Hi I’m Shannon Murphy and I am a foodie enthusiast whose life revolves around all things delicious! An avid cook, baker and traveller, no matter where I am or what I’m doing I think about food!
After decade of working in the financial world, I decided to follow my passions and focus on the best that food has to offer – whether that be in my own kitchen, up at the lake, in local restaurants, around the world or arm-deep in gardens.
A city girl at heart, I love the fast pace of living in Toronto where there is endless stimulation, however I am also blessed with the ability to escape to our beautiful family cottage where the stress of the city falls away.
Missing the tranquility of the lake while in the city and missing the fast pace of the city while up at the lake I realized I could bring together the best of both worlds with food – appreciating that no matter where you are, food brings us together and allows us to connect with loved ones, ourselves and our environments.
And hence, City Eats & Cottage Treats was born – providing me with the opportunity to share the foodie musings of an urban girl meets cottage world. Enjoy and bon appetite!
