Twelve years ago, Shelley Adams arrived on the British Columbia book scene with a gorgeous self published cookbook, Whitewater Cooks: Pure, Simple and Real Creations from the Fresh Tracks Cafe. In about a year, the 5,000 copy print run had sold out. Shelley sold her publishing rights for the first book to Whitecap Books, a highly regarded publisher that has since gone on to sell tens of thousands of copies. But when Shelley self published a second book, Whitewater Cooks At Home, and sold 6,000 copies in its first 4 weeks - Shelley decided to form her own publishing company with husband Mike Adams. Since then, two more Whitewater cookbooks have appeared, all with the same distinctive design, flair and super fan following. With over 200,000 copies now sold, the Whitewater Cooks brand has become known nationally for simple, healthy, delicious and fool-proof recipes, many of which have become standards in Canadian households.
Shelley’s long-awaited fifth book released in early December - just in time for Christmas when it jumped to the #1 nationally ranked title by sales among all Book Manager users. It has been on the BC Bestseller List as the #1 title for over 11 weeks and counting...
Whitewater Cooks: More Beautiful Food is full of new recipes to inspire fans and once again turn home cooks into culinary rock stars, a hallmark of Shelley’s earlier books. In the Salad section, try the Grilled Peach, Prosciutto and Burratta Salad, Soba Noodles with Prawns or the Fancy Pants Grilled Caesar Salad. From the Sides and Starters section, choose Cornmeal Crusted Tartes with Caramelized Onions, Fig Jam and Goat Cheese, Mike’s Special Potatoes and/or the Hasselback Yams recipe. For an Entreé - there’s Marsala Chicken with Lentils and Butternut Squash, Spiced Lamb and Halloumi Meatballs or the Texas Style Beef Brisket to name just a few. Finish off the evening with some baked sweetness with Raspberry Coffee Cake, French Silk Pie or a Rhubarb Frangipane Tarte. Shelley’s innate flair for creating and developing recipes will not disappoint and now home cooks across Canada are able to serve their guests...more beautiful food.
