Sea Salt is the perfect cookbook to complement life on BC’s coast. It features ingredients from local producers on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, including places Hilary’s Cheese, Nanoose Edibles Heritage Farm, and Vancouver Island Brewery. It’s full of fun, creative recipes that are beautifully illustrated with photography from Christina Symons and best served with a fresh sea breeze, such as Sablefish Frittata, Salt Spring Island Mussels with Fennel and Ale, and Sea Salt and Caramel Brownies. And the best part is that everything can (and has!) be made out on the water in the galley kitchen of a sailboat!

Sea Salt is the collaborative project of three members of the Malone family from Nanaimo. Lorna, the mom, is the veteran yacht racer and taught her daughters, Hilary and Alison, to sail and cook alongside her on the family sailboat, Aeriel. She’s participated in the Swiftsure, the Van Isle 360°, and other races that take place off the coast of BC, and as a result is the expert behind most of the recipes in the ‘Racing’ section of the cookbook—a collection of quick, hearty recipes that help keep everyone going through those windy yacht races when the crew is needed on the rail.

Alison Malone Eathorne is a freelance author who’s written travel, food and design articles for publications such as Western Living, BC Home, and Where Vancouver, and contributed her writing chops to the book. Meanwhile her sister, Hilary Malone, is the fearless cook of the family—she just won the Gold Medal in the Skills Canada BC 2013 competition, is a student of Vancouver Island University’s Culinary Arts Program, and contributed most of Sea Salt’s recipes.
