Seattle has a really great food community. Amazing restaurants, a beautiful Pantry to take cooking classes and many, many, thoughtful food bloggers call Seattle home. Aran, Molly and Shauna to name just a few...
We also have an incredible cookbook shop, Book Larder. It is a dream space for anyone who loves to spend time in the kitchen. It is such a pleasure to touch and flip through the books I've had my eye on and learn about those I never knew existed.
They also have a sweet kitchen and offer cooking classes!
If you live in Seattle and have never been, go. Like now. And make sure you give yourself plenty of time to explore.
