"Traditional foods meet contemporary trends in the cooking of Chef Andrew George Jr.

 

His new cookbook, Modern Native Feasts (Arsenal Pulp Press, $21.95), is a celebration of the foods he loved as a kid. A member of the Wet'suwet'en Nation, George grew up in Telkwa, B.C., in a family of six children. Trout and salmon, moose, deer and rabbit were often on the dinner table."
