Product Description


.Divided into four sections on local food, international flavours, emerging talents and BC pioneers in the culinary arts, [Vancouver Cooks 2] offers a delicious taste of innovation in west-coast kitchens with beautifully photographed dishes, some more ambitious than others, from marinated sablefish roasted just until the flesh is barely opaque, to frighteningly rich pork belly with the exotic flavours of orange and tamarind, to lavender-crusted shortcake with summer thyme macerated fruit and berries.. (Ottawa Citizen 2009-11-19)

.With contributions from 70 local chefs, Vancouver Cooks 2 is full of recipes that are designed to impress. The second Vancouver Cooks book from the Chefs' Table Society of B.C. features contributions from pioneers like John Bishop and a new generation of talent, including Melissa Craig from Whistler's Bearfoot Bistro. Most of these recipes are...for leisurely days when you want to re-create the tastes of Boneta or DB Bistro Moderne at home rather than eating out.. (Georgia Straight 2009-10-15)

.The recipes in [Vancouver Cooks 2] are as varied as its contributors -- you'll find a double chocolate chip cookie recipe next to one for halibut cheek congee. With 60 gorgeous colour photos along with wine pairings, featuring many fine B.C. wines, this is a cookbook that pulls together the very best of that province -- really, the very best of Canada.. (Food Network Canada 2009-11-17)

.Vancouver Cooks 2 is an important addition to the Canadian cookbook library. By marrying international influences to local and sustainable ingredients, Vancouver chefs have created a blueprint for a unique regional cuisine to which all Canadian food lovers should pay attention.. (Cuisine Canada Scene 2011-01-04)

.A classy, updated release of Vancouver Cooks, launched five years ago mirrors perfectly Vancouver's food scene. I can just see veterans John Bishop oven braising a festive venison ragout preceded by Fanny Bay Oyster soup and Tojo's inspired Japanese touch with sablefish...The book's unsung hero is Joan Cross, Vancouver 2's recipe editor. She's done a cracker-jack job of testing and tackling the daunting task of adapting seventy chefs' dishes for the home cook. A perfect gift for your the out-of-town guest whose best memories of travel are through its cuisine.. (Eat Magazine 2010-12-19)

.For anyone with a passion for plates, the original Vancouver Cooks cookbook, compiled as an initiative of the Chefs' Table Society of BC, was a must for the culinary collection. With the recent launch of Vancouver Cooks 2, that gem of epicurean publishing has been surpassed with over 100 table-tested recipes from over 70 knife-sharp chefs province-wide. What emerges is an honours class for the home cook -- both a loving homage to BC's top toques and a compendium of fool proof table toppers. Replete with contributions from Vancouver, Whistler, the Okanagan Valley and Vancouver Island, Vancouver Cooks 2 is a timely reminder of the seasonal sustenance that fuels the inspirations of our culinary vanguards.. (The Able Table 2009-12-13)

dont bother buying this book if you have the first book on Vancouver cooks. They have tried too hard to duplicate the success of the first book

I have the original Vancouver Cooks and appreciate the many diverse recipes, so when the Vancouver Cooks 2 became available, I had to buy it also. I like to read cookbooks like novels, as well as for the recipes, and I find this one meets both criteria.
