Coastal Cookbook of the Week: Eating Up the West Coast

September 23, 2015 | By | Comments (1)

Our first-ever food issue has just debuted! In celebration, we’re introducing you to five new cookbooks we love in our “Coastal Cookbook of the Week” series!

First in the lineup? Eating Up the West Coast by Brigit Binns.

Eating Up the West Coast

The ambitious cookbook offers up “the best road trips, restaurants, and recipes from California to Washington,” and after a cover-to-cover look, it’s hard to disagree. Binns’ meticulously curated collection of restaurant-inspired and Sunset-Test-Kitchen-refined recipes is nothing short of drool-worthy.

For a starter, we’re craving these Baked Oysters inspired by The Oyster Bar, near Bow, Washington. Fresh oysters are always satisfying, but add bacon, heavy cream, and a dash of Tabasco and they are downright divine.

For lunch, we’re thinking fish tacos – Grilled Fish Tacos with Chile-Lime Slaw and Avocado-Tomatillo Salsa, more specifically. Marshall, California’s The Marshall Store makes a pretty convincing argument that Californians know a thing or two about crafting the perfect fish taco. Jalapeños and cilantro play supporting roles in this fresh dish.

Cedar-Planked Wild Salmon with Beurre Blanc – it’s what’s for dinner. Perfected by Quilcene, Washington’s Timberhouse, this rich take on cedar-plank-cooked salmon marries white wine with heavy cream and shallots.
