What do you mean you've never heard of Paré? This caterer from Alberta, Canada wrote her first cookbook, 150 Delicious Squares, in 1981 at age 53. She's published over 200 separate titles under the Company's Coming series, selling over 30 million copies total. Okay, not all of these single-subject cookbooks are fabulous, but she's a Canadian culinary icon, and most Canadian homes have at least one of her books. This one is a true classic.
