“My Nova Scotia Cookbook” by Chanelle Jefferson

About the Book...

My Nova Scotia Cookbook provides a delicious selection of Nova Scotia favourites for all cooks – beginner to experienced. This cookbook is a collection of recipes from Chanelle’s personal-favourite cook: Nana. Other recipes were provided by professional local chefs, family members, and other Nova Scotian’s who just, well… know how to cook.

Chanelle Jefferson's whimsical drawings illustrate aspects of each recipe, making it easy for readers to break down and prepare these Atlantic dishes.

About the Author & Illustrator...

Chanelle Jefferson is a born and bred Nova Scotian artist raised on fresh seafood, and leafy greens. She displayed an early passion for the arts that led her to study International Baccalaureate (IB) art classes in high school and pursue visual arts workshops in her free time. She currently works as an illustrator, painter and printmaker, while operating her business where she sells and distributes her works.  

While she may be a small-town artist, Chanelle has experienced life in various parts of the world: from backpacking in Western Europe and boating across the Mediterranean, to road tripping across Canada and living in the creative centre of Montréal, Quebec where she studies Studio Arts and Environmental Science at Concordia University. Chanelle has received many opportunities, honours and awards that attest to her widespread creative talent. 

During the summer months, Chanelle can be found selling her artworks throughout communities and farmers markets in Nova Scotia, working in and alongside creative organizations, or relaxing oceanside with friends and family.
