Back in 1980, The Lazy Gourmet founder Susan Mendelson included her famous Nanaimo Bars recipe in her first cookbook, Mama Never Cooked Like This. It took off, popularizing the local treat, and making it the commercial success it is today.
With recent renewed interest, The Lazy Gourmet has launched a special Virtual Nanaimo Bars Cooking Class with Mendelson herself, on March 31st, 2021. The 45-minute live class ($30) includes a signed recipe card and all the ingredients to make the sweet, no-bake layered Canadian classic. It is available to everyone across Canada; interested participants can register online.
Mendelson has since created several different Nanaimo Bar flavours, including cappuccino, peanut butter, candy cane, cranberry and The LG bar (reverse Nanaimo Bar), all based off of her classic recipe. We can’t wait to learn more from this cooking queen! —Vita Daily
