Bonnie Stern–the award winning author of twelve best-selling cookbooks–visited Trout Point last week for a 2-day sojourn. She writes weekly in the National Post and monthly in Readers Digest. As well as offering cooking classes, she has a unique book club where authors actually attend and dinner is included. She is the recipient of the 2007 Premier’s Award.
In the August edition of her food newsletter, Ms. Stern observed:
“This must be the best kept secret in Canada – a Relais & Chateaux in the deep wilderness of Nova Scotia next to the Tusket River near the Tobeatic Wilderness Area. The food is an interesting mix of Cajun and local Nova Scotian cooked by owners Vaughn Perret and Charles Leary, academics turned organic farmers in New Orleans who followed the Acadian trail back to Nova Scotia in 1999 to open this beautiful eco-friendly lodge. Along with rustic but luxurious accommodations, delicious seafood dinners, hiking, fishing and cooking classes are also offered.”
Thank you, Bonnie!
