Garden to Table
Hollyhock center chefs celebrate thirty years of exquisite meals on Canada’s Cortes Island with more than two hundred sustainable, garden-fresh recipes.
World renowned as an unparalleled center of learning and connection, Hollyhock exists to inspire, nourish and support people who are making the world better. At the heart of this unique institution, located on beautiful Cortes Island, is Hollyhock's spectacular organic garden, just steps away from the ocean view kitchen. Following their popular Hollyhock Cooks, Moreka Jolar and Heidi Scheifley offer more than 200 new garden-inspired recipes.
Hollyhock: Garden to Table invites you to enjoy the beauty of fresh, local food. The book is filled with imaginative ideas, global inspiration, and invaluable growing tips from Hollyhock's own Master Gardener, Nori Fletcher. The versatility of whole grains, healthy oils and natural sweeteners is showcased in mouthwatering creations such as:
- Thin-Crust Pizza with Nettle Pesto and Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Asparagus and Chevre
- Black Sesame Crusted Albacore Tuna with Ponzu Sauce
- Soft Polenta with Roasted Butternut Squash, Caramelized Onions, Peas and Smoked Cheddar
- Honey Roasted Pears with Balsamic & Mascarpone
