Like our recipes? You can buy the book! The Flavours of the West Coast cookbook is the winner of the 2011 Gourmand International Cookbook Award in the “Best Local Cuisine” category. Divided into tasty sections—River and Sea, Forest and Field, Farm Fresh, and City Cuisine—the pages are filled with photos and recipes by talented foodies and chefs who all have one thing in common: a love of fresh, locally inspired cuisine and a desire to share that love with the at-home cook.

Including recipes from British Columbia’s top restaurateurs, chefs, and foodies, the cookbook aims to support the farmers, chefs, and food producers who make the local food scene possible.
