From the Sea and Shore is the newest, highly anticipated release from Tonari Gumi (September 2021). Collected from senior members of the Steveston Japanese Canadian community, the recipes reflect their frugality and ingenuity in preserving Japanese tastes and culture using ingredients local to the West Coast. Instructions are accompanied by biographies of community members who contributed their personal and family recipes. Beyond a simple cookbook, From the Sea and Shore is a record for honouring the foodways of an immigrant community and the resilient people who sustained them. 

  • Contains over 65 seasonally-appropriate recipes and accompanying photographs
  • Includes historical notes on Japanese Canadian fishermen in the Steveston community
