The Canadian Living Test Kitchen: Tested Till Perfect


Tested till perfect

This symbol represents recipes developed by The Canadian Living Test Kitchen.

Our Test Kitchen staff write, test, taste and perfect the recipes you find in the pages of Canadian Living Magazine, which are later published on

The Test Kitchen team, under the direction of Food Director Annabelle Waugh, is comprised of industry professionals and food experts from many backgrounds - they are chefs, home economists, recipe developers and food writers. Together they represent decades of kitchen expertise.

Canadian Living Test Kitchen food experts create every recipe to inspire home cooks and share how fun and satisfying cooking is. The team works together to produce approximately 1000 Tested Till Perfect recipes each year, and they really mean "tested till perfect." They won't stop until they're confident you'll get the same results in your kitchen as they do in theirs.
