The Seattle Public Library hosts 'Seattle Cooks' on the Amazon campus

Seattle Cooks logo

This September, The Seattle Public Library will bring "Seattle Cooks," a series of events featuring cooking demonstrations and tailored cookbooks from the collection, to the Pike Place Market Express' South Lake Union location on the Amazon campus at 410 Terry Ave. N.

 

Library programs are free and open to the public.

 

At each Seattle Cooks event, Seattle Culinary Academy students will demonstrate various recipes, then give out samples of the recipes and answer questions. The Library will also have a range of books to inspire both novice and experienced cooks available for check out.

 

Dates and times for Seattle Cooks events are as follows:

 

"People are thrilled with the uniqueness of having the Library on hand while they shop," said librarian Jane Gibson, initiator of the Seattle Cooks project. "The cooking demos have been especially popular, and we've checked out a lot of cookbooks! Seattle Cooks has been a great way for the Library to connect with chefs, authors, farmers, amateur cooks and entrepreneurs."

 

Seattle Cooks is supported by The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation and The Seattle Public Library Foundation, and is presented in partnership with the Seattle Culinary Academy at Seattle Central College and Pike Place Market Express.
