Mountain +Valley + Ocean – Araxi’s Elegant yet Easily Approachable Cookbook Champions the Seasons and Its Locale

Whistler, B.C. – From the pans of Whistler’s famed Araxi Restaurant and executive chef James Walt, to the pages of Araxi’s new cookbook, come seasonal recipes accessible to the home cook, and packed with regional flavours of ranch, field and sea.

Available at fine booksellers on October 3rd or online now, Araxi: Seasonal Recipes from the Celebrated Whistler Restaurant, champions its locale in Whistler’s two distinct seasons: summer and winter.

Already, the book has received high praise from fellow chefs, and repeat guests of the restaurant, Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal. “What a book to have! Inspiring and creative–a must-have ingredient in any kitchen,” says Ramsay. “This book is full of the attention to detail, freshness and passion that makes eating at Araxi so special,” says Blumenthal.

A special harvest menu section showcases the region’s bounty with a tasting menu based exclusively on items grown, produced and harvested within 100 miles of the restaurant, epitomizing Araxi’s commitment to local, seasonal food and to the food and wine-producing communities that support the restaurant all year round.

Published by Douglas & McIntyre, also featured are more than 100 photographs by noted culinary photographer John Sherlock, as well as companion text by Jim Tobler, illustrating the essence of the place, and the talented team that has built the restaurant’s international reputation.
