"Acken and Lycopolus are persuasive ambassadors for their beloved Island. Cedar and Salt's visual food tour, complete with lists of local farmers markets and farm-to-table restaurants, makes it hard to resist a trip to Vancouver Island for a real-life food tour." --Foreword Reviews

"It's easy to be inspired by the terroir on and around Vancouver Island, but Salt Spring Island and Victoria food writers D.L. Acken and Emily Lycopolus do a spectacular job of gathering it all up and putting it on a pedestal . . . unpretentious and completely approachable." --Julie Van Rosendaal, Globe and Mail

Lush and eloquent . . . Cedar and Salt is among a new breed of regional Canadian explorations. Inextricable from its location, it's a snapshot of a specific food culture with expansive appeal all the same . . . The choice to structure the book by geography coupled with Acken's atmospheric photography gives readers a deeper sense of place." --Laura Brehaut, Postmedia

"As lovers of food and photography, we can't think of a more inviting activity this season than to hunker down in the kitchen with the newly published, hyper-local Vancouver Island cookbook, Cedar and Salt. (Equally so, ogling and drooling over its pages while cozied up on a comfy chair.)" --The Islandist
