The Canadian Museum Association has released a unique cookbook entitled, Great Canadian Masters, featuring delicious recipes by Canada's top chefs that are inspired by a wide range of Canadian art and paintings collected by museums and galleries throughout the country.
One of the paintings included is the watercolour portrait "Sophie with Berry Basket, Stanley Park" by Margaret Wake. The painting which captures the image of a well-known Squamish Indian woman, is one of many First Nations art pieces from the Museum of Vancouver's collection. The painting is paired with a recipe for a decadent fruit pastry inspired by the berry basket featured in the painting. The recipe was created by third season's Top Chef Canada winner, Matthew Stowe.
