C Food imageC Food brings the bold avant garde concepts of C Restaurant to the printed page in a stunning book full of images and recipes that are guaranteed to inspire. The book challenged executive chef Robert Clark, owner Harry Kambolis and photographer Hamid Attie to see ingredients from a different perspective. The result is an artful cookbook that is equally perfect for any kitchen or coffee table.

The book also showcases C Restaurant’s commitment and passions, which go far beyond the aesthetics of the plate. From its inception, C has led the way in serving sustainably harvested seafood from local waters and using ingredients that are homegrown. Sustainability is at the forefront of every menu created and the restaurant prides itself on its ability to serve up ethical luxury.

Readers will be inspired to think beyond conventional recipes like: Bayne Sound Scallop with Coriander Grapefruit Jelly and Pacific Oven Roasted Halibut with Parmesan Tuile and Arugula Puree.

Limited editions of the book are available for purchase from C Restaurant (604-681-1164) and Barbara-Jo’s Books to Cooks (604-688-6755) beginning in late October. Other retailers like Chapter, Amazon will be releasing the book in late November.

C Food is already receiving international accolades with invitations to events like the International Festival of Culinary Photography held in Paris each year.

    How can it be “each year” considering this year (2009) is the very first time that it’s being held?
