Prairie Feast for Christmas

I may be biased, but I think Prairie Feast makes a wonderful gift for anyone who lives on the prairies or is new to the prairies or who loves the flavours of local food. Pick up a copy on Saturday, December 4, and I'll be happy to sign it for that special someone on your list.

Saskatoon Farmers' Market - 10-noon-ish
McNally Robinson Booksellers - 3-5 pm

Come take a look at the book and say Hello!

Saskatchewan Book Awards Winner!

Prairie Feast was honoured with the award for Best First Book at the Saskatchewan Book Awards gala on Saturday evening. It was so amazing to be chosen from among all the wonderful first-time authors in Saskatchewan over the past year.

Many thanks to my publisher, Coteau Books of Regina, and to my editor Roberta Coulter. And of course to John, my faithful dinner partner.

"Loved It"

It's a wonderful book! Loved it from beginning to end. And the clafoutis recipe is our new favourite.

"A Reader's Feast"

Prairie Feast is more than just a book about eating close to home. It’s a reader’s feast, as well. A cookbook that reads like a memoir.
