Book review: Dishing Up Washington
Thomson, a relative newcomer to Seattle, writes for Sunset and Edible Seattle magazines, and she has crafted a delicious and beautiful book for Storey Publishing as part of its “Dishing Up” series (which includes last year’s Dishing Up Oregon by Ashley Gartland as well as Dishing Up Vermont, Dishing Up Maine and Dishing Up Maryland).
Throughout this 288 page volume are short stories about food producers, farmers markets and profiles on restaurants. You’ll also find wine-pairing tips, and you’ll even learn how to dig for clams.
If the recipes aren’t mouthwatering enough, the photographs by Lara Ferroni will tempt you to no end.
Dishing Up Washington deserves its place among the best cookbooks focusing on Washington and Pacific Northwest cuisine.
