Seasonal Recipes from the Celebrated Whistler Restaurant

Fine dining meets seasonality in this exquisite cookbook from the restaurant Gordon Ramsay called the best in Canada


Fine dining meets seasonality in this exquisite cookbook from the restaurant Chef Gordon Ramsay called the best in Canada

Also called “Whistler’s culinary star” (Seattle Metropolitan) and “one of the top places to dine” (Frommer’s Travel Guide 2008), Araxi’s combination of local produce and sublime natural setting are surpassed by few. From its front door is a view of Whistler Village and two of the highest skiable peaks in North America, a site of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

Highlighting Whistler’s two distinct seasons—summer and winter—Araxi shows off the flavours of the Pacific Northwest with recipes such as Grilled Asparagus Salad with Sherry Vinaigrette and a Crispy Egg; Miso-Crusted Sablefish with Smoked Tuna Broth and Soba Noodles and Chocolate Caramel Pots de Crème with Milk Chocolate–Almond Biscotti. Chef James Walt prepares a harvest menu featuring dishes that use only ingredients grown or raised within 100 miles of the restaurant.

  • Voted Vancouver Magazine’s Best Whistler Restaurant nine times
  • Winner of Wine Spectator’s “Best of” Award of Excellence nine times
