My Nova Scotia Cookbook - Chanelle Jefferson (Bridgewater)
Chanelle Jefferson is a born and bred Nova Scotian artist raised on fresh seafood, and leafy greens. She displayed an early passion for the arts that led her to study International Baccalaureate (IB) art classes in high school and pursue visual arts workshops in her free time. She currently works as an illustrator, painter and printmaker, while operating her business where she sells and distributes her works. My Nova Scotia Cookbook provides a delicious selection of Nova Scotia favourites for all cooks – beginner to experienced. This cookbook is a collection of recipes from Chanelle’s personal-favourite cook: Nana. Other recipes were provided by professional local chefs, family members, and other Nova Scotian’s who just, well… know how to cook. Chanelle Jefferson's whimsical drawings illustrate aspects of each recipe, making it easy for readers to break down and prepare these Atlantic dishes.
Fortress Rum Cake - Fortress Rum (Guysborough)
This dense, West Indies style cake with fruit, nuts and lots of Fortress Rum's award-winning rum, Fortress Rum Cake captures the spirit of the 300-year New France rum trade. The giving of rum cakes is an East Coast tradition dating back centuries that we’re proud to continue. They put Fortress Rum into the cake mix and then pour it over the cake when it comes out of the oven to create a moist, rich rum-filled cake that delivers the big flavours our rum is known for. And that full rum flavour only gets enhanced over time. The perfect thank you gift or way to celebrate a special occasion with family and friends, giving and receiving Fortress Rum Cake is a tradition worth protecting. The cake also pairs beautifully with a glass of our Fortress Rum, the ideal toast for any occasion. Fortress Rum is a member of Authentic Seacoast Company which includes Sea Fever Rum, Glynnevan Whiskey, Virga Vodkda, Rare Bird Craft Beer, Full Steam Coffee Company, DeBarres Manor Inn, Harbour Belle Bakery, Glanburn Artesian Water, Authentic Seacoast Soaps and the Authentic Seacoast Store.
