Lee Murphy is a passionate and knowledgeable jam master and the owner of Vista D'oro Farms & Winery in British Columbia. Vista D'oro houses The Preservatory where Lee Murphy and her team create delicious artisanal preserves in small batches using copper pots for locals and visitors alike.

In The Preservatory, Lee demonstrates how to create your own unique preserves and how to use them in delicious recipes (preserves are not just for toast!). The creative options are truly endless, and this book will make jam masters out of everyone.

Organised by season, the book features 55 recipes for preserves, such as Strawberry with Rose Petals, and Banana Passion Fruit & Rum; and 45 recipes using preserves, among them Gorgonzola Gougere with Pear; Indian Spiced Meatballs with Green Tomato & Garam Masala; and Pan Seared Scallops with Green Walnut & Grappa. Each preserve recipe has suggestions for which recipes to use those preserves with and vice versa.

The Preservatory is both an inspiring combination of traditional techniques and creative ideas and a celebration of locally grown food, seasonal cooking, and enjoying life with family and friends.
