Jennifer Schell

The BC Wine Lover's Cookbook


Discover the vineyards, valleys, islands, deserts, and kitchens of BC's Wine Country in this collection of recipes, tour ideas, menus and more. The BC Wine Lover's Cookbook by Jennifer Schell looks great in any kitchen!

Take a tour through beautiful British Columbia with award-winning cookbook author and winemaker Jennifer Schell with her book The BC Wine Lover's Cookbook. The BC Wine Lover's Cookbook shares family stories and recipes from 53 top wineries located across the province - from the verdant, rolling fields of the Okanagan and Fraser Valley, to the misty coastlines of Vancouver Island, and beyond.

Meet the winemakers of BC wine country and take a seat at their table to share dishes that evoke the multicultural heritage of BC's wine industry. From tourtière to turkey moussaka and Michelle's Panna Cotta to Nana's Roast Caribou, these recipes have been lovingly handed down through the generations on handwritten recipe cards, on creased and spattered pages, sometimes even by word of mouth. And don't forget the wine! Each recipe is accompanied by a pairing suggestion from the winery's cellars. Whether you are perched on Naramata Bench or tucked up at home, this is a cookbook to read and to inspire.
