I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the Union Street Café Cookbook by Jenny Osburn.
First, we have eaten at the Union Street Café so many times, and have always loved the food. In fact, my husband and I went on our very first date there 13 years ago!Secondly, I have been friends with Jenny for a long time. We used to sing alto together in the Annapolis Valley Honour Choir, toured the UK together with the choir, and then spent our grade 12 year together at Horton.
You can learn more Jenny on her website. But trust me. She’s super cool, lots of fun, an amazing alto and a great cook!
Two great reasons to buy the book. Support good friends and eat good food.
Here’s what the website says:The Union Street Café Cookbook is a collection of the recipes customers have requested the most over the fifteen years that The Union Street Café has been serving up great local food.Moosewood Cookbook author Mollie Katzen calls it “Such a refreshing, original take on cooking!”
Printed by Gaspereau Press with a foreword by Chef Michael Smith, design by Deep Hollow Print, and a map to my favourite suppliers, it’s a real made-in-Nova-Scotia delight!
