Lee Murphy, a passionate and knowledgeable jam master and owner of Vista D'oro Farms & Winery, presents a vibrant look at the pleasures of creating and using beautiful, seasonal preserves.
On an idyllic ten-acre farm and winery in sourthern British Columbia, Canada, Lee Murphy, a passionate and knowledgeable jam maker, creates delicious artisanal preserves made from in-season, locally grown fruit. Since 1990 when Lee and her husband, Patrick, moved their young family to this bucolic parcel of land, the Preservatory's products have gone on to be sold around the world, and Vista D'oro Farms & Winery has become a culinary destination, attracting thousands of visitors each year.
     In The Preservatory, you will find more than 80 recipes--40 for preserves, organized by growing season, from Roasted Strawberry & Mint to Moroccan-Spiced Sour Cherry to Pear & Cocoa Nib; and more than 40 recipes for brunch, aperitivo, dinner, and dessert that incorporate the preserves. Among Lee's farm-inspired family-pleasing dishes are recipes for Olive & Caramelized Onion Tart, Grilled Flank Steak Salad, and Glazed Almond & Polenta Cake. Lee also provides a wealth of information on how to source and select the best fruit, detailed instructions on basic preserving techniques, and ideas and recipes for how to cook with preserves.
    Featuring 145 full-color photographs, this beautiful book is a celebration of the pleasures of making your own preserves, living seasonally, and the myriad ways preserves can enhance your cooking every day.
    The Preservatory is the first place winner in the reference category of the 2017Alcuin Society Awards for Excellence in Design.
