Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Smoked salmon, farro and sorrel fritters

    • Frogcake on February 23, 2024

      We loved this recipe. However, in my experience it required some fiddling as the author noted. I made half the recipe but still added three eggs and a few additional tablespoons of flour. It was worth it! I don’t think it’s necessary to toast the farro beforehand as it does get nicely toasted during the frying. These are very good and I will definitely repeat.

  • Spaghetti squash patties with poached eggs and salsa verde

    • hbakke on January 29, 2024

      I occasionally pick a recipe from EYB that is out of my norm, but that I have most of the ingredients to make. This is one of those recipes. I would have never chosen this if not for a sad, old spaghetti squash that needed to be used. Yay to trying new things! We loved the squash patties, and especially the salsa verde. I would make this again.

To know Tofino is to know SoBo, the restaurant at the heart of this magnetic West Coast surf town. Since opening as a purple food truck 20 years ago, SoBo (short for “sophisticated bohemian”) has been bringing people together with Chef Lisa Ahier’s fresh West Coast fare. Year after year, locals and visitors alike return for her killer cooking and the relaxed warmth that can only be found here. Bring home this new slice of SoBo to share with your loved ones. In Together at SoBo, Chef Lisa Ahier shares all-new recipes from her beloved restaurant. Lisa’s recipes are love letters to Tofino and its position as the most westerly point of Canada. Drawing from local produce and a wealth of seafood, these are Pacific Northwest recipes enhanced by Lisa’s Southern flair. Local and seasonal: recipes like the Chanterelle and Corn Chowder and the Nettle, Clam and Shrimp Tagliatelle highlight Tofino’s coastal bounty Classics inspired by Lisa’s Southern childhood: reminisce with her family's Summer Ratatouille and Grilled Peach and Raspberry Melba recipes Seafood standouts: embrace the ocean with the Chinook Salmon with Parsnip Puffs and the Halibut Cheeks with Celeriac Cream Perennial SoBo favorites: try the beloved Roasted Acorn Squash and Kale Pizza and White Bean and Chicken Chili And, in true, community-driven SoBo spirit, throughout the book, Lisa also introduces the people around her who have shaped the restaurant into the quintessential destination it is today. Two decades on from its purple food truck beginnings, SoBo has never lost its namesake “sophisticated bohemian” essence: down-to-earth goodness forged through a connection to the people and place—land and sea—surrounding it.
