International cooking has never been hotter. And Canadian Living, the authority on cooking in Canada, offers a new collection of recipes that bring global flavours to the North American table using easy-to-find ingredients and simple home-cooking techniques.

Home cooks have increasingly cosmopolitan tastes, and their tables reflect a growing emphasis on tasty dishes from many cultures. Whether they're entertaining or tossing together a simple weeknight meal, cooks want flavourful recipes that reflect the multicultural fabric of our nation. But they don't want the hassle of sourcing and buying a million different niche ingredients to add to their pantries.

The International Collection solves this challenge by offering easy-to-prepare dishes that use common foods. It also offers everyday supermarket substitutions for ethnic market ingredients and makes cooking global fare simple without sacrificing taste.
