Welcome to the Cafe Maplethorpe Blog!
“Maplethorpe” is the name of our house, built in the 1860′s by the first Postmaster of Bedeque, Major Wright. Yes, at first we thought it odd that someone would give a house a name, but why not?
This is the story of an American family that chose Prince Edward Island in 2002, and have been working since then toward a sustainable organic lifestyle for our home and business. Our goal is to chronicle our life on “the gentle island” month by month throughout the year with a special focus on the food of Prince Edward Island.
We invite you to share our stories, post some of your own, try our recipes and pass along your thoughts.
