Following the success of last year’s North Shore Foodie Book, publisher Brad Hill is at it again! The East Van Foodie Book in out just time for the holidays, featuring 47 restaurants, over 100 locally-inspired recipes, and 1,000 photos of East Van’s unique dishes and dining spaces.
East Van Foodie Book
A very real celebration of East Van and its food and drink.
The restaurants, bars, cafes, breweries and foodie businesses that nourish East Van influence the whole city, province and country. The East Van Foodie tells their stories in words, photos and recipes.
East Van occupies the fringe zone between downtown and the suburbs. It’s a crossroads. It’s a lived-in, mixed-use, gentrifying, cultural nexus, and a canvas on which the next generation asserts itself. It is a neighbourhood and the geographical focal point of a greater discussion.
One of the great indicators of a rich and dynamic cultural and artistic community is the food it serves, so documenting its food is at the heart of documenting the community. The East Van Foodie is a snapshot of a place in time and of the food it eats.
East Van Foodies is available for purchase at the 47 participating East Van restaurants and at various local bookstores including Chapters Indigo, Barbara Jo’s Books to Cooks, Cook Culture, and Welk’s General Store.
Photography, recipes, editing, design and publishing by Brad Hill, and participant stories by Chris Dagenais.
