Congratulations Sea Salt authors!

Posted: Tuesday, August 5, 2014 at 5:40pm

Sea Salt: Recipes from the West Coast Galley, by British Columbia-based authors Alison Malone Eathorne, Hilary Malone and Lorna Malone (Harbour Publishing; $29.95), has been shortlisted in the 2014 Taste Canada Awards for the English-language Regional/Cultural Cookbooks category.

This is the second time the authors have received accolades. Earlier this year, Sea Salt won third place in the 2014 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards’ competition for the World’s Best Fish and Seafood Book. It is the collaborative project of the Malone family, who have been exploring Canada’s West Coast together aboard their sailboat, Aeriel, for over twenty years, ever in search of ways to add a local touch to their family fare. Gorgeously illustrated with the fresh photography of Christina Symons, the recipes feature ingredients from many of the one-of-a-kind farmers’ markets and food and drink artisans found along the BC coast. Now Sea Salt has put these local foodie hotspots on the map to an even greater degree with this recognition from the national and international culinary community.

Alison Malone Eathorne is a freelance author who's written travel, food and design articles for publications such as Western Living, BC Home, and Where Vancouver, and contributed her writing chops to the book. Her sister, Hilary Malone, is the fearless cook of the family—she won the Gold Medal in the Skills Canada BC 2013 competition, is a graduate of Vancouver Island University’s Culinary Arts Program, and contributed most of Sea Salt’s recipes. Their mother, Lorna Malone, has been sailing for over thirty years and is a veteran of yacht races like the Van Isle 360° International Yacht Race, a two-week circumnavigation of Vancouver Island—planning meals for the crew of eight helped to inspire this book.

The other nominees in the Regional/Cultural Cookbooks category are Toronto Star Cookbook by Jennifer Bain (Appetite by Random House) and Three Sisters Back to the Beginning by Betty Bakopoulos, Eleni Bakopoulos, and Samantha Bakopoulos (Adelfes). The winners will be announced in Toronto at the Award Ceremony and Gala Reception on Monday, October 20, 2014. For more information about Canada's national cookbook awards, please visit
