BOOKS FOR COOKS Spring forward... with a new crop of cookbooks celebrating the season WHITEWATER COOKS WITH PASSION By Shelly Adams After starting her career as a caterer to the movie industry in Vancouver, Shelly Adams and husband Mike became owners of Whitewater Ski Resort in Nelson, BC. As creative director of the resort’s dining room, Fresh Tracks Café, skiers were constantly begging for Shelly’s innovative and delicious recipes - and a cookbook author was born. 8 WWW.EATINEATOUT.CA Whitewater Cooks with Passion is the fourth book in the series. The focus in this version is on fresh, healthy recipes that range from innovative vegetarian and vegan dishes to sumptuously rich and extravagant ones that will inspire a passion for food in everyone. Like the other Whitewater Cookbooks, the recipes are simple and rewarding to prepare. The ingredients are healthy and easy to ﬁnd, leaving you with meals you’ll make again and again and not have to spend all day in the kitchen! Some of my favourite recipes include: • kale and brussel sprout salad • polenta eggplant parmesan • oatmeal chocolate avacado cookies • seared scallops ad crispy prosciutto salad with passion fruit vinaigrette The recipes in Whitewater Cooks with Passion are simple and easily handled by the novice in the kitchen. ($34.95) Check out this popular resort favourite House Salad with Clare’s French Vinaigrette.
