      Prince Edward Islanders are famous for hosting family and friends in the kitchen. Canada's Food Island invites you to celebrate the Island's farm-to-table cooking and meet the farmers, fishers and artisans who make those delicious dishes possible. From preparing the perfect lobster roll in spring and galettes filled with sweet fresh-picked strawberries in summer to making savory potato pizza in fall and roast turkey with an oyster, bacon and wild mushroom stuffing in mid-winter, you're sure to find a favourite recipe to delight guests and satisfy your own cravings.

      Canada's Food Island combines nearly 100 inspired seasonal recipes with homegrown stories and beautiful photographs to capture the essence of the island's unique food culture - a blend of people, place and locally sourced fresh natural ingredients. You'll learn how mussels and oysters are sustainably raised and harvested, why Island beef is so flavourful and what makes wild blueberries so special.

      Royalties from sales of the book will go to PEI Food Banks with the mission to increase food security for Islanders by supporting Food Banks and the individuals who are in need of their support.

      "PEI is one of the most breathtaking and scenic places on Earth, with deep-rooted culinary traditions from the land and sea. Whether eating shellfish harvested by its fishermen, picking potatoes with its farmers, sampling local cheese, or sharing a jar of bar clams at a kitchen table with its locals, you'll always feel a part of the Island family." - Chuck Hughes, executive chef and TV personality

      "I love everything about this book - the land and the people it celebrates, the food it honours, the stories it tells, and the cause it supports. Beautiful!" - Rick Mercer, bestselling author and host of The Rick Mercer Report

      "Prince Edward Island is a giant green farm floating in the deep blue sea, fringed by white sandy beaches and stuffed tip-to-tip with authentic food stories. Blessed with amazing ingredients from some of the richest soil and healthiest oceans on the planet, we are farmers, fishers, and foragers. Our cooks and chefs are rooted in the land and buoyed by the sea, and our deep respect for this place is reflected in our world-class cooking. Canada's Food Island is a celebration of all that we are." - Chef Michael Smith, Island innkeeper and author
