According to publicity materials:
Vancouver's Granville Island Public Market, established in 1979, is one of Canadas largest and most popular public markets. Featuring over fifty food retailers and day vendors, the Public Market is the main draw at Granville Island, which also features art galleries, retail shops, a live theatre, a hotel, and an art school as well as a functioning cement company, making it one of the biggest tourist attractions in a city that is regularly ranked as one of the world's top destinations by Cond Nast Traveler.
The New Granville Island Market Cookbook features nearly one hundred recipes using fresh produce, gourmet meats, wild seafood, artisanal cheeses, fresh pasta, and other goods found at this or any other public market offering quality,healthful, seasonal foods. Taking off from the original bestselling Granville Island Market Cookbook (published twenty-seven years ago, in 1985), this brand-new collection comments on changes in food culture since the first book was released, and features such market-fresh recipes as barbecued leg of lamb, penne with spot prawns, Nioise sandwich, orange and pomegranate salad, and roasted figs.
