80 wonderful recipes and gorgeous photography that express the flavors and atmosphere of the world-renowned Pike Place Market–for local and visiting home cooks alike.
The Pike Place Market sits in the center of downtown Seattle and at the center of the Seattle food scene. With its famous seafood and locally grown produce, it is seven acres of wonderful ingredients and inspiration for the home cook. Cookbook author Jess Thomson has prowled the Market’s stalls, shops, restaurants, and purveyors to assemble a collection of recipes that celebrate the essence of Pike Place Market. Included here are Le Pichet’s Salade Verte, Etta’s Mini Dungeness Crab Cakes by Tom Douglas, and the Pink Door’s Linguine alla Vongole. The author has also created recipes that are inspired by ingredients found at the market, such as Spanish Chickpea and Chorizo Stew (with Uli’s Sausage) and a MarketSpice Tea Cake. The cookbook can also serve as a guide to the specialty shops and off-the-beaten path purveyors and cafes. With gorgeous images of prepared recipes, dazzling ingredients, and scenes of the Pike Place Market, this is the ultimate Seattle cookbook.
