The front cover features the title "Blue Ribbon Cook Book" in blue and red lettering against a beige background. In the center, there is a blue bow with white stripes followed by the phrase "Twenty First Edition." Along the left side there are three red lines with blue lettering that reads "For everyday use in Canadian homes." The back cover is plain. The inside pages begin with a foreword from the company Blue Ribbon Limited and continues with multiple informational pages titled Food and It's Uses, Meal Planning, Table Service, and Common Mistakes in Cooking. The rest of the inside pages are dedicated to various recipes that fall under the categories including beverages, breads, cakes, cheese, cookies, meats, fruits, frosting, salads, puddings, soups, and vegetables. Each recipe has the ingredients needed plus a detailed description on how to prepare the dish. The last few pages of the book entail blank pages where the owner can write down their own recipes.
