Flavours of Prince Edward Island

A Culinary Journey

Forward by Chef Michael Smith

Bring the best cuisine from PEI home with you with this collection of amazing recipes from the island’s best chefs.

Prince Edward Island is a chef’s paradise. Its abundance of fresh, local ingredients is as inspirational as its magnificent red sands or its salt-sprayed red cliffs. Now, bring the taste of PEI home with you, with a stunning collection of recipes from PEI’s top chefs, enriched by photographs and stories from the island’s cooks, farmers and fishers and a foreword by Food Network star Michael Smith. From heading down to the wharf early to get your pick of the best lobsters, to taking an afternoon to forage for the elusive chanterelle, tasting the mouthwatering dish that’s the end result is the last in a long line of adventures the island has to offer.

Equally at home on a coffee table or in the kitchen, this stunning book will appeal to those who love PEI—whether they already live there, have just visited, or plan to visit one day. Each chapter focuses on one of the Island’s delicacies, and tells the story of how signature ingredients make their way from the farm, field, or ocean to your plate. With profiles of chefs, fishers’ tips, and an incredible array of recipes from the island’s best-known chefs, Flavours of Prince Edward Island is a book that no seafood lover, mushroom forager, berry picker or home cook can do without.
