“In “Whitewater Cooks with Friends”, Shelley has rounded up the best of her friend’s recipes and put them together in the award-winning formula of the Whitewater Cookbook series - beautiful photographs, divided this time into starters, soups, salads, entrees and desserts with recipes that are easy to use and produce delicious food. “Whitewater Cooks with Friends” is definitely one to bring out in the summer too, as many of the recipes and photos inspire food served outdoors or at the cottage.”
Claire Sear, Eat Magazine
“In hyper-outdoorsy, half-conscious Nelson, set picturesquely between furred peaks and Kootenay Lake and where it seems that everyone of the 10,000 residents skis, mountain-bikes and is passionate about health and good food, Whitewater Cooks has become the equivalent of the Junior League cookbook,”
Christopher Solomon, New York Times
