Best of Bridge

The acclaimed Best of Bridge cookbooks are an international phenomenon, with four million books bought by those who want tried-and-true recipes with outstanding results. Each of their cookbooks offers tantalizing dishes as well as the Bridge ladies’ legendary humor, creating a culinary gem for any home cookbook collection.

In 1975, at a weekend getaway, eight women friends had an idea: Since a consistent highlight of their decade-old bridge group was the food they prepared and enjoyed together, perhaps they should think about writing a cookbook. This spur-of-the-moment notion was the impetus for The Best of Bridge, which went on to become one of the most successful brands in Canadian publishing.
