Book Week: White Spot Cookbook

Comments 75 by Rebecca Bollwitt

It’s Book Week this week on as I start a giveaway for a cool BC book each day. Today’s featured book is the White Spot Cookbook, which is available now at White Spot restaurant location.

White Spot Cookbook

This 160 page cookbook features 50-60 recipes along with the history of the restaurant for its 85th anniversary.

The White Spot Cookbook is a visually-rich collection of memories and recipes conveying the spirit of the legendary restaurant, and its evolution from a single drive-in location in 1928 to a modern family restaurant with more than 65 locations in B.C and Alberta.

Fully illustrated with beautiful food photography, the book features recipes for classic dishes like Chicken Pot Pie and Fish & Chips, as well as contemporary feature entrées like Salmon Prawn & Scallop Risotto – all tailored for the home cook. Experience White Spot’s rich heritage through historical photos and testimonials from long-time staff and celebrities, such as Michael Bublé, Red Robinson, Pat Quinn, and Wayne Cox.

The book covers favourites for each meal of the day however, if you’re looking for the coveted Triple “O” sauce recipe you won’t find it within these pages (I didn’t discover the Caramilk Secret when I visited the Cadbury chocolate factory in Toronto either).
