Memorable Mornings from the Strawberry Creek Inn

Our 11" by 11" souvenir coffee-table cookbook, Memorable Mornings, is now available! Subtitled 'Classic recipes for breakfast and brunch entertaining with a slight Southern drawl and a Caribbean twist (of lime!)', this handcrafted labor of love is more than just a cookbook.

As the title and subtitle suggest, Memorable Mornings is filled with recipes and tips for the almost lost art of entertaining for breakfast or brunch. That's what we do every morning, so it only seemed fitting that a cookbook from us would contain what we have learned over the years about the subject.

Also, as many of you know, we had the opportunity to partner with Breadline Productions to shoot an independent film at the Strawberry Creek Inn. The central role that food played in From Grace was the impetus (in addition to your requests over the years) for us to finally put together a cookbook. Throughout the book are recipes featured in the film, pictures from the film shoot, and other behind-the-scenes stories.

Even if your copy of the book never makes it anywhere near your kitchen, it will also perform beautifully as a memento of your time with us, with a decided focus on the culinary aspects of your stay. Each recipe is accompanied by a stunning, mouth-watering full-page photograph, beautifully shot by Sandra Hale of Inn Cuisine and Sandra Hale Photography, and also by our personal stories about each recipe.

In case you want still more juicy details about the film or the book, click here for a few book spreads and an excerpt from the book.
