Private perfect quiche and other savory pies
YOU MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED TO RESERVE THIS CLASS
pie...it's not just for dessert anymore.
There is nothing like a trip to France to do a bit of a quiche re-boot. I was reminded of how truly
wonderful this quintessential French meal can be. I've also been a fan of pies for years and savory ones are not something many of us think about. So here you go. And by the way, these make for some pretty good second meals too. :-)

YOU MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED TO RESERVE THIS CLASS
One of the treasures of Seattle and the Northwest, Pike Place Market is a trove of merchandise and vendors, many of whom have long and illustrious histories at the Market. Both visitors to and longtime residents of Seattle can experience the Market in new and wonderful ways with culinary instructor Diane LaVonne as she introduces you its vibrant producer operated stalls. Shopping the market with your private chef, you will immediately recognize Diane’s approach to food and friends, connecting to each other and the larger community. While the foods of the Market are the focal point of the tour, what makes the tour really special is the vendors who share their expertise and enthusiasm generously with Diane and her guests. As a natural storyteller, Diane can provide you with the context of these amazing people and their products. Based on more than three decades of relationships, these folks are not only collaborators in creating an innovative and committed “food community,” they serve as important resources and on-going inspiration for Diane’s Market Kitchen.
After discovering the market, enter the bright and spacious Diane’s Market Kitchen, take a seat at the counter and feel yourself relax. Prepare to be delighted as Diane demonstrates how to prepare an authentic Northwest meal with the wonderful locally produced ingredients chosen by and for you.
When you leave, you will have a satisfied palate, a set of recipes and wonderful memories, a true taste of the best Seattle has to offer, the people of Pike Place Market, and a meal created with the gifts from the waters, farms and orchards which surround this gem of the Northwest.
