Homegrown, modern recipes that feature the most treasured local ingredients from Vancouver Island’s forests, fields, farms 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 honour the producers and artisans dedicated to sustainable and ethical producing and harvesting.

Try recipes like Craft Beer–Braised Island Beef Brisket, 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.

Editorial Reviews

"As lovers of food and photography, we can’t think of a more inviting activity this season than to hunker down in the kitchen with the newly published, hyper-local Vancouver Island cookbook, Cedar and Salt. (Equally so, ogling and drooling over its pages while cozied up on a comfy chair.)"

— The Islandist

"Acken and Lycopolus are persuasive ambassadors for their beloved Island. Cedar and Salt’s visual food tour, complete with lists of local farmers markets and farm-to-table restaurants, makes it hard to resist a trip to Vancouver Island for a real-life food tour."

— Foreword Reviews

Lush and eloquent . . . Cedar and Salt is among a new breed of regional Canadian explorations. Inextricable from its location, it's a snapshot of a specific food culture with expansive appeal all the same . . . The choice to structure the book by geography coupled with Acken's atmospheric photography gives readers a deeper sense of place."

— Postmedia

"This is a thoughtful cookbook—one for our time, when the food we eat is not just about achieving the best flavour and long-lasting sustenance (though of course those considerations remain a constant), but also when the ingredients we reach for and the food businesses we support are a reflection of how we value our community and how we treat the planet. It offers a quiet call to action and reminds us of the importance of supporting our local food economy. We all have something to gain by strengthening food security . . . and this beautiful book demonstrates that this is certainly not a hardship.”

— EAT Magazine

"It’s easy to be inspired by the terroir on and around Vancouver Island, but Salt Spring Island and Victoria food writers D.L. Acken and Emily Lycopolus do a spectacular job of gathering it all up and putting it on a pedestal . . . unpretentious and completely approachable."

— Globe and Mail
