To mark the fifth anniversary of the Spice Island Cultural Festival that will be celebrated on July 8-10, The Spice Island Cultural Day Association of Quebec (SICDAQ) is producing a Grenadian cookbook, in partnership with the Grenada Culinary Network (GCN.)
This compilation entitled “Grenada-Licious! Celebrating a Culinary Capital” will feature page after page of delectable recipes from our favorite chefs who have supported the organization over the years and many of our supporters and home cooks.
But SICDAQ is reaching out to the community to submit their favourite recipes from “back-home” to be included in the cookbook
“Grenada-Licious! Celebrating a Culinary Capital”is also the theme of the 2022 Spice Island Cultural Festival, which is to be held outdoors at Vinet Park and stream virtually as well on July 9, 2022.
The cookbook will mark the organizations’ recognition of the tri-island state of Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique being named the world’s first Culinary Capital by the World Food Travel Association (WFTA) in 2021.
Proceeds from the cookbook’s sales will go to assisting Grenadian students in need.
Recipes could include drinks, appetizer, main dish, snack, soup, dessert, salad or salad dressing, sauce or gravy, or a rub, anything with roots in Grenadian spices or ingredients.
Montrealers are encouraged to sign up to participate by March 30, by visiting our website at: www.spiceislandculturalfestival.com and clicking on Festival Info to complete the sign-up form.
Deadline to submit your recipe is April 15, 2022.
The cookbook will be launched on July 8-10, 2022 during the Spice Island Cultural weekend Festival. Best part?
If your submission makes this year’s cookbook, your name, and a short description of what the recipe means to you, will be included. As well, the cookbook will feature extraordinary chefs complemented by culinary achievements and cooking tips.
