GOLD winner in the 2023 Taste Canada Awards in the Regional / Cultural Cookbooks

In her book Racines, Fisun Ercan invites the reader to follow her culinary journey from her homeland in Turkey to her adopted nation of Quebec.

This book was created at Bika, over the course of an entire year, following the rhythm of the seasons. Fisun offers us a collection of simple recipes that let the ingredients express themselves in their purest nature. Her recipes are created with harmony with nature, sustainability and seasonality in mind.

“We talk a lot about making changes in our lives, getting out of our routine. In my opinion, eating locally and seasonally is a way to do this. Our table and the way we cook are constantly renewing themselves as the crops change.”

– Fisun Ercan
