Visitors to Seattle have flocked to the Pike Place Market and its eclectic array of shops and restaurants. Located on a nine acre, hilly parcel in the heart of the city, the market features sweeping views of the waterfront, a world famous fish market, fresh produce vendors, and arcades where artists and craftspeople sell their work.

Food is perhaps the center attraction of Pike Place Market, though; hence, this cookbook shares some of the recipes volunteered by the chefs, food vendors and foodies who either work in or frequent this important culinary destination.

As one would expect, the book features a wide range of appetizers, soups and salads, entrees, and desserts. But given the nature of the market's surroundings, the vegetarian entrees and seafood recipes are what you really want to pay close attention to. The Spicy Vegetable Stew and the Butternut Squash and Oregon Blue Cheese Lasagne are show stoppers as well as the Pasta con Fagioli.

Seafood lovers will want to try the Halibut Cheeks en Papillote, Crabmeat Tagliatelle in Creamy Lemon-Tomato Sauce or the Grilled Salmon with Roasted Hazelnut Butter.

Along with the mouthwatering recipes you'll also finds anecdotes and sidebars about some of the area's famous personalities.
