"The best values (in cookbooks) are those that do double duty as both cookbooks and guides. Models of the genre are the volumes of the Canadian Flavours series published by Formac. Virginia Lee's Pacific Flavours is a sumptuously illustrated compilation of the recipes of West Coast chefs who take special interest in the products of the region."
