Caesar Country is a love letter to Canada by way of one cocktail—our cocktail—the Caesar.

In this stunning book, Aaron Harowitz and Zack Silverman—co-founders of Walter Craft Caesar—take you on a deep and detailed dive through the art and science of Caesar making. They share a compelling collection of cocktail and food recipes, including contributions from some of Canada’s top bartenders and chefs, showcasing the countless ways to reinterpret the classic Caesar. Caesar Country is inspired by travels across Canada—the people met, places seen, drinks enjoyed—and seamlessly weaves together the Caesar’s history, evolution,and the innovators behind it, to create a visual and culinary celebration of the country it calls home.

About the Author

Aaron Harowitz and Zack Silverman grew up together in Richmond, British Columbia in the 1980s. Many years later, in 2013, they co-founded Walter Craft Caesar with the simple goal of reimagining Canada’s national cocktail. As a result, it’s entirely possible they’ve tried more Caesars than just about anyone anywhere. This is their first book.



Praise For…


“The ultimate Caesar bible.”
—CHUCK HUGHES, chef and co-owner of Garde Manger, cookbook author, and host of APTN’s Chuck and the First Peoples’ Kitchen

“A beautiful piece of Canadiana through the lens of our national drink. I love this book.”
—MEREDITH ERICKSON, author of Alpine Cooking and co-author of Joe Beef: Surviving the Apocalypse

“The Caesar! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways! Aaron and Zack have created an extremely thoughtful, delicious, iconic cookbook to honour our national cocktail and all things Canadian.  Caesar  Country is a must-have for your collection.”
—LYNN CRAWFORD, Iron Chef, TV personality, and cookbook author

“It’s about time somebody wrote the book on Canada’s national obsession, the (Bloody) Caesar. This  lovingly researched and highly entertaining book proves that there’s always something to learn about this versatile and surprisingly layered cocktail—an enigma, really, wrapped in mystery and topped with bacon. And sometimes shrimp, too.”
—CHRISTINE SISMONDO, author of America Walks into a Bar: A Spirited History of Taverns and Saloons, Speakeasies and Grog Shops

“All hail Aaron and Zack for bringing us this definitive guide to Canada’s national cocktail! While I like my Caesar with freshly grated horseradish, a dash of hot sauce, and an extra splash of vodka, this book showcases plenty of unique ways a Caesar can be enjoyed, thanks to the creative contributions of bartenders, chefs, and purveyors from coast to coast.”
—CHEF MICHAEL BONACINI, co-founder, Oliver & Bonacini Hospitality, and MasterChef Canada judge
