Amy Bronee interview: from blogger to published cookbook author


Amy’s cookbook features mouthwatering photography

Amy Bronee has a wonderful cookbook to her name. It’s called The Canning Kitchen: 101 Simple Small Batch Recipes, and it was published by Penguin Canada in 2015.  Amy works just around the corner from the AbeBooks HQ in Victoria, British Columbia, and she recently visited our office.

Her blog, Familyfeedbag.com, which features recipes on homemade food, played a key role in helping this writer get spotted. She explains her story and much more in our latest Behind the Bookshelves podcast, which will interest would-be food writers looking for that debut publishing deal.

The Canning Kitchen features easy to understand recipes for putting jams, jellies, marmalades, pickles, relishes, and chutneys into jars, along with superb photography, which Amy took herself, to inspire you (see below). There are also sections on sweet and savory sauces for good measure. We thoroughly recommend the book.

Recipes include strawberry rhubarb jam, crunchy dill pickles, salted caramel pear butter, bing cherry barbecue sauce, and sweet thai chili chutney. In addition to year-round recipes, The Canning Kitchen describes the techniques and equipment that you will need along with tips on selecting the fruit and vegetables for your canning.
