And whether it's lunch for school, for the office or a holiday weekend at home, the recipes in Lunch Box are not only creative, practical and economical, but delicious and nutritious as well.

Lunch Box: Creative Recipes for Everyday Lunches is lavishly illustrated with color photographs and line drawings throughout.

"Lunch Box: Creative Recipes for Everyday Lunches is filled with everything you could ever wish to know about how to make lunch. The authors are dieticians based in Quebec and take a rather French flair to packed lunched. When it was first published in 2001, Lunch Box won Cuisine Canada's Gold Trophy for best French-language cookbook in Canada. It has just been translated into English and, unfortunately, the translations are a bit rough in spots. But that doesn't detract from the impressive content." - The Record (Sherbrooke, QC) "While the book is not strictly geared for children's lunches, many of the recipes have kid written all over them - like a tortilla wrap stuffed with cream cheese and tuna; Kiddies Confetti Rice, an egg and rice custard that can be made in individual ramekins; and hummus, perfect for dipping raw vegetables. The shepherd's pie recipe, a family favourite with Emond that can easily be packed for lunch the next day, has brought her rave reviews from parents and children." -- CM Magazine "Lunch Box: Creative Recipes for Everyday Lunches is filled with everything you could ever wish to know about how to make lunch.
