Praise for The Sobo Cookbook:

“Of all the places I have had the privilege to visit and cook, SoBo is one of my favourites. Lisa Ahier is a truly talented chef with so much passion and heart. In this book, she shares her delicious recipes, along with stunning photography and stories that encapsulate the beauty of Vancouver Island. I can’t wait to cook them all!” –Lynn Crawford, Food Network host, Cookbook Author & Chef/Owner of Ruby Watchco

“Lisa Ahier’s passion for the West Coast truly shines at SoBo, making it a culinary destination. She has created recipes that elevate simple, fresh ingredients into balanced, flavorful dishes. I applaud her imaginative, energetic and humble nature as a chef, and highly respect her commitment to using the best local ingredients.” –Chef Rob Feenie, Cactus Restaurants Ltd.

“Having cooked with Lisa in SoBo’s beautiful kitchen, I can attest that their food is as tasty as it looks. This book is an inspiration. Namaste.” –Vikram Vij, Cookbook Author & Chef/Owner of Vij’s

The SoBo Cookbook showcases authentic flavors from SoBo’s own fresh, local menu, and captures the lifestyle and beauty of Tofino through the amazing photography of Jeremy Koreski. It’s been over ten years since I tasted my first fish taco out of the purple truck; SoBo may have changed locations since then, but the food tastes just as good.” –Peter Devries, Canadian Surf Champion
