Special Culinary Section

This year, the Waggoner Guide celebrates the culinary experience. Managing Editors Lorena and Leonard Landon formerly produced the popular Cleats & Eats guidebooks, and bring their knowledge and passion for cruising food to this edition.

Food is a big part of the boating lifestyle in the Northwest and while cruising the Inside Passage, and the editors have put together a guide to culinary options along the route, from world-class gourmet restaurants to farmers' markets to unique bakeries. The region is experiencing aoom in wineries, breweries, cideries, and distilleries, as well as coffee roasters and other specialty food producers. 

This new Culinary section also describes how to catch and prepare local wild seafood such as salmon, halibut, prawns, and Dungeness crab. Vegetarians won't feel left out, either: find recipes for Sea Asparagus and meatless dishes alongside the classics.

Sections include:

  • Complete guide to fifteen "Culinary Destinations"
  • Bakeries of the Inside Passage 
  • Edible Flowers
  • Farmers Markets from Olympia to Campbell River
  • How to Prepare Sea Asparagus
  • Ocean-Aged Rum and Bourbon
  • Waggoner's Recipe Contest Winners

It’s a shame your website didn’t offer a way for me to add the new Waggoner 2020 guide to the cart or disclose a price otherwise I would have purchased.
