Our Stories Our food: Edmonton’s Comfort Foods

Our brand new cookbook! In the days following March 11 of 2020, words like ‘unprecedented’, ‘challenging’ and the ‘new normal’ defined human existence. Yet through these moments of profound grief came stories of resilience and hope as neighbours, businesses, and strangers came together in creative ways to uplift their communities. Edmontonians redefined comfort through innovation; from virtual dinner dates to drive-by birthday celebrations, we found new ways to stay connected while staying six feet apart. Over the past two years, Converse and Cook focused on telling this story by creating an Edmonton community-wide comfort food cookbook. We hope that through cultivating these stories and recipes, we can capture the history of what happened in Edmonton during the pandemic, while also providing a source of comfort and hope to those feeling isolated and disconnected in our city.

This cookbook features over 50 stories and recipes from Edmontonians (including local non-profits and businesses)! 100% of proceeds goes towards Converse and Cook being able to run free and low-cost food programming for all Edmontonians. Cookbooks are $20.00 dollars and shipping is $15.00. If shipping comes to less we will refund you. If we’re able to do contactless delivery for free based on your address we will also let you know and refund the shipping cost. If you’d like to purchase multiple email us at info@conversecook.com.
