Dolly Watts, who was born in Gitk'san Nation in western British Columbia, and her daughter, Annie, were the chefs/owners of Liliget Feast House, an acclaimed restaurant in Vancouver known for its indigenous specialties from the Pacific Northwest (liligetmeans "where people feast"). Although they recently closed the restaurant, they have collected more than 100 favorite recipes in their first cookbook. Some are traditional, such as Alder-Grilled Marinated Elk, but others, like Sweet Potato Tarts, are not, and the recipe headnotes are fairly brief; however, a separate chapter on smoking and preserving offers a closer historical look at indigenous culinary traditions. Fernando and Marlene Divina's Foods of the Americas: Native Recipes and Traditionsis more comprehensive and wide-ranging, but as one of the few titles on the topic, the Wattses' book is recommended for most subject collections.
