Early praise for Taste from across the country:
This stunning book is a treasure trove of the tastes and temptations that the prairie soil brings to life each season. The colours are beyond the traditional prairie palette, the recipes are a feast for the senses and you will discover many things about our homeland. This compendium is an inspiration to plant your garden, take a walk through the forests that cling to the sides of our highways, or take to the kitchen with a new enthusiasm! It’s a reflection of our new spirit—moving beyond the comfort zone of what we think of as traditional prairie fare. Food for the Saskatchewan soul indeed!! —the Honourable Pamela Wallin, Senator, Saskatchewan
Taste: Seasonal Dishes from a Prairie Table is an eye-opening treasury of distinctly western Canadian recipes. Each dish is lovingly drawn from the homegrown ingredients of the Prairie larder.—Karl Wells, food columnist, The Telegram, St. John’s
CJ captures the richness and beauty of Saskatchewan in her words and photos. This is a beautiful book, not just for its terrific recipes but for its tribute to the people and the land around us. It made this Prairie boy hungry and brought a tear to my eye at the same time.—John Gilchrist, Calgary food writer
Take a bumper harvest of lucid prairie recipes, fold them around personal anecdotes, local details and food lore, then garnish generously with CJ’s own glorious photographs: a fascinating portrait of Saskatchewan’s foodways emerges. What a delicious introduction to Canada’s heartland!—James Chatto, Toronto food writer
