A heartwarming story about a cabbage cookbook.

She started the P.E.I. Cabbage Club on Facebook, gathering and sharing recipes to encourage her fellow islanders to buy and cook the vegetable at home. The group attracted more than 800 followers.

She also made a point of reaching out to newcomers on P.E.I. — gathering recipes from the Afghan community, Indian community, and even some Buddhist nuns — to showcase the Island's growing diversity. 

People have bad memories of ... poorly cooked cabbage, steamed into submission in their childhoods.- Sam Sifton

The result is My PEI Cabbage Cookbook, a collection of recipes alongside profiles of some local cabbage farms, essays by fans of the vegetable, and illustrations by Rebecca Ford.
