Book Description

Aug. 22 2008

Great recipes from a celebrated resort.

Whitewater Resort in the Canadian Rockies is renowned for its spectacular scenery, deep snow and Fresh Tracks Café. Despite constant pleading from customers, recipes for dishes made famous there were as unattainable as snowflakes in July. Even the café staff was sworn to secrecy. Now, Whitewater Cooks opens the kitchen doors.

With this eagerly anticipated book, home cooks can re-create chef Shelley Adams' signature dishes. Readers will enjoy over 70 recipes from the café's selection of top sellers -- from warming soups to desserts -- indulging in such culinary favorites as:

  • Whiskey-smoked salmon chowder
  • Ymir curry bowl
  • Whitewater veggie burger
  • Runaway train wrap
  • Peppercorn, brandy and gorgonzola sauce
  • Crackle top snowy mountain cookies
  • Whitewater brownies.

Whitewater Resort is internationally recognized for its alpine scenery and the fine quality of its food. Now home cooks everywhere can share its most celebrated dishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Jan. 18 2007
I've never eaten at Whitewater but spend my winters in nearby Rossland BC. I've noticed that there is a regional "Kootenay cuisine" and this cookbook is a great example of it. Its kind of an ultra glorified hippie cuisine unlike food anywhere else. There are a lot of asian and mideastern influences, tahini, soy etc. Also lots of vegetarian influences though now you find meat everywhere. It may have developed out of the tree planting camps where the cooks found the old vegetarian fare just wasn't quite enough for a group of hard working tree planters.

My husband and I have tried quite a few recipes from this book and highly recommend it. Lots of intense flavors, interesting food.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't stop cooking Sept. 20 2006
By Dani
My husband brought this gem back for me after a recent ski vacation to the Kootneys. Seems like a raw deal, he got to ski and I get a cookbook. No way! This is the best cookbook ever! I cook a lot and have many cookbooks but I have never been so pleased with so many recipes. Nice to look at, easy to use and delicious meals in no time. My best buddies who love to ski and cook will all be getting this book for upcoming birthdays. The Chili Con Carne is to die for, not to mention the Torta Rustica. Bravo Shelley Adams. This year we are planning another ski trip. This time I am going and you can bet I will be skiing and eating at Whitewater Mountain. As for my husband, he can't believe he got to ski, have a wife whom was pleased with his gift AND he continues to enjoying Whitewater meals in our cozy kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book - your life will change! March 5 2011
This is simply the best cookbook available (just as good as the other one this author wrote). The food is easy to make, full of flavour, and always pleases everyone at my table. I have dozens of cookbooks and love to cook, but this book is the only one I ever use anymore. Words cannot describe how great the book is - just buy it, start cooking, and thank me later.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my Go-To Cookbooks March 14 2010
I have family who lives in Nelson and have visited Whitewater Ski Resort many times - the food is always ridiculously good, so it just made sense to buy this cookbook. It is a bit more expensive than other cookbooks I have, but this cookbook has quickly become one of my favorites and I often buy it for gifts for people. I've made many of the recipes - the Ymir Curry Bowl, Lemony Lentil Soup, the Glory Bowl and the Potato Salad with Mustard Dill Dressing to name a few of my favorites (the sauce for the Glory Bowl is addictive and I'm constantly trying to come up with new ways to use it) - all have been delicious! The Whitewater Veggie Burgers are also a favorite - but with the Famous Burger Sauce, it sends them over the edge! The veggie burger recipe makes a lot, but they freeze beautifully. I just purchased the second cookbook, Whitewater Cooks at Home, so once I've made a couple recipes, I'll review that as well. I wouldn't say any of the recipes are dinner on the table in 10 minutes, but are great for weekends or when you have a bit more time to prepare.

5.0 out of 5 stars My FAVOURITE cookbook ever! July 30 2010
I live in the Kootenays and I am an avid cook. I consistently try new recipes weekly and have compiled a literal library of cookbooks and cooking magazines. This is by far my favourite cookbook with incredibly delicious dishes. The first dish I tried was the Torta Rustica...a layered dish of tortillas, roasted vegetables and sauces that knocked my socks off. I begged my friend for the recipe and when he showed me the book I rushed straight out and purchased it at the local store that carries it. I have since noticed that it turns up in the kitchens of almost all of the locals here in town. The reviews are always rave. I was employed as the cook at a local backcountry ski lodge for a week, and the baggage allowance on the helicopter in was very limited. I was limited to two cookbooks so I chose this one and another of my own that is a compilation of my fav recipes over the years. Upon arrival at the rustic lodge I discovered that it was one of the few cookbooks that the regular cook already had up there for reference!!!!

Don't hesitate. Buy it and then buy it for everyone you know when you are looking for a perfect gift. The secret is out so we might as well shout it from the rooftops.

A proud Kootenay Cook cooking proudly from a Kootenay Cookbook!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Delicious Food! Jan. 1 2008
By L. Owen
I've made about eight or ten of the recipes in this cookbook, and they have all been easy to make and absolutely delicious! The recipes are uncomplicated -- they generally require only common household ingredients or ones that are easy to find, and preparation is simple and quick. Despite their simplicity, however, these recipes are good enough to impress at a dinner party. I'm a fan of cookbooks from restaurants, as the recipes have been tested in "real world" conditions. Whitewater Cooks is one of my favourite restaurant cookbooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love that most of the recipes are from scratch July 11 2014
By george
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After trying several of the recipes at a friend's home, I asked for the name of the cookbook. I love that most of the recipes are from scratch, a definite must have if you are a "foodie". It's great to see a book that focuses on what BC has to offer...great food and the spectacular outdoors.
