DeLaurenti Specialty Food and Wine, a cornerstone of Pike Place Market’s specialty food scene, has released its very own cookbook to the delight of the culinary landmark’s longtime fans. Specializing in hard to find ingredients, cheeses, meats and a complete selection of wines from around the world, DeLaurenti opened on the corner of First Avenue and Pike St. in 1946.
After three years of work, DeLaurenti co-owners Pat McCarthy and Matt Snyder published the DeLaurenti Cookbook, (Documentary Media, 2014) filled with more than 50 favorite house recipes and tips and recommendations on meats, cheeses, pasta, wine, the kitchen, and more.
With a foreword by Seattle food pioneer Armandino Batali, the DeLaurenti Cookbook also features over 90 images by Seattle food photographer Jim Henkens.
The recipes are delicious but simple, and often feature ingredients that you will find fresh at Pike Place Market. Recipes are designed and tested to be made in the home kitchen. The recipes cover the gamut from Braised Short Ribs with Polenta to DeLaurenti's famous Chocolate Chip Cookies.
The DeLaurenti Cookbook is available on the DeLaurenti website.
