Seasonings: A Year of Local Flavour in Words and Recipes is a delectable alchemy of artistry, creativity, and culinary magic in a literary cookbook. Arranged around the seasons, it celebrates locally available ingredients in recipes that are about community, sustainability, and good food. Gardening, sharing a meal, and the changing seasons are honoured in poetry, prose, and essay by well known writers: Rita Moir, Tom Wayman, Eileen Delahanty Pearkes and Almeda Glenn Miller. It even has a recipe from Whitewater Cooks Shelley Adams. Gorgeous photographs and inspired design complete the package. Just as we need food for our bellies, we need food for our spirits—and this book celebrates both.
Recipes include Spring Quinoa Tabouli, Asparagus Soup with Smoked Chicken, Greek-Style Creston Lentil-Feta Burger, Book Garden Potato Pie, Veggie Harvest Shepherd’s Pie, Spectaccula Moussaka, Borscht, Artisan Spelt Bread, Kootenay Cassoulet and a range of equally delectable desserts such as Swiss-style Rhubarb Pie and Trifle with a Twist of Angel.
