In her forward, Sarah McLachlan names SoBo as one of her favourite restaurants. She writes, “I know this book will become a staple in my kitchen – a way to bring SoBo to me when I cannot get to Tofino and eat at the restaurant itself." How's that for a ringing endorsement? Indeed, this cookbook, hailing from the remote and rugged west coast of Vancouver Island, emphasizes local, seasonal ingredients and casually elegant cuisine.

Short for Sophisticated Bohemian, SoBo began in 2003 as a food truck before moving to a local botanical garden and finally to its current location in downtown Tofino. Here, husband and wife team Artie and Lisa Ahier tell the story of SoBo while paying homage to the region; vignettes of text detail each season in Tofino and anecdotes describe the restaurant's favourite farmers and fishermen.

The vividly photographed 100 recipes highlight the Ahiers' substance-before-style philosophy and encompass every category from breakfast to soups, snacks, mains and desserts. Start the day with flaxseed and ginger pancakes or strawberry lemon scones, then move into crab and goat cheese wontons or scallops with sweet pea risotto cakes. No matter which you choose, these simple but refined recipes will please both eyes and tastebuds.
