Whitewater Cooks - Pure, Simple and Real Creations from the Fresh Tracks Cafe
by Shelley Adams
Whitewater Resort in the Canadian Rockies is renowned for its spectacular scenery, deep snow and Fresh Tracks Café. Despite constant pleading from customers, recipes for dishes made famous there were as unattainable as snowflakes in July. Even the café staff was sworn to secrecy. Now, Whitewater Cooks opens the kitchen doors. With this eagerly anticipated book, home cooks can re-create chef Shelley Adams' signature dishes.
About the author: Shelley Adams and her husband, Mike, ran the Fresh Tracks Café at Whitewater Ski Resort where the skiers were constantly asking for the recipes. So she decided to write a cookbook. After Whitewater Cooks, Pure, Simple and Real was published, she thought that her career as a cookbook author would be over. But out-of-town fans and Nelsonites thought differently and were again asking when a second book was coming. And so was created, the second book, Whitewater Cooks at Home. However, over a great dinner in the fall of 2011, Shelley’s daughter, Ali, and her very enthusiastic friend Margie reminded her of her mantra… “Great recipes are meant to be shared!” So the result of the dinner that fall was another year of recipe collecting, tweaking and testing and became Whitewater Cooks with Friends.
