Product Details


“His cookbook—really more of an art book, with gorgeous, color-soaked photography by Charity Burggraaf—would have read like fantasy even before the crisis. The recipes really speak to other chefs; rice koji is a recurring ingredient, and few of us will ever lay our hands on bay leaf buds. But if you’re looking to drift to another galaxy, if you want to dream over green strawberries steamed with rhubarb and gooseberries, or gaze on the impossible, swirling beauty conjured from a dish humbly dubbed “heirloom peas and bitter greens,” Wetzel offers heady escapism.” —Los Angeles Times

“Through starkly beautiful photography of artfully-composed dishes, the reader gets an intimate glimpse into the mind of one of the country’s most creative chefs.” —Forbes

“The gorgeous book, which includes everything from Blackberry Stew to Sea Urchin with Rutabaga and Chanterelle, loosely follows the format of the menu at the restaurant…” —Food & Wine

“…page after page you will encounter mesmerizingly simple yet unbelievably complex images. The texture, the colors, the seemingly effortless compositions could rival that of a painting hanging at MoMA. I am truly blown away and cannot wait to journey there one day. This beautifully published book is an attempt to capture the result of all Chef Wetzel and the talented individuals who contributed to LUMMI over a decade… and they succeeded!” —Design Milk

“Between the gorgeous writing, breathtaking landscapes, and Wetzel’s museum-quality plating, Lummi: Island Cooking holds its own against any coffee table book, but those ambitious enough to don an apron and try their hand at the plethora of recipes will discover they most often embody a breezy simplicity” —Yahoo!Life

“…You can try to recreate chef Blaine Wetzel’s James Beard Award-winning cuisine at home, which he beautifully captures in his new book, Lummi: Island Cooking. The hyperlocal ingredients are foraged, farmed and fished around the Puget Sound, and the dishes sound like they were plucked out of a fairy tale…” —Robb Report
