The City of St. Petersburg’s Healthy St. Pete initiative has partnered with local restaurants to create the “St. Pete Eats: A Cookbook”, a collection of St. Pete’s favorite flavors, prepared with health in mind with Deputy Mayor Dr. Kanika Tomalin, City Administrator.
The cookbook gives at-home cooks a taste of the flavors that can be found throughout St. Pete’s food scene—with a healthier spin.
“We’re so fortunate to live in a city that overflows with flavor and epicurean experiences. It’s my mission as St. Pete’s Deputy Mayor and City Administrator to infuse those flavors with delicious, healthy options, through Healthy St. Pete,” said Dr. Tomalin. “In this cookbook, I’ve shared some of my own favorite recipes, and have enlisted the expertise of some of St. Pete’s finest chefs to give you an authentic culinary experience that can only be found in St. Pete.”
Healthy St. Pete is a city-wide community engagement and empowerment initiative that helps the community eat, live, shop, and play healthier. Healthy St. Pete’s mission is to create a culture of health in the city and make the healthy choice the easy choice, and the City’s creation of this cookbook aims to assist with that.
St. Pete Eats will be released to the public on Friday, July 17th, and can be purchased from stpeteeats.org or directly from participating local St. Pete businesses.
Proceeds from cookbooks purchased from the website will go towards the City of St. Petersburg’s Fighting Chance Fund, which provides grants to locally-owned and independently-operated small businesses and their employees that have been negatively impacted due to COVID-19. More information can be found at stpete.org/fightingchancefund
Proceeds from cookbooks purchased at participating local businesses will go directly to the local business. For a list of locations with books for sale, visit stpeteeats.org
