Book Description

Sept. 26 2006
Greg Atkinson has been lauded and profiled nationally for his accomplishments as a chef. But he says that he really cooks to support his writing habit. Both of those attributes come together in this comprehensive cookbook that expresses the culinary styles and ingredients and trends of the whole West Coast. Alaska has amazing seafood—wild salmon, halibut, and black cod. The Northwest native grilling technique of grilling with flavorful wood planks hails from this region. Vancouver, BC, with its international crossroads status, brings amazing East Indian dishes that have been tempered with local ingredients. The Asian cuisine—noodles, roasted duck, and soy sauce and ginger—presents yet another tasty direction to pursue. And on down the coast: the Bay Area offers up a whole array of fresh tastes from the epicenter of sustainable local producers. California also brings forth the Latino influence, one of America’s true indigenous cuisines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing cake recipes! Dec 14 2009
By Cassandra Fish - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I received this cookbook as a Christmas gift last year from my sister who lives in Seattle. As I live in the midwest, I thought there wouldn't be a lot of recipes I could use daily. I was WRONG! This cookbook has some of the most outstanding recipes in more categories than almost any in my collection. The cake recipes, which are pre-world war two (translation, magical, yummy, fool proof concotions), inspired me to not ony conquer my fear of the layer cake, but to trimumph and pull out my great grandmother's cake stand! I love this cookbook! Atkinson has a wonderful writing style he uses to begin each chapter that makes this cookbook more than just a collection of recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Any West Coast cookbook collection - indeed, any who love regional cookbooks - will love WEST COAST COOKING. Feb. 2 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
From wild salmon from Alaska to Washington apples and mushrooms, chef and food writer Greg Atkinson explores the entire length of the West Coast and its culinary specialties, providing cookbook that is part history and part recipe collection. Here are nearly four hundred dishes, from Grilled Tuna Steaks with Papaya Lime to Chicken Enchiladas - many offering personal reflections, culinary insight, and the author's gift for description. Don't expect the flowery color photos so many cookbooks hold - do expect the flowery language so many leave out. Any West Coast cookbook collection - indeed, any who love regional cookbooks - will love WEST COAST COOKING.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best NW cookbook Oct. 21 2011
By Michelle F. - Published on Amazon.com
This book is so freaking awesome. Delicious recipes using local NW ingredients and written in an easy-to-follow sort of way. Gerald's lemon chicken is the best simple chicken recipe I've ever tried.
