We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, The Little Island Bake Shop by Jana Roerick which has launched today in Canada, and in the US tomorrow.

Baking is as much about feeding someone’s heart and soul as it is about nourishing their body. It’s also about kindness and generosity: whether it’s a pie or a tray of cookies, baking is always meant to be shared.

In 2003, Jana opened her first bakery, Jana’s Bake Shop, on Salt Spring Island, one of the Gulf Islands in the Strait of Georgia between mainland British Columbia, Canada and Vancouver Island. She has an approach to baking that is reminiscent of the type of quality our Grandmother’s had – using fresh scratch ingredients that provide the best result possible – no shortcuts. 

The Little Island Bake Shop features a collection of 80 recipes for everyday bakes (muffins, pies and cakes) designed for bakers of varying skill levels. The cookbook also includes savoury dishes such as comforting pot pies, quiches, and even homemade pickles, relishes and chutneys. Lastly, there is a section devoted to the essentials – basic pastry doughs, frostings, glazes, crumbles, and custards – which will have us mastering the basics in no time. 

There is a warm, charming feeling to this book that is magnified by the beautiful photographs. The Lavender honey cake, Mother’s lemon pudding cake, and a bar dedicated to Jana’s mother, Barbars, are examples of a few of the recipes I have bookmarked to make. Having had this book for a while now, I have made two recipes: the Walnut brownies which were a snap and delicious and the Pecan pie, equally tasty (recipe shared below).
