Short for Sophisticated Bohemian, SoBo began in 2003 as a food truck before moving to a local botanical garden and finally to its current location in downtown Tofino. Here, husband and wife team Artie and Lisa Ahier tell the story of SoBo while paying homage to the region; vignettes of text detail each season in Tofino and anecdotes describe the restaurant's favourite farmers and fishermen.
The vividly photographed 100 recipes highlight the Ahiers' substance-before-style philosophy and encompass every category from breakfast to soups, snacks, mains and desserts. Start the day with flaxseed and ginger pancakes or strawberry lemon scones, then move into crab and goat cheese wontons or scallops with sweet pea risotto cakes. No matter which you choose, these simple but refined recipes will please both eyes and tastebuds.
this is a book for the shelf where you keep the very few you won't part with. Where has Lisa Ahier been? All over, and here is her cooking life in recipes that respect the best in fresh-sourced food with a double dash of imagination.
Chicken Enchiladas are the greatest thing ever, although fairly labour intensive.
