Discover the vineyards, valleys, islands, deserts–and kitchens–of BC’s Wine Country in this collection of recipes, tour ideas, menus and more.
Take a tour through beautiful British Columbia with award-winning cookbook author and winemaker Jennifer Schell. The BC Wine Lover’s Cookbook shares family stories and recipes from 53 top wineries located across the province–from the verdant, rolling fields of the Okanagan and Fraser Valley, to the misty coastlines of Vancouver Island, and beyond.
Meet the winemakers of BC wine country and take a seat at their table to share dishes that evoke the multicultural heritage of BC’s wine industry. From tourtière to turkey moussaka and Michelle’s Panna Cotta to Nana’s Roast Caribou, these recipes have been lovingly handed down through the generations–on handwritten recipe cards, on creased and spattered pages, sometimes by word of mouth. And don’t forget the wine! Each recipe is accompanied by a pairing suggestion from the winery’s cellars. Whether you are perched on Naramata Bench or tucked up at home, this is a cookbook to read and to inspire.
