A Rising Tide is a love letter to the culinary renaissance of Canada’s Atlantic Coast written by DL Acken and Emily Lycopolus—both of whom grew up eating classic Atlantic Canadian dishes and spent months in the region exploring its burgeoning food scene.
Whether you are discovering the East Coast’s countryside, seaside towns, or bustling cities, there is a thriving food scene, united by a revived culinary identity that celebrates the region’s terroir, and marries heritage with innovation. Enjoy more than 100 inventive recipes, many by beloved local chefs, and travel to meet the fishermen, producers, foragers, and restaurateurs who have come to define the region’s incredible cuisine. Celebrate local ingredients for each meal of the day no matter where you are thanks to the book’s ingredient substitutions guide.
