The Sobo Cookbook
Recipes From the Tofino Restaurant at the End of the Canadian RoadBook - 2014
Sobo (Sophisticated Bohemian) started out in 2003 as a purple food truck in the parking lot behind a surf shop, way before food trucks were cool. Despite its remoteness, it attracted rave reviews from food media across North America, with the likes of "Saveur" magazine calling it: "perhaps the most exciting lunch stand in North America." The back of the staff's t-shirts read: "Quite possibly the second best thing you can do in a parking lot"--and that same fun, authentic West Coast vibe weaves throughout the stories and recipes in this book. Sobo has since become a destination restaurant, having outgrown its food truck beginnings, with visitors making the pilgrimage to the west coast of Vancouver Island just to taste chef Lisa Ahier's cooking--which is, to use Tofino slang, simply "killer." The restaurant's menu focuses on locally-sourced, seasonally-inspired ingredients from family-owned producers.
