Product Description

Mouthwatering cookbooks that showcase stories and recipes from the best local restaurants, bars, breweries, cafés, and more.

Recipes direct from the chefs of some of Vancouver's greatest restaurants. Ranging from simple everyday family meals to challenges that will push your culinary dexterity, from decadent and hearty to healthy and nutritious.

As much coffee table books as recipe books, these are cookbooks that tell the stories behind Vancouver and area's thriving dining scene.

Gastown: The neighborhood where Vancouver first set its roots is now home to some of its most celebrated restaurants and foodie businesses.

Given that its very name is derived from social interaction and one of Vancouver's most famous historical characters, Gassy Jack, Gastown’s renaissance in the past couple of decades is like coming full circle. To ‘gas’ meant to chat and socialize in 1800’s parlance and Gassy Jack was the affable proprietor of Vancouver's first saloon.

Today Gastown is probably the first neighborhood people around the world will name when asked about Vancouver. And rightly so; its blend of historical charm and the buzz of a thriving modern inner urban focal point is exciting, inspiring and unique. This comes through in its food too.

The Gastown Foodie is a snapshot of the foodie culture of Gastown in stories, recipes and images. It’s a guide to great places to eat and drink in Gastown but also offers the back-stories and inspiration behinds its foodie businesses.
