Cooking and Eating Local for Diane and Family
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.

Vegetarian Basics
HANDS ON - CLASS SIZE LIMITED TO 6

This three class series is dedicated to demonstrating the abundant varieties and flavors available to those who choose to eat a plant based diet. We will focus on how to create delicious, flavorful meals with seasonally available ingredients. I am an omnivore so when I create vegetarian dishes I expect them to have the complexity and flavors of meated dishes...and they can. Don't settle for a salad or raw veggie plate...I love them too, but I want more.


Class 1: Building Flavors - Meet the onion family. This ubiquitous bulb is one of the basic building blocks of almost any cuisine on the planet.

Class 2: Grains and beans - Looking for flavor and variety? Here you go!

Class 3: Cooking and entertaining - How to create menus that provide great nutrition and flavor. Your guests won't even realize they were eating vegetarian.

There will be eggs, cheese and milk included in this class.
