Chef’s Tour- Though many tourists are attracted to the famous Pike Place Market every year, local chefs also selectively choose their seasonal produce and proteins daily from the market. This tour gives us a taste of the vendors that supply the best chefs in town with their organic produce and sustainable seafood. Chef’s Perspective- Our tours are run by chefs who contribute a culinary perspective, telling the story of the Northwest through its food. Local Taste- We strategically choose our partners to ensure the best quality products of the Northwest are represented. Unique Samples- Our Chef whips up a few special tastings using our vendor's ingredients to show how some of these products could be prepared. * Chef-made samples are made prior to class Small Groups- We keep group-size to 10 people and under to provide a more intimate, less touristy experience. This also creates a better dynamic to ask questions, absorb the information and connect with the other group members. Purpose- More than just providing great tasting food, our vendors serve as a talking-point to our farming, fishing and produce in the Northwest and what they are doing to maintain higher quality control than the average. Our team keeps the tours light-hearted but plant the seed to thinking about some very serious issues in these industries.
Chef Liz, is a classically trained chef from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and has spent the last 15 years perfecting her craft. Just as important to her time spent in the kitchen, is her time spent understanding where ingredients come from in their natural environment. The perfect meal starts outside of the kitchen; from the conditions in which the ingredients are raised and treated to the preparation. Using the freshest, sustainable products is essential to maximizing flavor. Once the ingredients are in her hands she focuses on proper seasoning, temperature and complimentary flavor-profiles to enhance her dishes. Creating delicious food is Liz’s outlet to inspire others by opening up their minds to new possibilities in the kitchen.
