To celebrate its 85th anniversary, White Spot has launched a cookbook capturing the spirit of the legendary restaurant.

Chronicling its evolution from a single drive-in location in 1928 to a modern family restaurant with locations in B.C., Alberta and Asia, the fully-illustrated book brings White Spot into family kitchens with recipes for classic dishes like chicken pot pie and fish and chips, as well as contemporary feature entrées like salmon, prawn and scallop risotto – all tailored for the home cook.

The White Spot Cookbook is a tribute to our long-time guests and loyal staff, and the countless memories we’ve made together,” said White Spot president Warren Erhart. “You’ll find new twists on classic menu items, and contemporary dishes that may surprise you.”

From Vancouver’s early days of Model T Fords, through the hot rod era of the 1950s, the pages take readers on a culinary journey that includes historic photos and testimonials from long-time staff and celebrities, such as Michael Bublé, Red Robinson, David Foster, Pat Quinn and Wayne Cox. Among the recipes are Bishop’s chicken curry by renowned chef John Bishop, and Chuck Currie’s favourite burger – a Portobello mushroom and Cambozola cheese-inspired creation from White Spot’s executive chef.

Until Dec. 31, partial proceeds from every book sold will benefit Variety – The Children’s Charity.
