Reviews
...a wonderful rush of a book, filled with photographs of that dazzling mundane place... Jess gathered ingredients and recipes from nearly every purveyor in the place and turned those random scribblings into something great."
Shauna Ahern, Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef

...an excellent collection of recipes and stories from Seattle's public market. I laughed out loud so many times while reading some of the really great anecdotes in the book. I give it two thumbs up!
Monica Bhide, A Life of Spice

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread? Bliss, and perfect with a cup of Market Spice tea (the original flavor, if you have to ask). The apple clafouti--what she calls the French Apple Custard Cake--is another bit of bliss, combining the best of the produce smells with the best of the buttery bakeries. For savory things, the Spicy Marinated Feta is lovely, redolent of all the market's garlicky, spicy, pickled delights. ...reading and cooking with Jess's book is as close as I've ever come to duplicating a physical walk through the market without actually being there.
Edible Seattle

Seattle writer Jess Thomson navigates the wild wonders of our world-famous Market via this go-to guide, which includes recipes for fresh offerings at market stalls as well as specialties by Seattle restaurant royalty. Learn the secret to Le Pichet's salade verte, the pulled-pork sandwich at Matt's in the Market and Fran's Gold Bar brownies from Fran's Chocolates.
Seattle Magazine

The cookbook has a good balance of simple recipes (including some particularly drool-worthy sopaipillas, fresh tortillas fried and topped with chipotle, cinnamon, and cumin) and more complex, fancy dinner party recipes (like a clam, mussel, and white bean paella). In the book, the vendors' hints are successfully combined with Thomson's food wisdom... With Pike Place Recipes, Thomson invites readers into the market as more than overwhelmed tourists or jaded locals--instead we arrive as excited home chefs and members of an ever-growing food community.
Seattle Metropolitan

Pike Place Market Recipes is more than a cookbook, flipping through its pages is like taking a tour through the variety and delight of Seattle's famous public market... The result is a book that captures the importance of place to a market like Pike Place. The place where things come from, but also the place that is the market itself. A historic landmark, a public gathering place, an anchor for a city.

The book is well worth a look even if you're not from Seattle...it's full of fantastic recipes, and wonderful stories about the famed and storied market.

I couldn't imagine a more perfect gift for a newcomer to the Seattle area than this book. It's part guidebook, part cookbook, part tale of food-lover in paradise.
