Together at SoBo

This new cookbook by Chef Lisa Ahier features more recipes and stories from Tofino’s Beloved Restaurant and was recently released by publisher Appetite by Random House.

I attended a wonderful cookbook launch party held at Tap & Barrel Bridges that was emcee by Terry David Mulligan with many of chef Lisa’s friends in the room. Tasty bites were served of recipes featured in the cookbook as well a couple from her first cookbook that included the famous salmon chowder along with the halloumi sliders.

To know Tofino is to know SoBo, the restaurant at the heart of this magnetic West Coast surf town. Since opening as a purple food truck 20 years ago, SoBo (short for “sophisticated bohemian”) has been bringing people together with Chef Lisa Ahier’s fresh West Coast fare. Year after year, locals and visitors alike return for her killer cooking and the relaxed warmth that can only be found here. Bring home this new slice of SoBo to share with your loved ones.

In Together at SoBo, Chef Lisa Ahier shares all-new recipes from her beloved restaurant. Lisa’s recipes are love letters to Tofino and its position as the most westerly point of Canada. Drawing from local produce and a wealth of seafood, these are Pacific Northwest recipes enhanced by Lisa’s Southern flair.

The books are now available in bookstores coast to coast as well as bookstores online.
