The Murray family has been farming the land in Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s, Newfoundland and Labrador for 200 years. That original subsistence family farm has evolved into Murray’s Garden Centre, Murray Meadows Farm, and The Grounds Café—a farm-to-table restaurant and favourite brunch and lunch destination serving up bright, creative meals and decadent baked goods.
This eye-catching book features dozens of recipes by chef Nick van Mele, whose dishes have made The Grounds Café a destination for enjoying locally-sourced food made from the freshest locally grown crops.
As you travel through the farm year in this book, you’ll meet many of the farmers, foragers, foodies, and friends that have become the Murray’s community.
