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. 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, a mouthwatering dish is so often the end result of a long line of adventures the island has to offer.
Island-born Jeff McCourt is the vice president of the PEI Association of Chefs and Cooks, and a chef at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino.
