Brian Wood, a pal from bookstore days, is now working as a literary agent in B.C., and recently shared his delight at seeing one of his first clients make a huge splash with their first book, published by Arsenal Pulp Press. Called Where People Feast: An Indigenous Cookbook, it's by mother and daughter team Dolly (Watts) McRae and Annie Watts, who for the last twelve years have run their award-winning restaurant Liliget (a Gitksan word meaning where people feast) in B.C. They've drawn rave reviews from all over North America (The New York Times gave Liliget a four star recommendation), plus Dolly recently participated in the BC Gold Komochi Konbu Iron Chef Challenge, cooking alongside Japanese Iron Chefs ... and won! Where People Feast can be ordered online through Amazon. More info can be found here.
