Following the direction outlined in the recent notice from the University, effective immediately the UPEI Bookstore will be closed until further notice, in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
For anyone requiring resources/materials for their courses for the current semester, there is the option of ebooks/access codes for select courses via our website.
Please visit https://upei.bookware3000.ca/Course/campus to shop for these materials. Email delivery will be provided.
Please note, you will only receive your access code once the order is processed, and orders will only be processed periodically, so we ask for your patience with this matter.
Unfortunately at this time, the store is not open, and shipping is unavailable so physical textbooks, clothing and school supplies are not available.
Please contact bookstore@upei.ca for any questions.


 
 

A Taste Of Islands


?This book is a journey to some of the world?s many and diverse islands, captured in signature dishes and between pages.?
Grant McCall, President, International Small Islands Studies Association (ISISA)

Food is the social jelly of our lives. We make new friends and consolidate existing ones around meals; we use food to mark events in our lives; we share in our joys and sorrows by breaking bread together.
There is a connection between certain food and where it comes from. Can there be a North American thanksgiving without turkey and pumpkin pie? Or a Dragon Boat Festival in China without zhong-zi? Mexico without tapas? India without curry?
Besides the standard information necessary to these 60 delicious recipes from islands all over the world ? their ingredients and method of preparation ? editors Anna and Godfrey Baldacchino elaborate on what each signature dish tells us about its island: its historical-anthropological story.
