Twelve years ago, Shelley Adams arrived on the British Columbia book scene with a gorgeous self published cookbook, Whitewater Cooks: Pure, Simple and Real Creations from the Fresh Tracks Cafe. In about a year, the 5,000 copy print run had sold out. Shelley sold her publishing rights for the first book to Whitecap Books, a highly regarded publisher that has since gone on to sell tens of thousands of copies. But when Shelley self published a second book, Whitewater Cooks At Home, and sold 6,000 copies in its first 4 weeks - Shelley decided to form her own publishing company with husband Mike Adams. Since then, two more Whitewater cookbooks have appeared, all with the same distinctive design, flair and super fan following. With over 200,000 copies now sold, the Whitewater Cooks brand has become known nationally for simple, healthy, delicious and fool-proof recipes, many of which have become standards in Canadian households.
