Format: Paperback
Whether you know Don Genova from his classes at Cook Culture, his CBC Radio segment "Food Matters" or his popular blog, you can't dispute his authority when it comes to local food artisans. Indeed, his first book, "Food Artisans of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands" brings together a collection of stories behind the most skillfully, lovingly crafted edibles on the Islands.

Handily, Genova provides detailed maps of the six regions covered in his book: The Comox Valley, Cowichan Valley, Gulf Islands, Naniamo, Saanich Peninsula and Greater Victoria. He separates "Food Artisans" into categorized chapters such as bakeries, butchers, chocolate, coffee/tea and seafood and profiles each business in a friendly, conversational tone. Genova has personally visited each featured establishment and shares first-hand experience to inspire readers to shop locally.

Colour photos by Genova and Stephen Hawkins as well as interspersed, tempting recipes make "Food Artisans" an indispensable resource for those seeking culinary bliss in their own backyards.

Because I live in Saanichton and try to eat locally when convenient and good, this book provides me with very good information about locally produced products. Also, I like to make trips up Island and to the Gulf Islands so I will be taking this book with me. I suspect this is the kind of book which will need to be updated as new 'food artisans" come on stream.
