Book Launch The Plant-Based Foodie Cookbook October 27th At Riley Park Farmers Market

22 Oct

PlantBasedFoodieCoverBrad Hill, creator of a series of Foodie cookbooks officially launches The Plant-Based Foodie Cookbook this Saturday at Riley Park Farmers Market.  More people are looking to add plant-based foods to their diet, whether it is for health, taste or ethical reasons. It’s a flourishing area in the world of food which means there are some innovative and delicious plant-based foods now available in Vancouver. The Plant-Based Foodie -Vancouver cookbook explores the stories and recipes of the restaurants and foodie businesses behind this boom.

Hot on the heels of The North Shore Foodie, The East Van Foodie, and The Gastown Foodie, Foodie Book series creator, Brad Hill, has changed things up and focused on vegan and vegetarian restaurants from across Vancouver. The book features a thorough showcase of Vancouver’s veggie venues, from the casual comfort of MeeT restaurants to the roots of Vancouver’s veggie scene at The Naam, to the polished perfection of the Acorn and Heirloom, plus everything in between.

Creators of the book say that the 27 restaurants that were selected in this book represent the most influential, exciting, and progressive plant-based cuisine in the city.  It showcases the restaurant’s stories, written by food writer Chris Dagenais, snapshots in time and engaging vignettes that focus on the ‘why’ of the businesses, not just the who, what, when, where. There are recipes from each restaurant that is presented. The recipes range from a decadent hearty comfort food to light healthy meals that provide perfectly balanced nutrition.  Brad Hill adds beautiful photography of the recipes as well as the restaurants featured in The Plant-Based Foodie Cookbook.

You are invited to stop by this Saturday for the book launch from Noon to 2:00 pm at Riley Park Farmers Market. The book creators will be on hand along with some delicious plant-based finger food. If you can’t make the book launch, check out Where To Buy the cookbook online or instore.
