Cooking with Glo is a return to a dab and a pinch, a dollop and a sprinkle. This is cooking learned at a mother's apron strings; and her mother from her mother. McNeill believes that healthy cooking is social, convivial and accessible, and the recipes contained here are dispensed with a charm, wit and the sage wisdom pulled from a full life. She really is the Mrs. Beeton for our times.
At the age of 82, Glo McNeill won the television program Recipe to Riches grand prize of $250,000 and had her Luscious Lemon Pudding sold throughout Canada. Canada not only fell in love with McNeill's Luscious Lemon Pudding, they fell in love with McNeill. In an era of haute cuisine, McNeill was a throwback.
