Cedar Cottage Community Cookbook – Do You Have A Recipe To Share?

24 Jul


The Cedar Cottage-Kensington area is putting together a Community Cookbook.  This is one of the most ethnically diverse neighbourhoods in East Vancouver. The idea behind the cookbook is to celebrate all the unique and delicious cuisine of the neighbourhood by collecting recipes from residents within the community.  They are also inviting local restaurants in the area to submit their recipes.

You can provide them with your old family recipes or new culinary creations.  They are looking for recipes for desserts, appetizers, snacks and main courses from a variety of cultural backgrounds. They also wish to highlight origins of the recipes and what significance it holds to the contributor and within the community at large.

Their goal is to create a print book to sell at local businesses with a 100% of the proceeds to be donated to the Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood House. They also plan to create a website where every recipe submitted will be posted.  If you are from the Cedar Cottage-Kensington area and wish to submit a recipe, here are the guidelines of what to include:

–   A detailed recipe
–   Indicate if it is a dessert, main course, appetizer, etc.
–   Give them an idea of what the recipe means to you
–   Your name and preferred method of contact

Your submissions or any questions should be sent to: cottagecookbook@gmail.com.
