Flavours of Vancouver
Dishes From Around the WorldBook - 2005
As one of the most culturally diverse cities on the continent, Vancouver is home to people from all around the world -- and to their favourite foods.
Flavours of Vancouver is a sublime collection of recipes gathered from the Lower Mainland's CBC Radio listeners. Some are traditional family specialties, others mix a particular culinary heritage with local ingredients to create a uniquely West Coast taste sensation. Family recipes from some of Vancouver's top chefs add spice notes along the way, and each of the recipes is accompanied by a tale about the dish's origins. The contents of this charming cookbook are as diverse as Vancouver's citizens themselves. Explore the cultural heritage of Greater Vancouver through the recipes and stories of the people who live here. Some of the proceeds from the sales of this book will go to Save the Children Canada.
