Cedar + Salt – Vancouver Island Recipes from Field, Forest, Farm and Sea
Cedar + Salt is a Homegrown book. Fileld with modern recipes that feature the most treasured local ingredients from Vancouver Island’s field, forest, farm, and sea.
Off the shore of Canada’s west coast lies a food lover’s island paradise. Vancouver Island’s temperate climate nurtures a bounty of wild foods, heritage grains, organic produce, sustainable meats, and artisan-crafted edible delights.
This thoughtfully curated, beautifully photographed cookbook brings Vancouver Island’s abundant food scene into the kitchens of home cooks everywhere. While celebrating such treasures such as fresh blackberries, foraged chanterelles and fiddleheads, freshly harvested spot prawns or oysters, line-caught spring salmon, grass-fed beef, and cultivated foods like heritage red fife wheat, the book’s recipes highlight the most sought-after ingredients on the island and honor the producers and artisans dedicated to sustainable and ethical producing and harvesting. This book is filled with recipes and stories, all photographed by DL Acken and created by the Eat Creative team.
Try recipes like Nettle and Chèvre Ravioli, and Beetroot and Black Walnut Cake featuring Denman Island Chocolate. Divided into four sections—forest, field, farm, and sea—Cedar and Salt puts the taste of Vancouver Island on a pedestal and then brings it to your plate.
