First Nations Seafood Cookbook

I came across this cookbook while doing some research on the net. Every once in a while you stumble across something and just go "Wow, how cool is that?". To me, this is one of those things.

Published by the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council and 16 Nuu-chah-nulth Nations, Camus(chum-us): West Coast Cooking Nuu-chah-nulth Style, is a 90 page cookbook with color photographs, black and white historical photos, and illustrations that focuses on traditional recipes and seasonal ingredients from the West Coast of Vancouver Island and Northern Washington state.

Here are some features of the book as listed on their order page:

• 65 original First Nations seafood recipes
• 24 full-colour recipe photos; 10 b/w historic photos
• 8 pieces of original artwork by Kelly Poirier
• traditional seafood preparation/preservation methods
• oral history anecdotes from Nuu-chah-nulth members
• conversion tables, measurements, and much more!

This is more than a cookbook, it is a conversation piece, and a piece of history as well.

I have no vested interest in this book, but at $14.95 plus $4 S&H, I think it is a great bargain and a must have for any seafood lover.

Check out the book here, and see if you don't agree.
