Give a Taste of Georgian Bay This Season.

Once in a while a book comes along that extends beyond the printed page. Come To Our Table, South Georgian Bay Community Cookbook is one of these books. Produced locally by three creative, food-loving folks, Come To Our Table has become a true community success, inspired by, embraced by and supporting the local food community.

From the moment you pick up this gorgeous 200-page hardcover, you’ll appreciate that this is more than just a cookbook. Each recipe, sourced from local chefs, producers and community groups, includes a bit of the story behind the recipe and together with profiles of the growers and producers connects you to the hard-working individuals who have contributed to South Georgian Bay’s booming culinary tourism. Stunning double-page photos of the area’s waterfalls and landscapes, as well as works from local artists and writers, creates a real sense of place–each one telling a unique story of the region.

The combination of art, stories, profiles, and recipes provides a bit of something for everyone regardless of whether you’re an avid cook or not. This is a book to turn to again and again, for the photography, recipes and for the timeless stories.

For those of us who do like to spend time in the kitchen, this is a cookbook you will actually use. Accompanied by drool-worthy professional culinary photography the recipes are simple, use accessible ingredients, and each one was diligently tested and edited to ensure that at-home cooks can easily recreate them.

The thought that went into the design and finish of this book is a big part of what sets it apart. The masterful layout and flow, as well as choice of paper stock and cover materials make it a real pleasure to flip through and ensures it looks as good on the coffee table as on the kitchen counter.

It’s no surprise that this book has become a go-to gift for locals and a treasured keepsake for visitors. Whether you live here or aspire to live here, the Come To Our Table, South Georgian Bay Community Cookbook is a wonderful way to explore, celebrate and share what a unique and incredible food community we have in South Georgian Bay.
