Happy Holidays!


Thank you for an amazing 2018!

Forest City Cookbook - Happy Holidays.jpg

This project was a great success thanks to all of you! It all started as a one girl’s idea of making a cookbook she’d like to read. A book that would combine all her favourite books in one, showing her appreciation for the culinary heroes that work hard to make us all happy, and reminding us all how special it is to create meaningful memories with family & friends around the dining table.

Thanks to your support and love, this idea became a hardcover reality in 2018! It helped many of us discover hidden gems in our city, create meaningful relationships with chefs, farmers and artisans, make new friends and be proud of our local culinary community.

In the spirit of the holiday celebrations, we’d like to say thank you and wish you the very best for the New Year! We need more people like you in the world; kind, willing to help before asking questions, and open to believe!

This book meant different things for different people, for us, it was a tribute to memorable culinary experiences, to farmers, ingredients, chefs, books, travels, antiques, artisans and people who eat together!

Food is Love! We encourage you to share special moments and create meaningful memories with family & friends through the recipes and stories compiled in the Forest City Cookbook. Not only during the holiday season, but every single day!
