Book Giveaway: At the Kitchen Table
CONTEST CLOSED! Thanks everyone.
Greg Atkinson is so modest (and handsome…). As a chef and writer, Greg truly cares about the source of the food he works with. Having spent time visiting local vineyards and working with local fisherman gives him a seed-to-table perspective that I admire. But according to him, the measure that’s most valuable is the amount of heart that brings people together for a meal. Ain’t that the truth.
His new book is sort of a valentine to home cooking. The menus are laced with stories of preparing meals with family and friends. Greg is a well known chef in the Puget Sound area (one of the first to source local ingredients) but his recipes are anything but chef-y. They’re simple and divine and just what you want for your next family meal.
He has a brand new restaurant called Marche on Bainbridge Island. He’s always there and always smiling. And when he isn’t flipping the saute skillet or greeting each customer warmly, he’s making his staff a special meal so they feel taken care of. This guy is a peach. I hear the vegetable plate at Marche is all the rage. See what I mean about finding flavor in simple good food?
