I am very excited to announce a second cookbook from Jana’s Bake Shop.

My new book will be a beautifully designed and photographed hardcover book and include a new body of work, along with all your favourites.

It is an honour to have Figure 1 Publishing, Canada’s leading, award-winning publisher of beautifully illustrated books in the categories of food + wine, art, architecture, and design accept this project. Recent cookbooks include Lure by Ned Bell, Portland Cooks, The Dirty Apron Cookbook, and Burgoo.

Our first meeting in Vancouver, where I brought many samples for tasting, was a sweet success.  Their response, “We are all excited by the prospect of creating a cookbook of classic home-baked goods. We can create a beautiful and high-quality book driven by engaging content, an elevated design and, above all, delectable recipes. Jana’s new cookbook will also be very much about Salt Spring and it’s bounty of local ingredients that play a major roll in her kitchen.”

This is the press release regarding the deal announcement for “The Little Island Bake Shop: Heirloom Recipes Made for Sharing”
