Blue Water Café Seafood
Douglas & McIntyre
Blue Water Café + Raw Bar is a seafood hub nestled in Vancouver, a food-loving waterfront city with a wealth of fresh, local fish to supply the restaurant. By combining Western and Eastern seafood traditions between its restaurant and raw bar, Blue Water allows for the greatest variety of menu options to accommodate the day’s catch. And in their recently published cookbook, chefs Frank Pabst and Yoshihiro Tabo bring these menu options to the page, offering up recipes for over eighty of the restaurant’s dishes. Beyond the standard fish, shellfish, and raw bar sections, the book offers very timely chapter on the “Unsung Heroes” of seafood, those under-explored species of fish who could replace the overfished, underpopulated species on a sustainable restaurant menu. Gorgeous photographs, wine pairing suggestions, and a sophisticated, globe-trotting roster of recipes make this seafood cookbook a serious catch.

Fresh From Maine: Recipes and Stories from the State’s Best Chefs
Table Arts Media
The editor of Fresh From Maine: Recipes and Stories from the State’s Best Chefs wants you to come to visit Maine. What’s his pitch? The culinary scene is thriving. Young chefs can easily make their living with a low cost, high quality lifestyle that is available, in abundance, in Maine. Provide these chefs with the local seafood and organic farming that have always been Maine traditions and you’ve got all the ingredients for great restaurants. The book is divided by region: Sanders takes the reader up the coast restaurant by restaurant, chef by chef, and recipe by recipe. Some of the recipes look good, others look fantastic. The Hand-made gnocchi from Town Hill Bistro look delicious—and the Bang Island Mussels with Great Hill Blue Cheese at Anneke Jans look out of this world. But that’s the point the book wants to make: the dish isn’t out of this world—it’s from Maine. Sure, you can try and reproduce the experience at home. But better to let Maine make it for you!
