Covers Released for Toptable Group’s Two New Cookbooks

Araxi_Cookbook_CoverVancouver, B.C.  (May 16th, 2016) – Whistler’s Araxi Restaurant and Vancouver’s CinCin Ristorante will star in colourful, recipe-laden publications later this year and today, Toptable Group has released the striking covers to these cookbooks.

In follow-up to their James Beard–nominated first cookbook, award-winning Executive Chef James Walt and his team share recipes from Araxi Restaurant’s dining room and signature Longtable Dinner events, all adapted for delicious home cooking. Aptly named Araxi: Roots to Shoots, Farm Fresh Recipes, Chef Walt’s book – containing 80 classic recipes complemented by striking photography – is due to hit stores late August.

CinCin_WoodFiredCucina_Cookbook_borderCinCin Ristorante’s renowned Executive Chef Andrew Richardson believes the essence of Italian cuisine is cooking in rhythm with the seasons and allowing fresh, local ingredients to shine. CinCin: Wood Fired Cucina showcases the restaurant’s signature wood-oven cooking techniques and Chef Richardson’s traditional Italian dishes married with seasonal west coast flavours. The internationally acclaimed Argentinean chef, Francis Mallmann, has provided a foreword to the cookbook, which is anticipated to be released in early October.

Both published by Vancouver’s Figure 1 Publishing, Araxi cookbook photography was captured by Page and Paper Studio while CinCin’s book was photographed by Kevin Clark Studios.

The cookbooks will be sold at fine booksellers, including Barbara-Jo’s Books to Cooks in Vancouver, in person at Araxi Restaurant and CinCin Ristorante, and through online retailers such as Indigo Books, where pre-orders are currently being accepted.
