Description: The last decade has seen big changes in the way North Americans are cooking, eating, and shopping for food. One of the most significant new trends is the rediscovery of the public market, which combines the best of old-fashioned personal food selection and contemporary eating habits -- fresh, light, uncomplicated fare for a health-conscious public.
The Granville Island Public Market in Vancouver, with its forty-three permanent merchants and scores of "day tables" for growers and craftspeople from the region, has been a successful pioneer in the market phenomenon in British Columbia. Soon after it opened in 1979, it became known as the best place in town for fresh produce, seafood, meat, cheese, bakery goods, and specialty foods.
Now, from two of the merchants who have worked there from the beginning, Judie Glick of Fraser Valley Produce and Fiona McLeod of Duso's, comes The Granville Island Market Cookbook, a collection of over 150 recipes from the authors' own kitchens and from those of their friends and colleagues at the market. Arranged seasonally to reflect the availability of ingredients, the book includes plenty of information on the foods themselves -- where they come from, where to find them, and how to select them. This is an indispensible book for both the beginning cook and the gourmet chef, and it comes to you from the experts -- the Granville Island "marketeers."
Condition: Good condition.
