , etc.
Join us as we travel to the source to discover local delicacies, delicious products and lots of tasty stories.
If our mission is accomplished you will be inspired and informed enough to enter your kitchen as “A Cook Not Mad” and recreate the true tastes of the countries we will visit together.
