Brunch with Diane
My own "Sunday Salon"
Salon:important place for the exchange of ideas

I had a wonderful group of guests in my kitchen last week for a hands on class. One of the things I love most about kitchens is how a group of strangers enters and a "family" leaves. Kitchens are magical places where the preparation and sharing of food creates a unique environment for sharing conversation, lots of laughter, and occasionally some dancing. This group convinced me that I should offer brunch classes. So being someone who listens to their students I've decided to offer Sunday Brunch Salons once a month. They'll be filled with some wonderful dishes based on local ingredients and yes....bubbles will be available. My idea is to have an extended lunch time so we can all relax and share some stories and laughter.

Sample Menus Items:
Skillet Breakfast
Seafood Crepes
Savory Onion Bread Pudding
Diane's Famous Deviled Eggs
Pasta with Mushroom Bolognese
Cured Salmon with Creme Fraiche
For purchase:
Bubbles

Private Class

Some of Diane's students have fallen in love with her style and philosophy of cooking as well as her space. These classes are designed to meet specific dietary needs, timing, and/or menus that they want to be able to cook at home. Sometimes these are outside of her regularly scheduled classes. These are designed for 1-2 people and are very focused and hands on.

Contact the kitchen to find out whether or not this might be a solution for your unique situation.

Cooking and Eating Local
A Celebration of Artisan Food
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.

Light and Lovely Lunch
lets take advantage of the seasonal produce
As the weather gets warm and sunshine fills the city I'm drawn to lighter meals. I'll plan each lunch based on the ingredients I can find in the market that week. It might be a wonderful soup, a main dish salad, or a combination of the two. I'll include many dishes that can be transported outside to share with friends for a picnic or just a "let's drink some pink wine and relax" kind of meal.
Think of this as a "blackboard on the sidewalk" kind of offering. I'm not sure what we'll make but whatever it is it will be made with whatever is at the height of the season.
