Chef Renee Erickson is a mover and a shaker in the trendy Seattle restaurant scene.

I ’ ve always wanted to visit Seattle and, appropriately, I found this essa in the decision of Seattle ’ s fabled Elliot Bay Book Company14344086_10157752883325643_3610551030761432169_nNow, the food….Can you imagine swirling a glass with a martini involving preserved lemon and an anchovy stuffed olives while munching gorgeous artichoke leaves dipped in velvety mayonnaise ( a passion of mine) then being called to this lovely table ( left) to enjoy great conversation while indulging in a dinner of the freshest seafood, vegetables, breads and fruits available–all paired when appropriate with superb wines and prepared by someone who says: “ I can cook ’ til I ’ m blue in the face, but if no one ’ s around to eat it, to form a community around it, it ’ s just a bunch of food ” ( p19)?

A couple of days ago, I was lucky to spend an entire ten days in Seattle with some lovely creatures, a sun that woke me up around 4 every morning, and a kitchen and seafood market at my disposal.

Could n't be any better.I was torn between 4 and 5 stars, but for me, it 's 4 just because while I enjoyed getting to know the uthor, and loved the pictures, it 's not a cookbook I could actually use.

This time, 4 stars for all the nsights and stories shared.

But alas, not so shiny stars for the recipes themselves.
