New on the Shelf: The Grounds Café: Seasonal Dishes from Murray’s Century Farm
We are delighted to announce The Grounds Café: Seasonal Dishes from Murray’s Century Farm, a farm-to-table cookbook with recipes by chef Nick van Mele.
The Murray family has been farming the land in Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s for 200 years. What began as a subsistence family farm has evolved into Murray’s Garden Centre, Murray Meadows Farm, and The Grounds Café—a farm-to-table restaurant and favourite brunch and lunch destination serving up bright, creative meals and decadent baked goods.
This eye-catching book features dozens of recipes by chef Nick van Mele, whose dishes have made The Grounds Café a destination for enjoying locally sourced food made from the freshest locally grown crops. As you travel through the farming year in The Grounds Café, you’ll meet many of the farmers, foragers, foodies, and friends that have become the Murray’s community.
