About this book
Vancouver's Granville Island Public Market, established in 1979, is one of Canada's largest and most popular public markets. Featuring over fifty food retailers and day vendors, the Public Market is the main draw at Granville Island, which also features art galleries, retail shops, a live theatre, a hotel, and an art school as well as a functioning cement company, making it one of the biggest
tourist attractions in a city that is regularly ranked as one of the world's top destinations by Condé Nast Traveler.
The New Granville Island Market Cookbook features a bounty of recipes using fresh produce, gourmet meats, wild seafood, artisanal cheeses, fresh pasta, and other goods found at this or any other public market offering quality,healthful, seasonal foods. Full-colour throughout, the book also includes lively food photos, Market snapshots, and profiles of the Market's dedicated vendors, several of
whom have been purveying their wares for many years.Taking off from the original bestselling Granville Island
Market Cookbook (published twenty-seven years ago, in 1985), this brand-new collection comments on changes
in food culture since the first book was released, and features such market-fresh recipes as barbecued leg of lamb, penne with spot prawns, Nicoise sandwich,
orange and pomegranate salad, and roasted figs.
This beautiful cookbook offers readers delectable, fresh, and healthy recipes for every month of the year while
providing vibrant and engaging portraits of life "at the Market."
I've loved the original edition of this cookbook since its release in 1985. This new book is a wonderful resource to have when shopping at Granville Island or any other great public market.
Susan Mendelson, The Lazy Gourmet
The Granville Island Public Market is a treasure and a gift, not just for chefs like me but for home cooks and all the visitors to this wonderful place, with its amazing displays of fresh foods and the special people like Judie and Carol who have helped make it so successful.
John Bishop, proprietor of Bishop's restaurant in Vancouver
This cookbook is chock-o-block full of recipes for nearly every product you can find at the market. They also tap into the vast wealth of knowledge of the men and women behind the market's counters.
—The West Ender
This is a great souvenir of Vancouver's terrific Granville Island Public Market ... Even if you're not heading to the West Coast of Canada, the book is a useful guide to cooking with the kind of seasonal produce that you'll find in your local farmers' market.
