Heritage House Publishing is proud to announce Cooking Tips for Desperate Fishwives: An Island Memoir by Margot Fedoruk has won a Silver award in the Culinary Narrative category at the 2023 Taste Canada Awards.
On October 30, 2023, Taste Canada announced the winners of the 26th annual prizes during a Soirée at the historic Fairmont Royal York hosted by Ali Hassan. The shortlists were announced in June, listing finalists in five categories in both French and English. Taste Canada is Canada’s only national, bilingual food writing awards.
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.
Margot Fedoruk is a writer, book reviewer, and entrepreneur, with a BA from the University of Winnipeg and a BA from Vancouver Island University where she majored in Creative Writing.
