Make This Tonight: Queso Fundido with Salsa Verde

We had a staff party at La Mezcaleria last year where they served this queso fundido and we’re still talking about it.

More than a cookbook, the Gastown Foodiethe third in the Foodie series from photographer Brad Hill and author Chris Dagenais—is a guided tour of the cobbled streets, red-brick buildings and bright tables that make up this historic corner of Vancouver. Dish recipes and cocktail how-tos from local chefs and mixologists run alongside atmosphere shots of Craig Stanghetta-designed rooms, historic photos of the turn-of-the-century neighbourhood, scenes of local street art in the alleys and dark, moody restaurant stills straight out of an Edward Hopper painting. It’s the story of Gastown, in coffee-table form, and that’s exactly what you need when you’re hunting for after-work cocktail ideas, locavore dinner recipes or ways to give out-of-towners a sense of the city. La Mezcaleria is just one such haunt featured in Gastown Foodie.
