Northwest Essentials emphasizes cooking with the bounty of local and regional ingredients available in the Pacific Northwest. Originally published ten years ago, it was instantly recognized as a classic. With the growing importance of eating locally and in season, Northwest Essentials has been reissued, this time filled with over forty beautiful photographs of the fruits, seafood, mushrooms, lentils, and hazelnuts of the region. But this isn't just a book to make your mouth water; it's a book to cook from - the recipes are elegant, simple, and accessible. Filled with personal stories and nostalgia, chef and author Greg Atkinson lures the reader into each chapter about the Northwest's essential ingredients.
