June 18th, 2014

Shelley and Mike Adams are the former owners of the Whitewater ski hill near Nelson, B.C. There she ran the Fresh Tracks Cafe, drugs having had training and experience as a chef at Whistler and in the film industry. They sold the ski hill in 2008,enabling her to spend more time on cookbooks. Shelley Adams’ first cookbook, Whitewater Cooks: Pure, Simple and Real Creations from the Fresh Tracks Cafe was first self-published and reputedly sold 5,000 copies within its first season before Whitecap Books took it under their imprint. It was reviewed in the New York Times, Globe & Mail and most of the culinary magazines and ezines. More Magazine featured Shelley Adams in their February 2009 issue, calling her “the chef on skis.” She opted to self-publish her second title, Whitewater Cooks at Home in early March of 2009, as well Whitewater Cooks with Friends. In her latest cookbook, Whitewater Cooks with Passion (Alicon Holdings/Sandhill $34.95), Adams continues to share ambience, flavours, ingredients, conversation, wine, laughter and recipes. 978-0-9811424 -2-5
