The Lighthouse Cookbook - Recipes from Heceta Head Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast




I spent the weekend at a book signing on the Oregon Coast at The Heceta Head Lighthouse B&B. I discovered this unique and charming location on assignment for RCI Endless Vacation Magazine a few years back. It was one of our stops on a whale watching story that took us from Canon Beach to Florence. The B&B is not only known for its charm, but the incredible seven course breakfast prepared with recipes from Michelle and Carol Korgan. I not only fell in love with the magic of Heceta's beauty, but the food as well. Michelle and I discussed the possibility of working on a cookbook together and after several trips North and even more hours in the kitchen, we are happy to say it is here. If you are interested in purchasing a signed copy, please email us at the studio, Luis@mantoani.com or ring 619-543-9959. Price is $28 + shipping.



For more information on booking a stay at the Heceta Head Lighthouse B&B, visit http://hecetalighthouse.com. There are only 6 rooms so book your trip in advance. You will love it!



The white building on the right side of this image is the B&B. Heceta, is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world due to this amazing vista on highway 101.





Yep, I shoot food too!

Greetings from Georgia!

I happened upon your website because I read that you were the author of Understanding the Canon Speedlite. I thought I'd check out your blog and was so excited to see your Heceta Head Lighthouse B&B Cookbook. My husband and I stayed at the B&B when Mike and Carol Korgan were the innkeepers in 2001. We had the most amazing time and looked forward to each morning when we would be served the most delectable seven course breakfasts made with the finest local ingredients. We loved listening to Mike and Carol tell interesting stories of their work at the lighthouse as well as their previous experiences as restaurant owners in Portland.
I think about going back all the time, but haven't yet been able to make that trip from Georgia. :)
Among my favorite dishes they served were a blueberry frappe, and sliced apples topped with Tillamook cheddar cheese and drizzled with honey. YUM. From what I can see here - your photos are gorgeous (I shoot food too and it's my dream to someday shoot for a cookbook). I can't wait to get a copy of your book.
Glad I found your website.
