Heritage House Publishing is delighted to announce Cooking Tips for Desperate Fishwives: An Island Memoir by Margot Fedoruk is shortlisted for the 2023 Taste Canada Awards in the Culinary Narrative category.
The winners will be announced at the Taste Canada Awards Soirée on October 30, 2023.
Part love story, part survival story, part meditation on family dysfunction, Fedoruk’s offbeat memoir chronicles the unpredictable life of a young wife and mother on a tiny BC island. True to its title, Cooking Tips for Desperate Fishwives is a memoir infused with recipes, from the hearty Eastern European fare of Margot’s childhood to more adventurous coastal BC cuisine.

She holds a BA from the University of Winnipeg and a BA from Vancouver Island University where she majored in Creative Writing.
