We’ve signed on for Seattle’s only chef-led tour of the market with Elizabeth McClure’ new company Eat Seattle Tours. She also does cooking classes in the Market’s Atrium Kitchen, shopping with the students first for ingredients .
We’re fans of including cooking classes in our travels, learning to make mole with our kids in Oaxaca, Mexico and pasta with other young travelers in Lucca, Italy. We learned to make crab cakes on a Windstar cruise ship, after following the chef to a local market in Croatia. Wherever we go, at the very least we make sure to visit local food markets.
It’s Easter Sunday and at the sumptuous brunch at the Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay in California, little girls are dressed in brightly colored dresses, boys in dress shirts that don’t want to stay in their pants and kids and grown-ups proudly sport bunny ears, some with blinking lights.
